Day 2: My Sober Vegas Vacation πŸœπŸŒ΄πŸŒ†

Where do I start… this place is amazing! Fitbit tells me we walked 22km yesterday and 10.5km today. My feet agree! But really, you’re wondering whether or not I have fallen prey to the bright lights, glitz and glamour and started drinking?

Day 1: at the brink of hitting the drink

Yesterday I almost caved. Some of our group got really pissed and I struggled with being around that. Let’s just say that I learned how people change when they’re drunk. I guess I changed when I used to be drunk as well. And I never truely noticed it before because I used to be drunk alongside them. 
An icy cold glass (ok bottle) of Napa Valley sparkling wine in the sun would have been an ideal solution. But I didn’t go there. Instead, I went to bed and got up early this morning to an amazing tropical breakfast. Giving in would have been easy and fun for a while. But actually, after one glass I’d probably be toasted (alcohol tolerance is at an all time low). Then I would have gone to bed angry with myself and would have probably woke up this morning with a hangover, late, and grumpy.

Day 2: had no wine and I’m feeling fine

The first day was hard but today was not. I didn’t look at all the drinking and think how nice a drink would be like I did yesterday. Instead, I thought how much of a fuckwit I would become if I had a drink because let’s be honest, it is never just a drink. 

Today we shopped, saw some wonderful sights and ate some amazing food. The salad I had at lunchtime was possibly better than the salads back home. And the Hershey’s chocolate I munched on after our evening meal as we strolled down Fremont Street was devine. I haven’t really eaten American chocolate before – it was damn delicious and I enjoyed every bite, guilt-free! After all, a chocolate bar in my eyes after all our walking and in lieu of one – two bottles of wine per night is completely fine.

This evening, while everyone else decided to stay out drinking (surprise surprise!), I came back to our hotel. Some down time, brief journaling and before bedtime yin yoga is my ideal way to end this magic day.

Goodnight everyone, goodnight Las Vegas. ❀️

    • Good morning,
      I’m sorry to hear you aren’t feeling too good. It would be easy to get into the holiday vibe and drink; I’m sure it happens often. Tomorrow is another day.
      Thank you for your kindness and encouragement. It was so tough on the first day. Much easier now. Will write again soon xoxo

    • Good morning Wendy, I’m with you! So many amazing sensory overloads – I now genuinely believe you can come here and have a great time. I’d even suggest it’s better than if you’re drunk!
      Have a great day, talk soon. xoxo
      Ps I read your blog with interest but I cannot seem to share comments with you. Perhaps because it’s a different platform to WordPress? Any advice greatly appreciated ❀️
