Today, half of my motivation to stop drinking is so that my tolerance will go down, because I currently can't actually afford enough alcohol to get even tipsy anymore. FML

Keep it up and your motivation will go towards staying sober. You'll see the benefits soon enough! Good luck!

Maybe it's a sign you should stop drinking for a long while OP.

No he just has to go to Costco's or Bj's and buy in bulk.

you're a great help to op becoming sober...

It's not easy quitting but one morning you get tired of waking up feeling like shit every morning and you decide to stop... It's not easy but you start feeling a lot better after a few weeks... It's still really easy to slip though so you have to keep at it

Sorry, but from reading the fml I didn't get anything about op wanting to go cold turkey. What I did get out of it is op enjoys drinking and didn't have enough money to keep up with himself.

I believe in you OP! You can do it.

I believe in you too!

I 'll drink to that.

I'd bet that you would drink to a hangnail :)

A hangnail? Drinks for everyone!

That's what I was thinking too, maybe give your liver a break.

OP, any symptoms of withdrawal you may experience while trying to quit are well worth the financial, physical and emotional change quitting will bring. I speak from experience. No, there is nothing wrong with an occasional drink. But binge drinking and alcoholism is extremely dangerous and you will not regret quitting entirely if you have no self control when drinking.

Once you're away from it, you'll find that that half of your motivation is rapidly shrinking. You'll always want the drink, mind, but you'll realize that life can be better without it.

That's the bullshit people who have no clue come out with.

Maybe it's a sign

a sign to get a better job

You can do it OP :) Keep hanging in there

Even though you are starting out for that reason you might just like being sober in the end and keep up with it best of luck to you
