People are becoming more conscious about health these days. The number of social meetings has increased and with such social gatherings, comes eating and drinking. I have noticed that there are more and more discussions about health these days and everyone wants to lose weight to look good.
The problem is that many of us only discuss such things and never take action. Yes! I have been guilty of the same many times!
I am not a regular drinker, but I enjoy a couple of beers at social gatherings. I have always tried to avoid that first glass, but with friends and colleagues, you get to start with one.
While I love drinking, I have never done it to get kicks. I like the taste of a cold beer on a warm day or a nice cognac in cold night, but honestly, I always hated it when I got those hangovers the next day.
Now, I have finally decided to quit drinking and have been successful for some time. I am not sure how long will this go on, but I am pretty confident that it should.
The major success of my “quit alcohol” regime has been replacement drinks. I never like getting high, but I always drank because of the taste a beer gave me. Now, I have found the best non alcoholic beer that taste like the alcoholic ones but contain little or no alcohol. This means I can enjoy a nice cold beer which tastes as good as any other beer but does not make me tipsy or give me any hangover. More importantly, I can safely drive back home after a party.
