Tomorrow will be one week without liquor. I kind of challenged myself to go the month of January without...now I am wondering why...I can...I just don't want to.

I'll hold you down. Looking at some Belle Glos with dinner tomorrow.

With enough Belle Glos, you won't have to hold him down.

That's what somebody told me at least.

I've been drinking three days per week for a few months now...no stress or anything, just love the stuff...thought I should slow it down....but am rethinking that...

I'm going dry from Jan 2 - 30. Will be the longest stretch I've gone without a drink in several years.

I figured my liver could use the break, I'll save a little money and my wife is trying to lose a few lbs. Hopefully all accomplished by Friday the 31st!

It will be good practice for when your body turns on you and gives you a hangover when you didn't even get a buzz.

For circumstances beyond my control. I go 4 months dry, drink beer for a week at Christmas, then another 4 months dry then 3 months of beer and rum. At one point in my life I was a weekend alcoholic. I lost about 50 lpbs over two years on my current schedule.

I've gotten down to drinking one night per week.

BTW, I would love to drink with all you guys...no politics allowed.

It's worth it. Just to prove you can. Personally I sleep better, wake fresher, work better and maintain a healthy weight while eating trash. Add booze and my weight just jumps up.

Good luck!

One of my fitness gurus says it's in large part a sugar thing. Booze is sugar and by God your body wants it. Personally my sugar addiction has been unbeatable. I'm 6'1 188 which is OK. But losing those last 10 pounds has been impossible just because sugar has just flat got me.

I will drink with anybody and buy the first round.

Dating married women works better. When her husband comes home you've gotta run and it gets your heart rate up. (You can thank me later).

Plus you can't go back to that bar again.

About 38 years ago I realized I had a drinking problem - the more I drank the drunker I got and the drunker I got the more I drank. Had a big stash of booze because I was a buyer and the salesmen brought me presents every Christmas. Finally dumped it all out and our drains ran great for months.

Tee totaled for 12 years. Tried some non alcoholic brews for a while and finally started back with an occasional beer. Haven't had any problems with it since. Crystal meth is enough for me. (JK)

Good for you. I've known plenty of addicts and I'm happy to applaud and salute any person that embraces their own will power to make a positive difference in their life.

Keep kicking ass.

I take a month off every once in awhile if I feel things are getting away from me. I usually drink a few times a week, but if I hit a patch of drinking every night for a month, I will back off. Addiction runs in the family, so I try to monitor addictive things. Last time I did one was November 2019.

I second the intermittent fasting. Down 80+ pounds in 13 months tomorrow morning.

A world within wine is one I don't want to live in. Happy though to have beer and the hard stuff (except occasionally) in the rear view mirror.

I've never drank booze and my last beer was in February, 1986. That only sounds like a long time until I consider how it's been since I've been laid,.
