This week I talk about the problems associated with quitting alcohol and big business.
It’s a big problem
There’s so many shark companies out there who will be only too willing to take advantage of you when you’re trying to quit drinking, and your money at the same time – as much of that money as possible.
If you have a problem with drinking, so long as you know you have gone a couple of days without booze in the recent past, you should be good to go.
There are a few heavy drinkers who cannot quit this way. But they are normally the ones who drink for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a bottle as a nightcap. And, they do this day in and day out. They’re the ones who can’t stop. They’re the ones in danger. But they’re also in massive danger if they don’t stop!
If you’re worried at all, have a chat with your doctor.
Don’t listen to the bullshitters who will try and tell you that nobody should try to give up alcohol without medical intervention. I am living proof that you can quit on your own.
I drank up to 20 pints in one sitting. I drank most nights of the week – at least 4 to 8 pints, or a bottle or two of wine.
I hear it time and time again in the comments, on the forums, and with people I talk to… the big problem is not knowing when to stop. People start to notice things that they don’t like. They might be getting pains, they might be getting awkward conversations with those that love and care for them. They might be getting these types of conversations from their boss.
It’s almost always the same. Drinking is causing a problem.
Are you an alcoholic when drink is causing a problem?
It depends who you ask.
Does it matter what you label it?
Hell, no! You still have the problem no matter what you call it.
Try to quit. Just give it a go. What harm can it do.
I feel great, the best I’ve felt in a long time. I want to change more bad habits in my life. These are habits that I couldn’t change while I was drinking. I can do it all now.
So, that’s Stop Drinking Alcohol Week 28.
Thanks for visiting the site.
Until next time…
Onwards and Upwards!
