I experienced extreme fatigue for about 6 months straight after I quit drinking. Went to the doc, did a bunch of tests, nothing abnormal.
The fog didn’t lift until month 7. I’m sorry if that scares the shit out of you, but don’t feel like there’s something wrong with you. It’s normal unfortunately.
I exercise regularly now, take herbal liver supplements, drink lots of water, get lots of sleep and I have more energy than I can ever remember having in my entire life. I still eat a lot of junk food, that’s my next vice to kick. BUT after the 6 months of feeling like a zombie and fighting the urge to drink it away, I can say the struggle was 100% worth it.
I’ve had a few opportunities when I could’ve gotten completely shitfaced and no one would’ve known but me- but I’m feeling so great that the risk of resetting back to zombie mode (all the other addiction stuff aside) has been enough to keep me sober.
Good luck friend!
