He always enjoyed drinking from 16 y/o and onward. He binge drank but never thought he had a problem. Further, he never saw himself not drinking because it was ingrained in his social behavior and life. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro talks about how he quit drinking by accident. Alpha used to dip tobacco for 16 years. He was crazy addicted and ashamed. He decided to quit in 2010, and he knew he had to quit alcohol because it was a trigger to nicotine. He went from drinking 30 - 40 drinks a week to 10 drinks a year. He loves a bourbon every once in a while as well as wine at a nice dinner. He hasn't been drunk in a LONG time. Ultimately, he has a better respect for alcohol. The moment he stopped tobacco and alcohol everything has exponentially and astronomically changed. All of the sudden, all of the cloudiness dissipated, and it felt incredible! His life is 1,000xs better in every aspect. Changes for Alpha as a Result of Not Drinking 1. He stopped doing stupid things 2. He felt awesome every day when he woke up 3. His mind was so much clearer, and his senses were heightened 4. He became more creative due to not being clouded by a hang-over and not feeling good 5. His productivity sky-rocketed 6. He started making more money due to more focus & productivity (as well as not spending as much money as drinking is expensive!) 7. He looked better including his skin 8. Staying in shape was so much easier after quitting drinking (combine calories from alcohol with crappy food that typically goes along with drinking) 9. He was proud of himself rather than hating himself for being self-destructive 10. He is happier! All of the benefits to not drinking outweigh that beer / wine / bourbon. He wouldn't trade all the money in the world for all of this clarity and sobriety. It's remarkable.

I’ve been trying to stop drinking for almost two years. I’ve thrown up easily over 2,000 times. Been drinking six years and throw up about 1-2 times a day, skip some days.

after hard drinking for 30 years, I finally quit about a month ago. I am experiencing some strange side effects I never heard of. My facial hair started falling out, my voice is getting higher. But the worst part is my penis seems to be shrinking, and what looks like a vagina is forming under my testicles. I also find myself obsessively shopping for shoes constantly.

5 months without a drop of alcohol and I feel great. I was never even modest drinker... Even a few beers a week is bad, addictive. It makes people nervous, tired and negative. You can still get non-alcoholic beer :)

Hi Alpha Can u plz make a video about, is Red wine healthy? should we have it in every meal or just dinner or just lunch? Should we have it every day? should we go for the non-alcoholic one or the alcoholic one? how much is enough in a week? Mostly I have seen that bodybuilders take BCCA and they cannot sleep at night due to that. So they have two red wines with their dinner and they are just made to sleep bcz of all that comfort of red wine. They are making it a habit and sticking with it bcz it helps digestion and all! But I wanna ask u and have ur take on this? Please take this request and let us know if drinking wine is a healthier way of living then we are far away already! Plus plz include a message for people like me who are trying to get sober! so for sober people also include a plan if for bodybuilding wine is good option to have antioxidants. Ur big fan Alpha! I hope u take my request! Thanks :)

I felt the same clarity after smoking weed everyday (was for chronic back, neck and shoulder pain). Now that Ive healed, i feel so good, and am so productive in everything that I do! The mental clarity is absolutely AWESOME. With that being said, im probably gonna go back to smoking once or twice a week. Life is good!

First 2:40 minutes of barking and aggressive gestures are characteristic of a DRY DRUNK. Also the high level of self absorption which the subject admits to as 'vanity'. This is how people behave when they have quit drinking without dealing with the underlying issues. They are not easy to be around. Friends and loved ones sometimes wish they would go back to drinking.

Thanks for your story Aaron, and yes I would say the same thing for me. Since I’ve stopped drinking I’ve been feeling a whole lot better about myself in every aspect of my life. There’s a saying, If you gotta consume alcohol to have fun in life, then your doing it wrong.

What i wonder about alcoholics r they speak,they make promises and the next day they forget everything and they repeat the same. it becomes their routine of life. But they keep on going like nothing has happend. But i am fully aware about what is going on even when i am drunk. I see lot of acting and fake characters. Actually it is not them but the alcohol goes inside us changing our chemistry and we become depend on that. Because of this dependency i have even attended job interviews after i am drunk. But nowadays i am fully awake even after drunk, i think i am not suitable for this anymore. I will reply on this comment after 30 days of no alcohol. Thanks.

I was sober for 2 year's than my brother moved in and mainly it became social and now trying to give up but my husband is a drinker and hardest thing ever, so far been sober one month after I threw up on my driveway in the snow and fell asleep by a tree 🌳 😜 that's when reality hit me hard, I grew up with drugs and alcoholic parents and don't want that for my kiddos that's main reason enough to give up.

I quit Smoking cigs, weed, and alcohol on the same day and have not touched it since, that was 5 years ago. The keys was, I was at rock bottom and ready. To me cold turkey was the only way to go. I also got back into weight lifting and a healthy food and supplement regime. It is never to late to get another chance at life, God Bless

I am 60 years old, every one in my family that quit drinking ALL got sick and died within 10 of quiting. I have friends that quit drinking and they are sick or dead now. There is a lot of bacterial crap in our water and food now,, alcohol kills that stuff. Back in the middle ages people drink beer and wine because the water was not safe to drink,, we have a situation like that today in our country. IMO, boys, drink in moderation, know what your limit is and stop there. A little bit is good for you, to much can be bad. Self-control is the answer my young friends.

The longest i stopped drinking alcohol was 1 month and a half i would always drink between 2 to 6 almost every day. I slowed down cause i don't drink everyday but i know i would be better off without drinking. I know i could make this happen.
Rusty Rogers (16 days ago)
Alpha says that when he quit alcohol he "perceived things differently, and felt like he was on drugs." Can anyone tell me how long it takes for your head to clear in this way after quitting alcohol? I have been a month sober and I still have a foggy head. I'm waiting for my perception can finally come back to normal.
Rusty Rogers (6 days ago)
Yeah this seems like a good place to start. Thanks very much for your consideration!

May be you are still waiting for the better result. You may have not started a new activity to forget the absence of alcohol. You can get in to fitness or do yoga. I heard some say that endorphins are released in your body when you do workout which gives some sort of pleasure. Ever heard a term runners high? some find feeling of getting high while running. There is even a scientific research that says there is a cannabis receptors in our brain so the spiritual leaders says that it could be activated through meditation. i can keep going on. But my point is there are other ways to get pleasure. Just my opinion. Thanks,

Just finished 3 months after going over 18 years. The last 4 years of which I drank every night. It hit me one night at 3am, while I was 12 beers in at home alone. I needed to stop or I would die. I already was always bloated and tired. My work was suffering and I had no desire to do anything but drink and sleep. I was battling depression and thought beer would help. I quit the next day and haven’t looked back. I feel great and have lost almost 40 pounds. My whole mentality changed and I’m noticing how much more positive I’m becoming. The only down side is I lost all my friends. Apparently I’m not fun to hang out with anymore. But I’ll deal with that over being depressed and killing myself slowly. One day at a time..

Daniel Tapia (22 days ago)
I've had a similar experience as well. I'm 5'6 160lb with a muscular body type and I started drinking around 15-16 years old (which at the time was only the weekends) since it was economically harder to get it (alcohol) then. Once I started working I drank every day after work including weekends, while still working out and eating relatively healthy. I didn't realize how much I was drinking until I saw a documentary on alcohol and its effects on the body, apparently it stated that heavy drinking was considered 4 drinks a day or 14 per week. This shocked me because I was drinking, on average about 80oz a day (every day) consistently for about 8 years. (I'm 28 now) My daily routine was stopping by the gas station after work and getting either 2x40oz or 1x12-pack and drinking it all. I recently stopped cold turkey after I started getting sharp needle like paints under my right rib, which I assumed was my liver, Even after I stopped I felt a "heavyness" or non-painful but noticeable dull ache for about a month and a half. This scared me into quitting, I still have severe urges to drink but I restrain myself considering it would probably lead to death.

You were drinking too much. It was good idea to leave it altogether. Moderate drinking is not an issue.
Alaskanomaly (27 days ago)
If I had not stopped drinking and smoking cigarettes I would be long dead by now. I like your story. Many things I can relate to. You were a heavy drinker and you clearly outlined some of the negative consequences of your drinking. However, you stopped before you crossed that threshold of no return. You never became an alcoholic and that is a good thing. The reason I say this is now you can enjoy a drink or two a few times a year with no negative consequences. If an alcoholic has one drink it creates a powerful compulsion to continue drinking. Then the alcoholic is off and running again. There is something called "controlled alcoholic drinking" when the alcoholic can limit his alcohol consumption through shear will-power, but that doesn't work for long. If you can have a drink and not experience a powerful compulsion to continue drinking then congratulations, you're not an alcoholic and good for you. The best thing an alcoholic can do for himself or herself is to not drink, every day, no matter what. Obviously, this is simply my point of view.
