Without any exaggeration, if I have a lager from the fridge at (say) 7pm, I’ll have 1 or 2 more and from 7pm to whatever time I get up the following day I do nothing productive at all.
I just watch telly and bugger about.
If I don’t drink, my mind is capable of doing things (writing these little stories for example) until about 11pm with ease.
So, conservatively, if I say that by not drinking, I have 2 extra hours of sparky, productive time on my hands every single day – then if I don’t drink for 365 days a year I have 365 x 2 hours = 730 extra productive hours each year.
That’s 30.4 days per year.
Or 1 month.
To do with as I please.
I have not processed this properly yet.
Because I don’t know what I am going to do.
I don’t know what action I am going to take, if any.
I have great plans, lots to do and I do need a little more time.
But how much do I want it?
I’ll let you know.
