    I did it last year, and I hated life from days 5-10. I'm moreso doing it to reset my diet, get back into some good habits, and ease up on the booze for a while. I will probably strive for 95% compliance this time.

    Neighbor and I agreed to do this together. I've been fine so far. I just keep focusing on how much better I sleep and feel.

    Go over to the neighbor's house today and he's drinking a beer. He goes "I have to finish all the beer in the house before I start so I'm not tempted."

    Just finished off a bottle of wine that I opened yesterday to come down from a debauchery filled weekend in Scottsdale. I'll start tomorrow. I arrive in NOLA on 2/28 for a bachelor party, so won't exactly make it 'til the end of the month.

    Having done this last year and feeling no better, sleeping no better, and no weight change I will pass on this and enjoy my occasional drink or 3. Please respect my decision.

    I missed this thread on Saturday night, because I was drinking.

    Tag me in 2021.

    No way I’m going sober in February in a Leap Year.

    I'm over the flu, but have some residual head cold type symptoms causing a very low-level persistent headache. It feels a lot like a hangover does, but without the fun of drinking the night before. This has really helped with cravings because I'm still repulsed by the thought of drinking right now.

    what is your reasoning for taking a break? health? lifetsyle? just to see if you can do it?

    there isnt anything wrong with having a drink to celebrate imo

    My wife has lupus and she has kidney disease. I just decided that I need to try and be as healthy as I can so I’m there for my son in case something happens. Seriously considering giving it up altogether. it would kill me to get liver/kidney disease or cancer and it’s something I might have been able to prevent.

    My mom’s brother died from it. That’s it. He was an alcoholic though.
