No more drunk texting, late night drives to Taco Bell, lost debit cards, or drunk college girls shouting in my ear. Ever since I quit drinking, I’ve lost weight, my skin has cleared up, and I’ve become obsessed with drinking water.
For months I’ve been receiving tons of positive feedback from friends and family. I’ve been told I appear more radiant than ever before. I’ve been asked what my secret is, and the answer is quite simple: I’m slowly eliminating toxic things from my life. Alcohol being one.
I no longer suffer through killer hangovers and I don’t spend any days sulking in bed!
I simply quit drinking because I was tired of feeling like shit. Mornings were always the worst. After a night out, I’d feel lazy as hell, uninspired and unwilling to get out of bed.
Whether we realize it or not, our bodies need the rest. Simply taking a break from something you enjoy is always an enlightening yet challenging experience. Plus it’s an excellent way to strengthen the mind and body!
Benefits of quitting:
- I only drink water
- Better sleep
- My skin is clearer and more vibrant ever
- I’ve saved more money
- Weight loss
- More productive, focused and organized
- More energetic
- Wake up early
- Healthy mind, body, and spirit~
After being in a relationship I also realized there’s no point. People usually drink to be social, meet new people, or get laid. Going out to the bar or club with your boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t something I consider fun. I rather go to the movies, Netflix & chill or go to a damn nature trail. There are other things I’d rather do with my time and money, then get drunk and feel like death the next day.
TBH, alcohol did more harm and no good. I realized it just wasn’t worth it anymore. Whenever I had a few too many drinks, I’d end up wasting money, embarrass myself in public, or did things id later regret.
Unfortunately, booze has been the cause of most of the problems in my life. It sucks it took me so long to realize it, but I’m glad I’ve come to my senses. I now see how toxic and poisonous it was to my mind and body. Now, I feel better than ever before.
