Drinking booze

My mom thinks I have a potty mouth with these absurd titles. Oh well, these posts aren’t for everyone.

I have cut down my alcohol intake over the last 3 months to just about ZERO. Did I mention I live in Las Vegas? When I go out for a night on the town, I don’t drink. I have no urge to drink any more at all. This is not as easy as it sounds and if you are a regular drinker like I was, you may discover that socializing without the BOOZE is a little tough. You go from being as slick as Clint Eastwood to sounding robotic like Rosie from The Jetsons – beep. boop. beep. bepp.

After a few weeks of going out without drinking, things began to become more normal. Your social faculties come back just like if you were drinking and you no longer feel weird about telling people you are water wasted.

Since I’ve stopped drinking, I have lost weight and feel much more healthy. I am a hundred times more productive at the office.

Since I stopped drinking, I don’t experience:

  • Hangovers.
  • Beer gut issues.
  • Beer farts.
  • Head pounding before i go to bed.
  • The need to eat fast food at 4 in the monring.
  • Saying stupid shit.
  • Doing stupid shit.
  • Drunk driving.
  • Waking up in random places.

This isn’t for everyone, but I’m just saying for me this turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made. There are a few other bad habits I need to kick.

My Current Drink of Choice:

Fresh Grapefruit Juice
