Today want to do one of the questions that you guys have put onto the comments box.
This one comes from L0kic8 and is “How long does the tiredness last?”
So first off I’ll just read the comment:
“How long for you did the tiredness last for days after drinking??? I’m wrecked tired all week. I know if I stay sober long enough my body will eventually rid itself of the poison and I’ll get my energy to do more things. You vids are really helping me. Thank you”
First of all, congratulations on making the decision to stop drinking!
It’s a big commitment but the decision to quit is going to be well worth it.
And thanks for leaving the comment on the post by the way.
How long does the tiredness last is going to depend on who you are, no two people are the same…
Everyone goes through different experiences when they quit drinking.
I didn’t know what to expect this time.
I thought that I’d be losing sleep, I thought that I’d be tired because five years ago I went through the process, I gave up for eleven months, and that was what happened for the first month.
I couldn’t sleep, I felt tired, I had to go out and do a manual job then… it was physical labor… I was in the forestry, so…
For the first month I really did feel tired.
This time, I don’t know, I felt exhilarated… I felt on top of things.
And maybe I just felt some of my youth coming back.
And I realized this time that I was never going to go back on it… the last time I knew that it was only for eleven months… and I was setting myself a target to stay off the alcohol…
Actually, when I first stopped I only set myself a target for three months, and then I decided to do a year.
Then my brother said that he was getting married so the year was shortened down to eleven months, and I thought I’d go back on the drink when I go to his wedding.
But this time when I quit, I really felt like I was young again.
I felt invigorated with things.
I wanted to do so much.
I started going out, and I got a running app for my phone, I started running a minute on a minute off, that kind of thing…
I joined yoga.
After a month, the tiredness kicked in… I felt exhausted.
It was my body telling me, look, you’re not a kid any more; I don’t care if you’re stopping drinking, and you can’t cope with this.
Badness Coming Back Out
I also had a lot of weight to lose…
I had seventy pound, easily… to get to the ideal weight that I wanna be.
I’ve lost 30…
But by losing all that weight, it’s releasing all the toxins from the cellulite in your body.
Your body hasn’t got the option of trapping the toxins into the fat anymore, so it has to deal with it… it has to release them in some way, and when it’s releasing them it’s diverting resources that it would otherwise give you to keep yourself going.
And that’s with my personal experience.
Like I say, it’s gonna be different for everyone.
Treat Your Body Well
My best advice for you is to just relax, try and eat good food.
Don’t be eating crap food because it’s not going to do your body any good.
You know, there’s a lot of people who say well just substitute the alcohol and eat chocolate and that kind of thing… drink whatever coke you want… you know, eat whatever you want…
And I don’t believe that…
You should start as you mean to go on.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t have a treat or anything like that.
Treat your body well…
Drink plenty of water…
Try and get as much rest as you can…
Even if you’re not falling asleep, just the fact that you’re going to bed… and relax… and try and do some breathing exercises or something to calm yourself down.
If you really worry about it, go down to your doctor.
They are going to be the best person to speak to, you know, just have a chat with them…
And they’ll certainly put your mind at rest either way…
