Inspired by rachelellogram’s ‘I quit smoking’ thread
I quit drinking 15 days ago. This is a personal challenge to go at least 30 days, though I hope to go longer or just keep it to beer after day 30. I am/was a fairly regular drinker, at least 3 beers with a shot per night. Weekends would be more.
Day one I had some shakes. That went away by day 3.
Week 1 I basically didn’t sleep, or would sleep in 2-3 hour increments. I’ve heard this is normal for those coming off alcohol. Days 7 and 8 I slept 7+ hours with aid of pharmaceuticals (legal prescription). I did not want to use drugs but they helped immensely and I am now more or less on a normal sleep schedule.
I’ve noticed clearer skin and eyes and I of course feel much better during the day.
What more can I expect? I know I can make the 30 days but am I naive to think I can stick to beer after that?
