2 drinks a night, 4 times a week. more than my usual 4 drinks a month. i’ve been telling myself i’ll cut back to normal when i have no urges to smoke. actually the whole drinking thing started when i bought a box of wine for the 4th of july. i thought having a few drinks would relax me while loud fireworks were being set off. and now im drinking more frequently. i think in the future i won’t drink at all except on rare occasions, and i would also like to cut out the caffeine, i guess it’s just one thing at a time for now. i have no urge to drink today anyhow.
What are you drinking? 2 glasses of wine a day is beneficial to our health.
i am mostly drinking wine and the occasional beer. i don’t drink liqour however my desire to reach for a drink to take the edge off has definitely increased since quitting cigarettes. and on days i don’t drink, i drink 4 or 5 cups of coffee. im also drinking a gallon of water everyday which seems to help, the always consuming something, to help occupy myself. and stay hydrated.
im trying to quit smoking.its bloody impossible.its worse than heroine.hahah
Nothing wrong with drinking responsibly. I think drinking occassionally makes me relax more.
I think the upper limit recommendation is 14 units per week for men as far as health is concerned. So 8 units is well within that limit. But if you are uncofmortable with it, then drink less I guess.
I haven’t had a drop of alcohol since 2003 and I haven’t had a cigarette since 2008, nor do I smoke weed anymore. I quit it all and I don’t miss it (anymore).
I started smoking again when I was drinking. I’ll get back on the wagon once I’m out. As far as drinking I occasionally indulge:
I can’t drink, I’m an idiot with alcohol. I don’t know how to pace myself or when to stop. I always get sick.
In all honesty that dont sound alot compared to what i used to neck. But its good that you recognise early on that it could be a potential problem.
Im not sure - but you might just be craving the sugar. Im always stocked up on bowls of boiled sweets.
so after 100 days without a smoke, i will give up the wine. and after 100 more days without a smoke and without wine, i will give up the caffeine haha. one at a time.
i am on day 16 of no smoking.
