Most Thanksgivings of my adulthood I was hungover. The Wednesday night before Thanksgiving was a Wednesday with a day off the next day! Live it up, connect with old friends home for the holidays. It’s one of the biggest, if not the biggest, drinking nights in America.
As I ride into work on the Friday after Thanksgiving I am both so grateful that I am sober today and sympathetic to all those struggling with a hangover and wishing they felt better so they could be more present with the day. I send out healing thoughts and strength to those who decide to say enough! You can do it!
