How Did You Quit Smoking And Drinking Completely

by | Stop Drinking Alcohol | 0 comments

Today, the question is: How did you quit smoking and drinking completely? There is no magic technique or secret method behind stopping doing either of these things. Regardless of which ‘method’ you choose, there is always going to be one single common denominator – you have to stop putting it in your mouth.

Today, the question is: How did you quit smoking and drinking completely?

With both of them, I just stopped. There’s a lot of caveats to this. When I stopped drinking, it was after just a spell with my son. He’d moved over to Spain and my son was coming over to visit in Ireland; he was in his early twenties at the time.

We were just going out drinking, when he was over – not all the time – but it was celebration mode that we were in and of course as a drinker, celebration mode is, always, involves alcohol. So, this is what we were doing. We were going out drinking.

Towards the end of his third vacation over here, it was around Christmas time, I decided that this wasn’t the way I wanted to spend my time with him. So, how was I going to get out of this? I had already been thinking about moderation, so it was just really – I knew that moderation was no good for me. I knew that I had to stop. I knew that I had to be a better role model for him.

Now, I had quit five years previous to that, so about ten years ago. I quit because I got stopped. I got a DUI and I wanted to prove to myself that I could do a year. So, it was never an attempt to actually quit permanently; it was just an attempt to get off the alcohol for a small amount of time, for that year and that was it – go back and get control of myself again, you know. Bullshit!

I lasted ten months and went back on, just at the beginning of November. So, I stopped in January, went back in the beginning of November – because it was my brother’s wedding and I was the Best Man. I started drinking at half past seven in the morning, when we got the flight from Shannon Airport in Ireland to Birmingham in England, and had three pints before I got onto the plane and then… it didn’t stop then.
