i had a homie that quit drinking b/c of the hangovers (and he converted to a new religion). he said that he would always get a hangover when he drank... no matter if he drank just a bit. he said it was God, and his body's way of tellin him not to drink nemore.

Weak!


I don't really approve of drunkness, I almost look down on it on a public level. I use to be a heavy drinker when i was younger. They use to call me the alcoholic. I think i hit my peak when i was 19-20. I didn't even go out on my 21st birthday.

I do drink but to enjoy it. Most of the time if i'm out with my buddys i just drink a beer other time nothing, but no more then 2 beers depending hoow much time till i leave. It not hard for me to say no to another beer even if it is handed to me. I'll just leave it on a table.

I actually don't even like going to the bars with my friends. I don't fit in with them or the crowd. I prefer a simple setting where i can actually hear the person next to me with out blarring music in the background.

I understand what your saying....
at times i do ok by setting my limits.
other times i say fuk it and wanna drink the whole bottle. i've done enough drinking i say. though a casual drink doesn't hurt now and then, i would rather shut it out completely. just to see how my life turns out..

Good for you. Made myself a similar promise a while back. Drinking was way out of hand and decided to make some necessary changes in my life. I won't kid you. I still drink from time to time, but nowhere near the amounts I use to drink.

My first real challenge was during the holidays, new years eve especially but I managed.

Best of luck.

Use SJ as an inspiration. He made a promise and as for how his life turned out, well, lets just say he has a nice website

Na, it can be done. I gave up drinking all hard liquor; brandy, tequila, gin, whatever.

I thought it'd be tough but it really wasnt. I still drink the occasional beer but I try to limit myself to no more then 3 or 4. If I have 6 i've had to much.

i'm pretty happy about my decision and yeah at first everyone gave me crap about quitting but slowly and surely they've come to respect my wishes.

Good luck. I hope you stay on track.

Another thought might be to think of the money your saving. That stuff must add up. Stay focused.

I have faith in you Wheels
Its easier than you think - and those that say nay - well, they're just afraid. I am glad you aren't. You are actually very brave. It takes courage to go against the grain.

thanks for the encouragement my soy familia. i thought would be wrong to create such thread but looking for way out. i've been wanted to stop long ago.....the turnout was heavier drinking which in turned to drugs and crap. though i've cut off alot drinking remains a prob. my mother says it's hereditary because my father and grandfather were heavy drinkers. i say it's a bunch of b/s. but just looking out for myself...i don't want cirrhosis, alzheimers disease, and hepatitis which can be caused by heavy drinking.

i will keep posting on progress and fuck ups. Who needs AA...i have soy
