I am not really sure where to post this, so will start here and see how it goes In October I decided that would be a good time to try giving up PMO again, having not really thought about it much the previous couple of years. After a couple of failed attempts I tried again in November, but also decided to give up drinking for the month, maybe longer. An idea I have toyed with, on and off, for quite some time. (I do not feel like I have a drink problem at all. Just to clarify) I also realised that this would help with giving up PMO, as coming home drunk or waking up feeling rubbish and lazy are prime weak points with regards to that. Normally I get a really good boost to my energy levels. It did not happen in May, when I last tried it after a winter of excess. This time it has been really good. Sometimes a little challenging in social situations. Getting used to having a soft drink, or nothing, can be a little odd, but I am loving the alertness and sharpness that comes with it! I did fail at 'No Nut November', but now I am on a bit of a roll. Not drinking has definitely helped on the willpower front. (Wow, the willpower needs to be strong!) That means it took about 10 days of not drinking before it had any effect on my P use. Obviously there are other factors involved. I am not a heavy drinker by any means, but I do like the odd glass of wine, and beers with friends. I used to really like getting drunk. It is fun! Maybe was. I don't really like it as much any more, plus the day after is getting bad. Then there is the low energy levels for a good 2 or 3 days. Perhaps it is because I am getting older. More sensitive perhaps. Anyway! I was wondering what other people's experiences are with alcohol in general. Anyone here given it up for long amounts of time? Or found that they had to to go along with no PMO? What benefits, or negative experiences have you had as a result?
