Day 23!


Still doing pretty good 23 days in, but Iím feeling exceptionally tired today; as I post, itís just 4:30pm and Iím shot. Can someone share their experiences with that? I was a heavy beer drinker (avg 15 daily) for about 17 years until I stopped earlier this month.

Thanks,

Tom

Congrats on 23 days!

Tired is normal and pretty common. Watch those sugar levels!

Hey Tom, first few months I was wrecked by 4/5pm, used to come home from work and just crash!!

The body needs time to repair and heal, 17 years of drinking is going to take more than a few weeks to bounce back from, it's going to take time.

Don't fight it though, give your body what it needs, if it's an early night go with it and eventually you'll get your energy back!!

Hang in there!!

I am at about 60 days and I think it's up and down. But it beats a hangover any day!

I had a similar drinking career as you. Gonna a take a while. I'm at 2 months. Just take it easy man. That's the best advice I can give. Try to do what your body tells you eat and sleep whenever you need it.
