I recently reconnected with an old guy friend I hadn’t seen in about 20 years. He moved back to within 20 miles of me after living in Indiana for a long time. I had spoken in the phone to him once a year or so.
In the time I didn’t see him, he developed a 16 beers a day habit.
He is now in AA. It’s hard, but he’s been totally sober for about 60 days. I think about him a lot. It’s done so much damage to his life and his family’s life.
He drank about 3 beers a month when we were friends in the 90’s.
Right there with you. Just went from pounding Mountain Dew to work the 5 am to 10 pm + work day to unsweetened iced tea. Body already starting to look better, that should take things to the next level. I do see caffeine as something that has to stay to be at the level I need to be with this, but that way we get the energy without the extra calories. I like my vapes too. Got to be the 4% - good to be able to say that. Got no disprespect for smokers, that shit is real nice with t good alcohol buzz - my my old fart 43 year old lungs can't handle the level of tobacco buzz I need with my caffeine doing that with cigs.
Tron, did the same thing Friday night at the local brewery establishment. Knowledge alone on their craft beers got her a big TIP! Ended up by time we were leaving found out she was a manager who was filling in for shortage of servers! Off the Wagon Brewery had the BEST hand cut fries and geezer band was playing Steppenwolf, Cream, etc etc ..... TOP NOTCH too!
Guy on the left even kinda has that Ginger Baker look!
