6 challenges I'm facing from quitting alcohol - seven months sober

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

Going sober for 7 months (235 days) comes with a lot of great benefits for myself including: Less anxiety, more energy, less brain fog, lower blood pressure, more productivity, more money and better social skills.

Despite all the positive benefits, I want to share some of the cons, the negatives, that I've personally experienced. I'm human, and life brings not only good times but bad times.

These are my experiences, others may or may not relate but it’s always nice to share these personal experiences.

In this video, I cover experiences ranging from anxiety to social life and low levels of dopamine.

Despite that alcohol is everywhere, just like sugar is damn near everything, However, Pros outweigh the Cons. I’m healthier. That’s more important to me.

I’d be lying if I didn't tell you that I had a lot of fun moments with alcohol but just from looking back in the 7 months of not drinking, I've had some great moments. Saw my best friend get married, went to Europe, got engaged, some of my content went viral and I reached personal and professional milestones. AND, I feel 8 times younger.

Hopefully this video was inspiring in some sort of way, I just wanted you all to know that I am human and my life isn’t perfect, so I have my good days and bad days.

I’m a huge fan of the saying that moderation is key. I think that works for me.

However, I understand that being sober is the best scenario for others and I don’t want to be insensitive to those who have no choice but to be sober. I understand that some people who have no choice may have a harder time finding joy in life while others who choose to be sober enjoy life more.

I also want to say I’m very proud of you. Yup, I”m proud of you for trying. Even if you did two days after drinking every day for 2 years. Yo, that’s two days you gave your body a break from alcohol. How about this – Let's say you did 2 months and you caved and had a drink. Okay – don’t let one day ruin your 60 day progress.

Alright friends. Let’s keep in touch. Til next time, I'll see you, when I see you!

Thanks for watching, or reading.
