I have mentioned this before to you my lovely listeners, I wanted to quit drinking because I could not just do a little, I had to get really drunk every time I had a drink. I’m not here to judge people that can enjoy drinking moderately, I will I could do the same, have one glass of wine without the need to finish the bottle, but I can’t, I can’t lie to myself anymore, I can not do just a little drink. I been drunk and passing out every night for about 4 months, and last week was the tipping point for me. I was told but the bar staff I was going to every single night, that I was chatting up every single woman that came up to the bar, and one girl told me to literally f*** off, and the worst thing is; I don’t remember any of it, like most nights, I don’t remember how I get home, and most of the night. After listening to tells of what I did under the influence of drinking, something switch in my brain and I thought, ok enough is enough, I need to stop. Now as I recently stopped smoking, I knew will power will not be sufficient. I went to my Audible app and typed alcohol. Graig Beck - How Alcohol lie to me: https://www.amazon.com/Alcohol-Lied-Me-Stop-Drinking-ebook/dp/B009JY59LI One of the first book that got my attention was Alcohol lied to me by Graig Beck. As I already read book by Graig, I could trust him and bought the book. Within a couple of chapters I was cured, I knew I was done with alcohol, and I would not be going back to it, period. This may sound over simplicatique, but trust me as when I stopped smoking, it’s my own internal dialogue that had to change, and then the rest would follow. I can honestly say I am a changed man, maybe I was ready for change, but that book help me understand what alcohol was doing to me, and I could not find any benefits anymore, just like smoking a cigarette when I analyse both good and bad, and the logic is undeniable. Both have been hurting me, both physically and psychologically. They both had to go, simple. I have committed myself to train for Ironman 2020 in Vichy, and therefore now I’m going to get addicted to sports instead. Thank you for listening or reading.
