Why I Stopped Drinking Alcohol

It’s been 120 days since I had my last alcoholic drink. Why though? I’ll explain in a bit. Time to stand in awe for the following screenshot…

Wow, I have an Android!

It’s pretty easy not to drink. Well, easy.. until you go to a pub with your beer-drinking friends. Suddenly, you’re not one of the herd. You’re an outsider. A freak.

That’s excellent! Stepping out of the comfort zone is something I want to do more often anyway. Not easy though. Not easy.

Anyway, what reasons I could possibly have to ditch that sweet intoxicating liquid?

It can’t be just because of expanding your comfort zone, Roman, right? Right?!!!

Yeah, it’s just that.

That’s all.

Thanks for reading until the end of this article.

Just kidding.

I stopped drinking mainly because I want to shred a bit of fat. I just have too much of it. It’s not healthy to be overweight. Frankly, I’m a chicken, scared of the negative effects caused by my spare tire. Mostly, diabetes. I don’t want it. I just don’t.

My entire teenage years and early adulthood there was always this desire to get ripped and to look awesome. “One day” I kept telling myself. I could say I’ve waited for this for 12 years and I wouldn’t be lying.

I’m fed up. I did enough of waiting. Time is now.

What the hell does alcohol have to do with it, Roman?! Just exercise and eat properly and you gonna loose weight in no time!

Noticed the part “eat properly”?

Noticed the part “just” just before the “exercise”?

Noticed the part “loose weight in no time”?

I don’t eat properly when I drink. It’s just impossible to command my drunken self to stay away from sweet and delicious.

I’m unable to get myself to exercise when I’m hangover. I just don’t have the energy or willpower the day after.

Furthermore, drinking messes up my sleeping schedule. I can’t sleep right after (even moderate) drinking.

There are calories in alcohol. I have enough calories within me already and I don’t need anymore of those.

In addition, alcohol slows down metabolism and prevents from burning fat:

By interfering with testosterone production, alcohol indirectly causes the body to lower its metabolic rate (and thus the rate at which it uses energy) and directly prohibits testosterone from exerting its powerful fat-burning effects.

As you can see alcohol consumption is just not compatible with the way I’m going.

So long!
