New to the forum and stumbled on this. It's encouraging to see guys realize drinking just drags you down. I've never known anyone better off from it.
That’s the whole thing, it just wasn’t adding anything positive to my life. Spending money, poor performance in my workouts, being dehydrated, etc.New to the forum and stumbled on this. It's encouraging to see guys realize drinking just drags you down. I've never known anyone better off from it.
100% getting off sugar is WAY harder than alcohol in my opinion. It’s easier to feel the negatives of alcohol as they’re So acute. Sugar is way more subtle.2 months and 2 days
I haven’t craved a drink in a month but damn if I haven’t been craving sugar. I’m like a crack head for cherry pepsi so apparently I traded vices, on the bright side it’s a lot easier to hold myself to two soda’s a week than it was to hold myself to two beers.

I've not dealt with it personally , it would make it harder . Stick to your guns , it can be done though .Love this thread I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time unfortunately its feels very difficult to get the wife on board and it becomes a rub in our relationship anyone dealt with this ?
I’m 9 years in. My wife still drinks but she does not have a drinking problem and rarely has more than a glass of wine or a couple beers. I fully support her having a drink. There are lots of folks who can have a few. I am not one of those people.Love this thread I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time unfortunately its feels very difficult to get the wife on board and it becomes a rub in our relationship anyone dealt with this ?
“Over time, GERD causes your esophagus to become inflamed, increasing your risk for a condition called Barrett’s esophagus, a known risk factor for esophageal cancer that affects the tissue of your esophagus. Barrett’s esophagus typically does not cause any symptoms beyond those associated with GERD and can therefore often goes undiagnosed”any amount of G.E.R.D. (Acid Reflux)... Your esophagus will thank you for stopping.
I can't really tolerate coffee anymore either. The caffeine has me geeking out big time. I can only handle about a half cup anymore. I've switched to teas and water in the morning now. I had the same problem with sugar. Candy, ice cream, soda... you name it I was into it BAD!! TONS of water and fresh fruit is what helped curb the cravings for me!Speaking of sugar. One thing I've noticed in the last 3 or months (related or not, I don't know) is that I can no longer drink coffee. It gives me the worst stomach pains. So I've been substituting my coffee with cups of tea (English guy, English tea. Milk, 2 sugars)
I used to take my coffee black with no sugar. In fact, until i quit coffee I hardly used processed sugar for any reason at all! Since i switched though, I'm CRAVING sweet like never before! I still hardly drink soda (maybe 1 a week, which is still about 50 a year more than I've ever drunk) but i cannot go more than a few days without ice cream!
I'm actually getting fatter since i quit drinking 3-5 bottles of whisky (+ beers) a week.
Any tips on giving up sugar?
