Since the day of the last entry on here I have not purchased a single bottle of champagne! This is due to a self imposed embargo on purchasing champagne. I was told 'that's great, you ll be sober then' but my friend stood corrected after I uttered 'just because I'm not purchasing champagne does not mean I won't be drinking it or drink at all'. So since the second letter in my alphabet is B (first is C -hampagne) Burgundy has been lubricating my thoughts.
I will continue with the embargo for at least the month of October and likely November, during which I'm relying on my self control to abstain from any nectar with side effects. This however does not mean that I am particularly strong willed.
