GOALS

So the long term goal is to drop below 14 units a week and I’m currently sitting on 57 units a week. This seems like a lot, too much, too big a problem… is it a problem? I mean I’m not really hurting anyone, no one knows that I’m drinking too much, it’s normal if anything (I think a lot of my friends drink a comparable amount — do they ?).

SMART

SMART goals are really useful when attempting something new, if you’ve not come across them before it’s an acronym that stands for:

Specific

Measureable

Achievable

Realistic

Targeted

and I think I have applied all of them to this week’s goals. So fingers crossed, but the proof will be in the pudding or more likely the bottle.
