I am not delusional to say, I’m not going to drink at all next year. That being said, I’m quitting drinking the way I have been. My drinking has never become a huge detriment to my life, but it has caused a lot of issues that I can do without.
Also I have an active enough life while sober that I realize I don’t need it. I’m 26 and this seems like the perfect age to say screw it, it’s just no longer something I want to deal with. My main motivation is finances. I’m making so much money now, but I want to use it for real life experiences; not just getting hazy. Lastly, I’ve been reading books and learning more about personal development; and it seems one thing a lot of people I respect do when the are first getting their crap together and attaining their goals is quit drinking.
I’ve made a lot of progress in life, alcohol is the last little anchor slowing my progress.
