My tongue looks a healthy pink, and not like the bottom of an incontinent parrot's cage
I haven't felt sick once
The whites of my eyes are white
I've lost 3lb in weight
All this in just 12 days of not drinking! There are other physical changes, too, which, added to the above, tell me I must have been much tighter in the grip of alcohol than I wanted to admit when I started my October challenge. I'm feeling so much more positive now that even though it's not the end of the month yet, even though I haven't succeeded in reaching my target one month, I'm thinking up my next challenge ... but I'm not going to tell you what it is just yet! You'll just have to keep coming back to find out!
