    I go to a friends house every Monday and a group of us hang out, drink beer, watch sports, and play shuffleboard so that’s the only night of the week I drink now.

    My pen and gummy usage definitely spiked last year when I didn't drink for 5 weeks. Gonna try and do a better job of managing that this go-around.

    We were smoking nightly to help with sleep. Found some CBD gummies with minimal THC and they’ve replaced that. Relegated smoking and drinking to just weekends, if that.

    Made it through January. 8 lbs down (with exercise). Did not have reflux once and have been sleeping through the night. :feelsgoodman:

    Side note: the amount of questions I have gotten is annoying as hell. You aren’t drinking? Are you ever drinking again? Why not just drink liquor if you’re trying to lose weight? Just try light beer only if you’re having reflux issues.

    I have never asked questions when someone told me they aren’t drinking/don’t drink. I thought that was a general rule but apparently not.

    first... good for you and keep it up.

    Yes that shit sucks and I got that too. Plus all my friends were like “come on man, let’s go get a beer”. It’s like just respect what I’m trying to do and don’t try to guilt me into being unhealthy

    I cringe every time I was younger and didn't understand the stakes with all this and tried to chastise someone into drinking if they declined

    will be starting the whole 30 over in March and attempt to do the w
    I've had people get somewhat upset with me about it like i'm personally avoiding them. I've just told them if that's all they want to do, then they need to go find another hobby.

    First whole 30 was way more difficult. I've done it 3 times and it really has not been difficult the second 2 times.

    and i can concur. Not having an upset stomach and being able to sleep more than 4-5 hours a night is absolutely amazing.

    I would almost understand it if I had stopped going out, but I’m still going to bars and out with friends.
    And I enjoy it (especially being able to remember more conversations).

    I don't enjoy going to bars when i'm not drinking... i'm also that guy who likes to be in bed by 930 every night so if i'm not drinking at a bar at that time, my ass is in bed. Including the weekends. Going out to eat and to events is fine, but just sitting in a bar sober with a bunch of drunk people blows...

    Don’t do whole 30 unless you hate yourself and want to hate life for 30 days. Biggest sham of a diet ever
