how to stop being alcoholic?
i tried didn't work
Find god join AA
drink water and green juices and utilize a dry sauna extensively
Replace it with OJ, soda and low fat milk.
Increase fruit and rice in your diet.
Part of the craving for alcohol is the carbohydrate it provides, so just give your body better sources of nutrition to improve your mental health.
All of this helps, but you'll have to grab your balls and just go for it. Good luck brother.
Forgot to mention, start taking lifting seriously. You'll very soon understand that alcohol makes you feel like shit when you gotta train and it will give you one more reason to quit
I second this. Out every single suggestion I got everywhere it was only when I actually tried to lift heavier and train harder that I decided to quit drinking daily. Now I allow myself 1 day / month of drinking to blackout and no more.
What worked for me OP is I would go to my job during the day, and in the evening I work out at the gym until exhaustion. I'd go home and be too tired to drink. Repeat every day.
thanks for the tips brahs. i seriously think i need AA. i got back into ISTness for the first time in years but still couldn't shake the habit of drinking every night. just wanted to know if anyone ever beat this demon without admitting defeat and going to AA
Never considered AA as giving up, more like admiting a need for humility.
I'm the first guy you replied, my mother cut it off and replaced with zero calorie soda. She was in a pretty bad state, she would 1.5L of wine every single night before going to bed. Now she's at a point that even if my brother and I visit there she won't have a problem watching us drink a couple beers, but she won't join in.
I'm the one who suggested going hard at the gym. In my situation AA wasn't even an option as there was nothing anyone could say to me that would snap me out of it. I even went on prescribed medication and it only slowed me down a bit. What I stated earlier is the only method that worked for me, and I'm still sober almost 2 years later.
It's not admitting defeat to find other people dealing with the same issues. Even if it's not AA, find some kind of sobriety group so you're around other people who know what you're going through.
I quit a daily drinking habit almost 7 months ago. I had to make an effort to stop several times before it finally stuck. Reached a point that it just wasn't giving me anything anymore and I was miserable.
I do a lot of research into symptoms people experience when they go off alcohol to remind myself that the things I experience are normal and will pass. Keep up a lot of exercise to help your brain and make yourself tired, get good nutrition and take supplements like magnesium, zinc and vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 a few times a day helped me a lot, alcohol depletes it. I'd also highly recommend starting a daily mindfulness meditation habit.
Going to AA wouldn't be defeat, you should do whatever works for you and whatever you need. But instead, I've browsed a lot of forums and such online where people are going through the same stuff. I know everyone here hates Reddit, but the Stopdrinking sub is a terrific community.
You have the will to stop, you'll get there, man.
Will also back stopdrinking
If AA helps, it helps man. Thats the thing that matters.
i was just making a dumb thread while i was drunk. i know, for me personally, the only answer is AA, but i don't think i can ever stop buzzing. i'm honestly thinking about blowing my head off soon. i used to be a ISTizen many moon ago (2014-2017) but fell off. i was just wondering if anyone found the magic answer ...
Drink more, you must accelerate
do regular leg days and don't drink the same day you've worked out your legs
Cut a finger off every time you drink
Sleeping pills, doing the same myself, a bit up and down but as long as my sleepy time pills put me to bed I'm good on the sauce
T. Nearly a 26er of vodka a night before
Say "Fuck you, Alcohol!" and beat it up.
Also supplement with vitamin B like picrel while you're abstaining so your body can handle withdrawl better and you don't just go crawling back because you feel so shit.
Stopped drinking everyday a couple months ago. Managed a year straight and even got some lucid dream withdrawal shit.
I cannot get laid with being drunk and generally don't even talk to people
If I get drunk at a bar I can generally talk mid too young 20 year old women into having sex with me at 38
Figure this won't last since I'm getting older and don't know what to do but drinking gets old to be dependent on
If you wanna continue jestermaxxing then start doing daygame in the street. Set up simple dates for a quick snack or coffee and then just get them on a drive. It doesn't necessarily make the best setup for hookups like alcohol does, but I've had no problem getting girls horny enough to fuck without drinking
>Goes without saying to be fit, smell/be groomed/be dressed well
The problem is me being a pussy sober but when drinking having good game and not caring. Idk what my deal is. At bars I'll just go and sit next to them and talk.
Liquid courage. You were man enough to stop your addiction, is it really that hard to talk to retarded sloots, since that's what you want to do?
Move to a monastery far away from all troubles and booze
Stop hanging out with other alcoholics
Find things to do
Sugar can help in the initial stages to offset cravings
Become okay with an early death, lift the hardest you can
Identify what you are running away from and face it head on.
