My new year's resolution is to quit drinking. Not permanently but for a good long while at least until the summer. How do I avoid the urge on a friday night after work to buy a 6 pack, or go out with my coworkers to a bar if they suggest it?

    How pathetic are you? Why can't you have 2-3 drinks every other week on social occasions?

    The idea that there are so many weak willed alcoholics who drink by themselves every night drinking piss water beer is insane to me. What's the appeal? Why not just do drugs to numb yourself or take a sleeping pill and sleep 14 hours a day

      I'm not an alcoholic I'm just trying to lose weight. I could go the route of just vodka and sparkling water but I'd rather just quit entirely for a little while to make cutting easier.

        Hanging out with friends is 100 times more important for you than cutting to 10% instead of to 12%, believe me. Do not miss this shit because of "muh cut", you will regret it later on.

    Replace habits when you end them. If your coworkers are going out and you find validity in joining them, share the first round then club soda until you're ready to leave. If you're used to drinking alone at home, fill your hands and your glass with something else. Change up your routines, cook more or develop a new facet of a hobby you enjoy. For me, it always helps to remind myself "no ever regretted not drinking, but it's almost certain I will regret this next drink." If you have a religion, consider praying on it. You can do it, anon, and you'll be glad you did.

    Make your goal short term, say like a month. Then reevaluate from there. It’ll help quell the normies when you say you’re doing dry January. As an off and on drinker myself the social aspect is the hardest part, but only at first

    Unfortunately for me this current bout of sobriety is likely to last a lifetime, I simply cannot achieve my goals going on week long benders

    Good luck

    I have one trick I use for resisting vices. I visualize. Let's say I'm at home, I have no plans for the night, and I want to drink a bottle of wine. In my head I walk to the store, I pick out the bottle, I go through the check out, I walk home, I open the bottle and take the first sip. It's never as satisfying as I want it to be, and I'm still dealing with the same angst I was before. Usually after I think it through I don't really want it anymore and can focus on more healthy coping mechanisms like reading or some other soothing thing. I'm sober until my birthday in march, got started a few weeks ago. Good luck!

    And just drink club soda with lime at the bar. No one's judging you.

      Thanks, I never really thought about that. I'll try that with candy and jerking off, my worst habits today.

      But how do you convince yourself it won't be that satisfying?

        You seek vices over and over because you want to escape your uncomfortable state. It doesn't work. I have a lot of memories of it not working that I draw upon. I can perfectly recall feeling sick after eating a pint of ice cream I never really wanted, or puking up whiskey in the shower, or tasting the first cig in the pack and regretting buying it.

        Sit in your feelings best you can and then try to figure out what your body wants. Water. Sleep. Healthy food. You need to know those cheap highs aren't good enough for you.

          Also for candy specifically, do like a 48 hour fast and try to eat healthy after that. Your guts are fricked up and addicted to bullshit.

      Sounds similar to the "play it forward" strategy I've heard.

    Avoiding the 6pack should be easy, just get something else to drink and keep the rest of your unwind routine the same.
    I've done a couple of dry months on and off and the bar is the hardest part.
    Non-alcoholic beer got me a few snide comments, but people get used to it.
    You can give a medical excuse if that's within character for you (got some new meds just being careful with side effects), but of course not all the time.
    Taste is fine, but diet wise still not great.
    And I cut my bar nights short because drunk people are annoying when you are sober, even if they are your friends.

    Starting with half a year as a goal sounds ambitious, but it may be easier to keep one long streak than starting again, idk.

      My goal is abs for the summer so obviously cutting out alcohol completely would greatly help me. Plus I dont like drinking during the winter post holiday season it just feels depressing.

      Once I have abs in warm weather I fully intend to frick around and have a lot of good times.

      by having something better to do. find hobbies/goals that keep you busy so you wont fall for the bottled israelite. also its completely ok to go out with frens/coworkers, just get non-alc drinks as a bunch of other anons suggested.
      godspeed anon

      I don't remember it clearly but I thought the emotional aspect of it felt forced, there's no real weight and motives behind what happens throughout the movie and it really seems that everybody liked it because it resonates with the modern tendency to romanticize the depressing aspect of substance abuse,as if it makes you more deep as an individual. I feel like most people equate the iconic ending with the whole movie, when in reality its 100 minutes of masturbatory turmoil followed by a bizarre juxtaposition of a musical dance number.

      Take it or leave it, I like being a hater anyway.
