Weekend in the mountains
This is actually where we were and it was beautiful! We had a great time and I did OK with the alcohol. I really do think the naltrexone is helping but it doesn't last all day.
Friday - I took one, waited an hour, came home form work, had one beer while packing up, got to our place we stayed, had one more and then just went to bed - at like 10:30! I was so tired. That is very unusual vacation behavior for me. I usually partay that first night and then am mad that I wake up with a hangover on my first day there. So that was good.
Saturday - I took one around 1:00. I knew how much I like sitting in the sun in the afternoon in the mountains and having a beer, so I took one as a precaution. Well, yes I did and 4 more which is too much but it was spread out over the course of about 9 hours. I did not ever get that "I need more" feeling and went to bed around 11:00.
Sunday - Again I took one around 1:00 and had a beer in the sun. Then I waited a while because we bought ski passes and used it to haul our bikes up the mountain and ride down. I more at dinner and made the mistake of switching to wine. I had two at dinner and then two more glasses back at the hotel. I did get a little buzzed, loud and annoying which I wasn't happy about but not too terribly bad. I did wake up with a little hangover the next day but not terrible. I think my trouble was that I switched to wine and that I took the pill so early that it had worn off by later that night.
Overall, it was a good weekend. We were very active which felt great! As for a vacation, I would say it was successful. I drank a little more than I wanted, but far less than I have in the past.
Last night I took a pill, and only drank 2 beers. I didn't even feel like finishing the second beer which is a good thing!
Overall, pretty successful I would say :)
