Quit Drinking For a Month – Week 1 Update

by Bryn Youngblut on November 7, 2011

At the start of this month I started a challenge to not have a single drink for a month.

Today is day 7 and everything is going great.

Some observations I have noticed:

  • My energy level is up a bit, however I find myself getting tired faster at night which usually leads to me having a coffee
  • I seem to always need to have some sort of a drink, whether it be water, coffee, ginger-ale or cranberry juice (maybe I should get checked out for diabetes)
  • The first few days it felt very annoying not having a glass of red wine with my dinner, however I don’t really think about it anymore
  • My stomach feels much better, some days it would hurt or feel gassy

That’s pretty much it for now.

Happy making monies!

Nice work.. after reading your post, I decided to try to stop for the month too… I havent stopped 100%, but man do I feel better, especially in the mornings. I find myself drinking more sugarry type drinks too which seems to help me stop drinking for the day

Good job, dude.
I’ve tried being sober before for months. It’s hard. But nothing tastes better as a cold beer you haven’t had in a long time (=

WPBounce has a good point. That first beer on a hot day after a month off is going to be mind blowing!!
