I stopped drinking on New Years day. I was drinking a liter of rum every weekend and about 6 beers through out the week.
I have been drinking often since I was 17yrs old. But in the last 10 months I got really bad. I cut my achillies and was pretty much stuck to the lazyboy with a drink in my hand.
In the last 31 days I have lost 16lbs! I was 255lbs on New years and was 239lbs this morning! As soon as I stopped drinking the weight poured off.

Yeah, buddy. I quit drinking 3 years ago and I’m about 55lbs lighter than I use to be. If you’re nervous about will-power and going back to it, my advice is find new things to fill the void and keep your mental focus on the things you can enjoy. If your mindset is right, staying off the booze is easy. Hit up some late night coffee shops, have a non-alcoholic beer (they’re really not that bad) at the bar, or my personal favorite… dancing. Go learn some salsa, rumba, tango, etc. Pretty soon you’ll wonder why you ever wasted time with alcohol.
