Mello, can I have the prize now? Am sure it will help me drop weight. ;)

When you fall off just make sure you land on her!

Good luck with it, Darren. Some great reasons for giving up the grog, too!

I've done Dry July the past two years and by the end of the month, it really does get A LOT easier to say to yourself, "no, I don't really need the alcohol right now".

 

All the best :)

The relentless and blanket marketing of alcohol also makes it very difficult to quit or even lower the intake. This and fast/junk food are a marketer's dream and many people's nightmare.

The exquisite irony of a bourbon whiskey company playing a lead sponsorship role in motor sport is one such example.

Advertising has never influenced me, that I am aware of, haha.

@@bzr we used to be 'big fella's' but the young'uns stare down at me these days. Eating too much dead chook, the cheeky buggers.

Yes, I know it will get easier once the first few hurdles are crossed. A high one will be this coming Friday night, when I usually look forward to knocking off work and going to Dans. The week wont be an issue as I don't usually drink through the week.

What's the plan for Friday night now then mate ? What albums have you lined up for a back to back listening session?

Nup, I get up at 5am for the walk, home by 6;30, and at work by 8-8:30.

Tonight, I have some power cable experiments to do, as per the Aus cables thread. I must away!!

PS, not being a validation junkie, haha, but I have never had so many 'likes' for a thread. One only imagines that this issue I raise must strike a common chord amongst us Gen X's??

I refuse to encourage such behaviour!
It's unAustralian!

Darren, kudos for recognising the problem and taking the steps to address it. I'm also off the beer, and haven't had a drink since Dec 6th. Combined with better diet and regular (moderate) exercise I am currently 14kg's down in that timeframe (from 87kg -> 73kg). The first few weeks were tough, especially over xmas. I don't really 'do' tips but if anything try and find some alternate pursuits to keep the mind and body active to avoid temptation.
