55 days today.
did two other stints this year, 63 days and 66.
hoping to break my record (of 66 days sober)
I've been drunk 14 times this year. (when i break my bouts of sobriety after 63, 66 etc i tend to go on the sauce a few times)
I'm hoping I'll eventually make it to 100 days sometime. that'll be a real achievement.
The longer you stay off it, the fresher your body and mind feel. Clearer, more in control of your thoughts. You see the world differently.
big change from years gone by where i was beering at least three times a week from the age of 18 to 23.
24 now and I dont get as much women or anything as I'm no longer the life and soul of the party (i often don't really go out anymore and if i do obviously i cant engage as well in all the ''drunken craic'')
nonetheless i wouldnt change anything. i gave it up for health and academic reasons, and also because I do a lot of gym training and it's not entirely conducive to that.
drink has a horrific hold over this country and most people are trapped under an ethanol filled fog. their lives revolve around alcohol and when the next night out on the lash is.
that's fair enough, but that's not how I want to live my life.
although the upshot is, whilst I used do a serious amount of drinking, I was never actually addicted to alcohol. My real vice is coca cola - drink at least three cans a day and the longest ive ever stayed off that is 19 days that was two years ago!! tried to stay off it recently and could only do a week!! so drink isn't the real demon I'll have you all know!!!!!!!!!!!
