Good for you. And thanks for your service!

Come here to vent or be frustrated. PM coming.


I "quit" drinking several months ago and it's been wonderful!! I've lost count on how long it's been (purposefully), but close to 6 months. I found if I kept a count of how long drinking was still something in the front of my mind like it always had been. After about 30days you lose that urge and realize you are more productive without it.

I also lost a bunch of weight which I contribute heavily to the useless beer calories.

and the biggest benefit is to my family (wife and son) and friends. I'm a much better person without it. I'll still have a beer or a glass of wine in a (legitimately!) social gathering, but none in excess.
