How to Quit Drinking Alcohol and Get Your Life Back
How to Quit Drinking Alcohol & Get Your Life Back
It’s all well and good me preaching about how I escaped alcoholism and telling you that you too should learn how to quit drinking alcohol. However, if you are anything like me, you want proof!
I understand that. Most people who end up at my website have tried (and failed) many time to moderate their drinking.
What they didn’t know at the time is that willpower has a 95% chance of failure when it comes to quitting drinking.
But don’t take my word for it… here is another Stop Drinking Expert review.
This time from Nicola J. (name changed):
Good day to you Mr. Beck!
I wanted to update you on my success as a nondrinker and also add a couple items I have found to be the case in my situation.
It has been almost 3 weeks since my last drink of poison. It feels so much longer but in a good way!
A fantastic way! I’ve only thought about “having” a drink a couple times and it was more like this is a situation I would normally drink in and it felt weird to NOT have a drink but I didn’t really want a drink, just wanted the weird sensation to go away.
I thought I would struggle with this need for a long time and I haven’t. I have been majorly blessed in many ways!
I wanted to add a few things to your list and here they are.
Since I quit drinking my husband and I have started to work on our problems.
One of those problems was intimacy.
When I was drinking we never had sex when I was sober. Now we are like teenagers again. We are having fun in the bedroom and I can remember all the details. We laugh more and act silly. We can make out and not have alcohol in the middle of us with me smelling and tasting like it.
Which brings me to another point. I can smell alcohol in even very small diluted amounts and it’s nauseating! I can only imagine what I smelled like to my husband!
The days are clear and my brain is smoother. I’m not jumbled up, having a headache and feeling crappy!
I, being sober and clean have more energy.
Since you taught me how to quit drinking alcohol, I can also express my thoughts clearer and not let my ego get in the way!
Meals are cheaper!
I have a desire to take care of my body, take my vitamins, eat healthy knowing the damage will be corrected. Before it was almost like why bother.
I knew I was going to add the poison and figured it was a waste of time to try to correct what I was feeding the machine.
When a situation comes up that I feel needs the alcohol I get a glass of ice and a coke. The cravings for crap food that I use to eat while drinking is gone also.
I have lost 20 pounds in the last month or so and fully expect to lose more!
That is a HUGE boost to my self-esteem and sex drive! My husband teases me and calls me a sexy MILF!
All of these things are a direct result of quitting the poison!
How amazing is that!!??!!
