Why Do Hangovers Get Worse As We Age? – Stop Drinking Alcohol 65

On this weeks Stop Drinking Alcohol, I talk about why our hangovers tend to get worse as we get older. There are many reasons for this. Of course the primary reason is because we are still putting alcohol into our bodies. I am still aging, but I don’t get any hangovers because I don’t drink. I do get what I call food hangovers. This is where I spend a day or two eating shit food. Because I don’t have alcohol clouding my judgment, or poisoning my senses, I feel the difference between feeling good after eating healthy food and feeling bad after eating crap. There are many reasons why continued use of alcohol as you get older is going to result in hangovers that hit you a lot harder.

No More Excuses for Drinking Alcohol - It's a Killer Drug | SDA64

No More Excuses for Drinking Alcohol – It’s a Killer Drug | SDA64

Stop Drinking Alcohol 64 is all about not making any more excuses. There’s going to be a new section on the site where you can check out all the excuses that people make when they’re ‘trying’ to quit drinking. We all do it! I’m no exception. There’s always an excuse. For me, it mostly comes down to procrastination. My partner has just started working in a local coffee shop/bakery. It’s good for most of the week until Saturday. The cafe closes Sunday, so anything that’s left either gets thrown out or is available for the staff to take home. Saturday evening is one big excuse for me why I should eat this cake or that… pure torture! Nice torture, but torture nonetheless, haha…
Let me know your suggestions for videos! The more the merrier! Let’s give ourselves the kick up the arse we sometimes so richly deserve!

Can You Manage Your Alcohol Moderation? My Moderating Life | SDA63

Can You Manage Your Alcohol Moderation? My Moderating Life | SDA63

In Stop Drinking Alcohol 63, the topic is management of alcohol moderation. I tried to moderate my drinking for too many years, always slipping back into the same routine, time after time. It wasn’t until I finally came to realise that I drank solely to get drunk that things changed. I knew there was no such thing as long term moderation for me. For anyone with a taste for alcohol, for anyone who likes to get drunk, is there or can there ever be moderation? Also, why do we never hear about moderation management for other drugs?

Who Are Normal Alcohol Users and Responsible Alcohol Users? | SDA59

Who Are Normal Alcohol Users and Responsible Alcohol Users? | SDA59

On this weeks Stop Drinking Alcohol, I talk about the uses of the words normal and responsible to describe some alcohol users. Do you ever hear the same terms used when it comes to other drug users? Normal heroin users? Responsible heroin users? It’s just another way that our society is hiding it’s head under the sand. It must be one of the biggest deceptions around, and we do it to ourselves, that somehow either we’re not drug users when we drink, or that our drug of choice is ‘better’…!

How To Help Clean Your Liver After Quitting Drinking Alcohol? | SDA57

In this week’s Stop Drinking Alcohol, I talk about helping your liver to recover from the years of abuse while you’ve been using the alcohol drug. It’s not an easy thing to think about, that you might have caused damage to your vital life essential organs, but by regularly adding a toxic overload to your system, you’ve been contributing to an organ which is more than likely on the way to exhaustion. Once you’ve stopped taking the drug, it’s time to give your liver all the necessary tools it needs to keep you alive and functioning well into your old age. I also talk about some of the things I’m doing to help my liver recover!

Thinking About Drinking Alcohol and Our Alcoholic Society | SDA56

Thinking About Drinking Alcohol and Our Alcoholic Society | SDA56

In this week’s Stop Drinking Alcohol, I revisit one of the earlier posts, the Thursday Tally 3, where I talked about thinking about drinking, how it’s virtually impossible to not think about alcohol. Well, it’s everywhere, even today, everywhere I go I see alcoholic drinks. I just don’t give a damn any more. I see it like it is, a legal drug and everyone that drink alcohol is in effect a junkie to some degree or another. I think that understanding the deception is one of the most important things you can do, uncovering the bullshit.
