Soft Drinks. In particular Coke No Sugar. Haven't had one in 18 months. Down from two a day. I'm also thinking about taking at least 12 months off alcohol as well.
I listened to a pretty compelling conversation about this yesterday. Some English broker who looked himself in the mirror and didn't like the booze hound he saw, established a thing called One Year No Beer.
Sets out a convincing case for drying out.
I've done it on three separate occassions in the past. I tend to get to the point where I just get over the whole thing. The longest I've gone was close to 2 years.
Wow, that's a solid stretch. I've probably managed a month or two at the most, but even then with cheeky single beers thrown in from time to time. And that's from age 17 onwards.
What brought you to make the call, and did you experience all of the health benefits people talk about? Mental clarity, better sleep, more energy weight loss etc
