I made a decision after my visit to the doctor, that my liver had, had enough.
I used the same script every time I went out. "I'll have one and thats it" but lets be honest, is it ever just the one drink? After a while it was more of a habit than actually enjoying the experience. I was consuming more than body needed. Stomach cramps, dehydration, fatigue, nausea, I was experiencing the lot and my body was suffering.
I decided I was going to turn my life around, and I was going to do it 'One Day At A Time'!
If you plan to far in advanced you will fail...The great china wall started with one brick!
One Day At A Time!
I've always been very focused and believe I can do anything I put my mind too. So deciding to stop drinking alcohol, coffee & tea was relatively easy for me, as I was never going to let myself down. I swapped all three beverages for water, coke zero and drinks with sweetener.
Was I doing the right thing? perhaps not, especially the amount of sugar I was now consuming through those fizzy drinks, but like I said before, one step at a time.
I have to admit, cutting alcohol, coffee and tea out of my life has replenished my liver and kidney back to normal. My IBS has calmed and my bank account has grown...The biggest accomplishment has been the mindset behind my decision. Now I'm not saying I don't have to odd glass of red wine once in a while, but even Jesus did that.
It's now been 5 years since I made my decision and I've never looked back. Since deciding to embrace the Keto lifestyle just over 2 months ago, I've now quit all sweet drinks too. I don't crave sugar anymore and enjoy knowing I have beaten my inner glucose monster.
Start today and don't ever look back
