Exactly 30 days ago, an athlete I work with approached me about wanting to cut back on drinking. We talked for a while about the effect alcohol plays on athletic performance and what a reasonable amount of alcohol is per week. In the end, the athlete was determined to abstain from drinking for 1 month. Trying to be as supportive as possible, I decided to jump on board! Now, I realize that 30 days is not a long time – it actually went by quite quickly – and I am not a huge drinker anymore as it is. (bye bye college and 20’s). However, I thought it would be fun to share what I learned form my 30 days of sobriety.
