My Struggles - Alcohol - and my plan.

Guys,

I have to confess, I'm a huge alcoholic and always have been, I've been sober in increments of 5 years and one other time for ten years. I recently reflected on how much I have been/was consuming. I'm completely through this time. I just can't do it anymore. I'll be honest - after this last time, I'm lucky to even be here right now.

I love you guys and promise to each of you, this is the new beginning to my life and I'm completely done with drinking.

Thanks for the ear. If anyone else is struggling. Please feel free to chime in if you wish.

Thanks for being my friend you guys

I've seen many a drug addict or alcoholic replace substance with exercise. It's not all you'll have to do, but it's a good place to start along with counseling and/or classes.
This is what happened to me the last six months.

not only booze , but coffee, soda, etc.

I'm just eating healthier overall, just no cravings for crap food.

I'm 57 and in the best shape of my life.

It's like smoking, it goes hand-in-hand with talking on the phone, driving a car, drinking a beer. When I finally quit smoking, chain smoker for 35 years, in 2006 my taste for drinking went away as well. Now I'll have a draft beer or two once a week, or mainly Sangria out of box once a week. I usually play music, concert videos to be exact, on Friday nights and that's when I have a drink. With a 75" TV and killer surround it's better than being at a real show. Otherwise, the other six days a week I don't even think about a drink. Big difference from when I was in my 30's and 40's.

I was going to watch "In Bruges" on Netflix today but decided I'm going to run over a pitbull while doing pushups on a motorcycle I'm steering with my tounge while doubling the speed limit.

Thank You Hog!

Aprpreciate it, point is ..with discipline you can achieve your goals. Many times my energy level was really low, but I still went to the gym.

You HAVE to trudge through to get to the other side.

SR is going to be fine, IMO.

I think it's YOU who needs to give Lewdog the pointers and training help. He's looking flabby and soft these days!

I think being a Daddy has given him a Dad body.

Great job on the fitness.
