“I only drink on weekends,” you’ve heard yourself say one too many times.
Then you recall the past two occasions when you met friends for “a” drink, and ended
up having ten.
If drinking has become an unhealthy habit, causing you to resemble Mike Tyson after his
ear-chewing moment, rather than a giggly drunk just passing time with her friends, then it’s
time to cut yourself off.
Drink water and juice instead of booze when you go out.
Everybody wants to fit in socially, and drinking is a big part of that scene.
You can still “drink” with your friends.
Offer to be the designated driver, or tell them you need to get up really early.
Lie if you have to, but drink something besides an alcoholic beverage when you go out.
Alcohol consumption inhibits your absorption of B-vitamins.
These vitamins are responsible for just about every function in your body, but also combat
anxiety and depression.

Mitigate side effects of a detoxing liver when you quit drinking.
No one wants to feel like crap when they are trying to make positive change in their lives,
but if you’ve been drinking for some time, stopping can cause detox symptoms as your
liver, gallbladder, kidneys and other organs get rid of alcohol’s toxic byproducts.
You can help lessen these symptoms by drinking plenty of water, taking bentonite clay, soaking
in Epson salt baths, and eating lots of detoxifying foods like cruciferous vegetables, celery,
garlic, onions, and cherry juice.
