This is day two of no alcohol
Oh fuck, someone just told me about DTs and how bad it is to quit drinking cold turkey so it freaked me out. I'm going to have one beer tonight (I'm used to four a night, 5.5% alcohol content, Sierra Nevada typically) But I will count this as day two still because I'm not really drinking, I'm just trying to stave off the DTs, it scared me lol
>>124820yeah, if say your regular is 7 drinks a day, don't cold turkey, drop to like 4 drinks for a few days then 2 drinks, stay there or if you think you can just 1 drink or don't drink
Day 3, having only one beer again, but this time I removed 1/4 cup of beer from it. I plan to do this every day until I am down to not consuming any alcohol at all. >>124833Yeah my plan is something like that.
>>124840best of luck anon
Day 4, had one beer but removed out 2/4 cup from it before drinking.I realize this weening-off scheme is a bit silly just for one beer but I may as well finish on this course while I'm at it.>>124844thanks man
Day 5Another can of beer, this time removing 3/4 cup of before drinking it.
>>124858>>124868i started lowering my beer intake thanks to you, and today is day 2 of drinking less beer. i was a religious 10 beer per night drinker. yesterday i limited myself to 8, and i woke up a couple of times in the middle of the night, but it took me noticeably less time to get my shit together. i drank 8 tonight again. tomorrow and the day after i will drink 7.
Day six, poured one beer but not before removing 1 cup from it. I'm almost down to 0 beers per day. However Fridays I can already tell are going to be the hardest, because that's usually when I unwind after the work week and drink a bunch while playing Elden Ring. Ah well, I can do this. >>124871Good for you mane. 10 per night's nuts, your health must not be doing too good right now. I'm already doing bad with my health because I've been drinking 3-5 beers per night, 6 on weekends. Get too tired when working out, get out of breath more easily, get light headed and see spots when I stand up too fast, and of course the beer belly. That stuff is really starting to subside though after only 6 days, well except for the beer belly, although I don't feel bloated all the time like I did a week ago.
>>124878I hope you quit alcohol. Alcohol is bad. I haven't touched it outside of a few sips of wine for over 15 years. Never happier. I do no drugs. Never cleaner.
Day 7Removed 1 and 1/4 cup from the beer. Down to just a few sips. Tomorrow or the day after I will be down to literally 0 alcohol per day.>>124891Me too, mane. These side affects of quitting are scaring me. I have had a headache on and off all day today, and I never get headaches. So I'm guessing it's similar to how coffee addicts start to get headaches if they don't have their daily coffee. Also the itchy skin on the first couple nights freaked me out
i failed and went overboard tonight and i let my friends down. it was my friend's birthday and i planned on not drinking at all, so i drove. i gave in, and i drank too much. i forgot i drove. my car is at the bar still. i ubered everybody hope. might have to ask one of them to drive me to the bar to pick up me car but it's probably towed or will be towed. i fucked up big time.
>>124940We lose our wayWe get back up againIt's never too late to get back up againAnd one day you gonna shine againYou may be knocked downBut not out foreverLose our wayWe get back up againSo get up, get upYou gonna shine againNever too late to get back up againYou may be knocked downBut not out forever
Day 8Removed 1 1/2 cups from the single beer. It was basically just a sip or two that was left. I think I'm pretty much down to 0 beers if I were to remove another 1/4 cup, so I think tomorrow will be 0 beers and 0 alcohol.
I am drunk and I love drinking! But good luck anon I wish you the best
Day 9b'aint no beer at all today, oin't it?
Day 11Forgot to post yesterday, didn't drink yesterday or today though
>>125012Good work, bro. Keep it up.
Keep it up dude. t. sober for 4 years.
Day 13. Forgot to post yesterday but did not drink yesterday.Currently sitting in a hotel room, drinking "just one beer" because I'm in a hotel room and there's fuck all to do. There's no way I'm getting drunk from this but I don't want to relapse or anything, so I'm going to avoid getting a second one. However I'll probably have another beer tomorrow since I'm at the hotel tomorrow as well. Eventually I'm going to have to stop playing games and set a hard limit to 0, right? This is a far cry from getting drunk every night for the past few years like I've been doing, but I have heard of legitimate alcoholics relapsing after just one beer and going crazy. I don't feel the temptation to drink another but I'll keep an eye on it... hopefully...>>125033>>125031Thanks man.
I ordered room service, a burger with fries and I ordered another beer with it. I couldn’t finish it. I think I’m making progress.
Day 1I want some a beer smdh
Day 2 I want some beer
Day 3I want some beer
>>125101How're you doing today Anon? Congrats on three days, you should be proud
>>125117I had 5 beers last nightDay 1 I guess
yesterday was day 2 but forgot to post day 3
>>125143godspeed anonremember it's about overall progress not how long your current streak is
Did you guys also crave sweet things when you were cutting back/quit? I never used to care about desserts, but ever since reducing my alcohol consumption I find myself craving something sweet almost all the time a couple of hours after eating dinner.
>>125465Not even a little. I never had a sweet tooth to begin with. The only thing I ever craved after I quit was the bitter bite of an IPA's flavor. I got some non alcoholic beers from a decent brand who specializes in non alcoholic beers and it kicked the craving right in the ass.
Day 1Got my NA beer, wife is going to be gone for a week, I'm good to go
>>125482O SHIT I HAD A BEER AAAAAAA SAVE ME NIGGERMAN
>>124817quitting is not worth it
>>125491IM ON BEER 3!!!!!!
>>125492Why not? You sleep better and you don't feel bloated all the time. That's the main reason I'm trying to quit
>>125493>>125482The good news is i aint got no work tomorrowRE4 remake is on my backlog, bout to fire that bad boy up
I was advised to quit or at least severely lower my alcohol intake by my doctor because of my liver enzymes and blood pressure. I went from drinking 8 pints per night every day for the past 8 years, now I'm down to about a pint and a half after about a month.I didn't realize it until recently, but I'd been hungover every day for 8 years. I can't believe how much better I feel in the mornings and during the day, and I have no idea how I managed to function at work like that. I'm surprised nobody noticed, or at least said anything. My main issue is that I feel like I forgot how to have fun. I used to drink continuously after work or dinner and rewatch TV shows or anime or movies I'd already seen until I went to sleep, but now I don't know what to do with myself in the evenings while sober. Maybe it's a good time to tackle my backlog.
>>125496I had six beers tonight. I got banned for the past few days but I drank once every other during that time. I also deleted the RE4 remake because I didn't like it
