Well I just hit my first week of no alcohol. I’m 30 and for the past 10 years or so I’ve had a problem with drinking while gaming online with friends. I used to never think it was a big deal until around 26 when I realized I was drinking to excess probably 5 times out of the week every week but really only at night while I played games.
I knew this was a problem because I couldn’t quit doing it. Last year I went 3 months without drinking which I felt was quite the accomplishment but sure enough i slowly started doing it again.
Anyways, lately l’ve toned it way down to just a couple drinks a few days a week but last Saturday night I went way too hard and felt like I was about to go down the rabbit hole again. Thought it would be a good idea to take a break, probably not forever but at least go back to a long period of being sober minded.
I think about alcohol more often now and have to stop myself from going down that thought process of convincing myself to have a whiskey or beer when I play cod or madden with the boys.
