This video, How to Have Fun without Drinking, is all about alcohol and “fun” from the perspective of somebody who hasn’t taken a drop of alcohol in five years, and those five years having being the best five years of that person’s life…
One of the biggest myths about quitting drinking alcohol is that you’re suddenly not going to have any fun… That’s it, all the fun is done and dusted! For the rest of your life, you are going to live in misery! You are of course a teetotaller now, which means boring, unloved, stale, tedious, uninteresting, dry, BLAH!!!
As I said, this is a myth, and a scandalous one at that.
Most drinkers don’t know how to have fun without alcohol. That’s not because the alcohol brings lots of fun, it’s because the drinker is so used to using alcohol at any occasion. I used to drink at the drop of a hat, any excuse would do!
Any time for celebration is a time for alcohol. Any time for relaxation is also a time for alcohol. Any time for partying is also a time for alcohol. The list goes on and on and on!
Once you refuse to put another drop of alcohol into your system, you are forced to rethink “fun” and reinvent your life. Once you do this, you suddenly realise how much you have been missing all along.
I got a comment the other day on the AM website from a person who typifies this brainwashed attitude towards alcohol and “fun”…
“You all sound like you will outlive the sun and the stars. Living a couple of years more than someone who drinks alcohol and be proud of it, seems to me that you are kidding your selves. Honestly I prefer not to live those extra years if they are going to be like that.”
“It’s not a question of living a longer life, it’s a question of living a better quality life. I was dying at 46 until I stopped drinking, now I have done more in the five years since I stopped drinking than I had in the previous 25 years. I feel younger, fitter, healthier, and have much more brain power. The problem with being a drinker is you can’t see the danger because you are stuck in the middle of it, you don’t know anything else, and you’re being led around like a sheep by the brainwashing of the alcohol industry. Sorry to lay it out for you, but it is you who is kidding yourself. Remember: quality of life first, then quantity. And by the way, I think I am going to live a longer life as well. You get out what you put in. Put poison in and you don’t need me to tell you what you’re going to get out.”
I’ve had more fun in the last five years, more intelligent, enjoyable, entertaining, lively, living fun than I have had since I was a child. One of the things that you have to do when you quit drinking is to put on your adults trousers, you have to grow up and be responsible for your own actions…
Ironically enough, it’s when you grow up and take responsibility for your actions that you truly take your mind back to the enchanting fun and delightful cheerfulness that we threw down the toilet as soon as we started taking this pointless poison!
Start living your life by first booting this poison from your body.
Until next time…
Onwards and Upwards!
