Quitting drinking

Anyone here quit drinking alcohol? I've had a long love/hate relationship with alcohol. Went from beer to hard liquor and the last 15 years almost exclusively wine. Have been a heavy drinker for a long time but a few years ago have all but quit drinking completely. It's like I woke up one day and just felt, damn... I'm tired of drinking. So I cut way back and then for a year I drank nothing...then drank sporadically for a few months, then quit for another year and a half. Now, I literally only drink socially which turns out to be about one time a week when I go hang with friends.

I have to say I feel remarkably better. I've got to the point where I feel like total shit the day after drinks.

I did AA about 20 years ago, not for drinking as much as a drug I got hooked on and couldn't seem to quit. It's not a perfect program, but it's a good program that helps in every aspect of life. This go around, no AA needed. Just got sick of alcohol. Weird. But good.

I quit drinking 13 yrs ago, the first year I slipped twice and binged. I havenít had even a sip since and can honestly say itís the best decision Iíve ever made. Social settings are a little odd at first but feels normal after a while. It definitely will make you rethink some friends and vice versa.

I’m a loonatic alcoholic that ends up in jails and mental hospitals after having what was meant to be one drink. I’ve been sober 16 years. Life is good now.

I've always enjoyed drinking. I like the taste of whiskeys, scotch, some tequila's, some wines, and beer. My issue was years ago playing tag with demons and not talking with people who lived with the same/similar ones that I did. I would turn my phone off and disappear on my days off of work, hit the woods with some camping gear and alcohol. Maturity and knowing many things were out of my control and based on someone else's decision/actions got me through my heavy drinking. Still enjoy my alcohol but I may go days without a drink now.

My wife is an alcoholic. Almost cost us our marriage. almost 2 years sober and things could not be better. I still drink a few brews (which does not trigger her at all)

I always stop drinking for a month or two here and there. I do not get the benefits of feeling better because 1-2 brews in an evening does not make me feel bad. Although last night I watched 2 movies in a row on netflix and drank 4 beers so I do not feel great.

I have some alcohol just about every Friday and Saturday night. Friday it's usually 2 stiff drinks. Saturday it can be a little heavier. Saturday is sexytime with the wife and we like to have a few to set the mood and sometimes as the drinks pile up to 4-6 stiff ones it's freaksexytime. When I'm on cycle I try to limit drinking and it does effect me more on cycle if/when I use it. I like Italian and Argentinian wines, British Bitters and stout, and rum and vodka. So on average I have 4-5 drinks at the week end. They can be a bit stiff or just beer. I definitely feel better when I abstain.

Like Darkness, I had to give it up. I have a dark, ugly side and booze fuels it.

I have to say, anything really stupid that I ever did, I did when I was drunk.

Glyco, I know EXACTLY what you mean when you talk about drinking and sex. I LOVE that shit and me and the ex allways enjoyed getting our freak on that way. If I'm ever going to have trouble with drinking in the future, that is going to be the reason why. Matter of fact, I don't even know how to have sex without drinking first. Now that I'm single, not such a big deal. I do worry about the future tho.

Darkness and StC, that is some SERIOUS ass sober time you guys have racked up! I seriously admire that.

Jipped, you guys really dodged a bullet. Alcohol has ruined as many marriages as anything else. I know that was probably at the root of our breakup. She gets incoherent, rambling, stumbling blind drunk every... single... night. And mean and ugly as hell. Now me, I'm always a happy, laughing, blithering fool. Lol. Makes me happy you guys didn't go down the same road as my marriage!
