    Going to quit again

    Hi all.. Decided must quit again and this time wanna do it right. 11 weeks before including through Christmas and new year.

    I can't handle the hangovers anymore now, also was just drinking for the sake of it. I'm sure my liver is a little inflamed but can't be certain.

    Really feel like I want to do it this time.

    Aiming for final drinks on Sunday 11th July as there is a couple of things I want to do, including experiencing what it feels like to drink and examine the feeling. Actually think am I really enjoying this while I'm doing it,, really..

    Couple of birthday parties to attend and football to watch I shall look into myself.

    Finally I know someone I used to drink with quit on that date 2 years ago and it would be cool to have the same date.

    I think I can do this.

    Table to table and outside tent, "hey son, want some more,, top up.. Here's ice... Etc.. It's like the more alcohol the more fun there is. A few people were confessing they had a bad hangover from yesterday but uncke says,, c Mon best cure is more beer,, ah OK.

    Alcohol really is a party drug for some people... Can also tell these people love it at weekends or whenever they can...

    How on earth are we to save society 😭

    Agree Kev. Many folk are lost in the cycle of alleged fun times, where really, the fact is we are slowly poisoning ourselves to death, and worse, taking around 15-20 years off our life span.

    What can i do to save society? lol. Well, I can live my best life and lead quietly and humbly by example. I can't tell others how to live. take care bro.

    Re: Going to quit again

    already planning some great things to do when I quit. nice weather so can go walking for a lot longer. Can use money saved to take punts on stock market or buy more bonds or even a few extra lotto tickets.. The money was earmarked for a bar anyway.

    Won't be buying fizzy juice in the house as it's what I use for hangovers, only time I really drink fizzy juice is hangovers. Apart from that I only use it for occational treat or picnic.
    Coffee is much better for you.

    Re: Going to quit again

    I am glad that your setting up a date. This gives you a chance to prepare yourself. The first quit that I did that stuck was for 7 years and I used my 1st graduation from college (went for 2 degrees so had 2 graduations) party to say goodbye to Alcohol and it helped. I was going to do it again for this quit but I decided that I was done drinking sooner then what I was going to do.
    I quit drinking on March 8, 2020. Taking it One Day At A Time and no more taking my quit for granted.

    Also doing it for me. I got to stay sober for me.

    Just consecrate on today and do what you can to remain sober for today and worry about staying sober tomorrow, tomorrow.
