Wish Me Luck…. Please!

As I sit here at the computer with a beer in hand, typing slowly because I have a beer in one hand, I’m about to type one of the hardest things I’ve ever written. While meaning it.

I’m going to stop drinking!

For a while anyway. I have several Facebook and Instagram friends over the last year or so go off alcohol for a month or so, including the latest inspiration, Jimmy Eaton who challenged himself to 90 days alcohol free. He then kept going a bit longer. I don’t know what number of does he got to or if he is still going. Be cool if you could put a comment down the bottom Jimmy you legend.

Everyone I followed on their alcohol free journey commented about how much healthier they felt and how much fitter, etc. My motivation is different. When it feels like life is ruled by debt and alcohol it is time to make a change. Water is so much cheaper than beer. Well, it is if you drink it from the tap instead of bottles.

I had a friend once ask me how much debt I was in and I told him. He laughed at me and called me lucky. He then told me how much debt he was in, which was about 4 times as much. I wanted to point out that he was living in his debt and that if he decided to be debt free he could sell the cause of his debt and start renting but some arguments really aren’t worth it. Especially when he and his brother were also going halves in another debt that someone else was paying rent for.

Anyway, my point is that, debt doesn’t disappear while pissing money away at the bottle shop. 

This will not be a forever thing and I have thought about how long do I put this ban in place for? How long do I let my stubby holder collection just sit there, unused, for?

I can’t promise anything as impressive as Jimmy’s 90 days. So here is my plan. As soon the beer in my fridge is gone, which will probably be today, I will not buy any alcohol until I celebrate shaving my head on Friday 31st May.

That’s right! Cross promotion. On the 31st May 2019, my boss Tiaan and I are going to shave our heads for the World’s Greatest Shave. Here’s a bit about the plan:-

Tiaan needs a haircut so we are doing this. We will get the clippers out and take it all off. The number on the clippers is up to you. 

If we only get up to $1,000 we’ll get #4

up to $2,000 we get #3

up to $3,000 we get #2

up to and over $4,000 we get #1

and if we reach our goal of $5k then we will get the razor and go smooth. 

We’re taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation – we’re on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer!

If you want to help Team PaintRight Currimundi reach our goal (Please?!) then click here, http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/paintrightcurrimundi

It will be streamed live on Social Media here. So you can join us from home your closest mobile device.

I’m hoping that the alcohol free time doesn’t make me any harder to live with as I dry out. Although, if you met my kids you would see why I drink so they deserve it. Just kidding. My issues started before them. So, wish me luck. I’m going to need it. It has taken 3 beers to write this. 3 more and it starts.
