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.

You're lucky, I quit drinking entirely after drinking, a lot, for over 25 years and I can't tell any difference from before except for when I was hungover the morning after. I still wake up and feel like I have a hangover sometimes even though I'm completely dry and have been.

By far one of the best no judgmental videos of those realizing it's perhaps becoming a problem, is a problem or has been a problem. A lot of the videos on YouTube make you afraid.

I am 20 and in college. I’ve been told by both friends and strangers that I don’t know what I’m missing because I don’t drink. They tell me being drunk is fun, that it helps me make friends, that it makes me look cooler. Every time I see them drunk and being stupid I seriously wonder if they tell me that because they really think that or because they are trying to justify their addiction. I’ve seen so many bad things happen because of alcohol. Have yet to see something good happen because someone was drunk

Hey man quick question. I haven't had a drink in over a year now and yes I feel all the benefits etc and i'm exercising a hell of a lo more as I didn't work out at all when I was drinking but I have a fast metabolism and my body has never produced fat in my whole 30+ years. What worries me is working out with this high metabolism as I have no fat to burn off should I be concerned about the amount I exercise?

IF THE TABACO COMPANY GETS SUED FOR BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR SECOND HAND SMOKE THEN THE ALCOHOL COMPANIES SHOULD BE SUED FOR TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR ALL THE CAR ACCIDENTS BAR FIGHT DEATH. DRUNKS DRIVING KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE. DRUNKS GETYING KILLED BY ABUSIVE COPS AND DRUNKS GETTING KILLED BY AUTO MOBILES WHILE CROSSING THE STREET. FAMILY TRAUMAS DUE TO ABUSIVE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CAUSED BY THE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL. PEOPLE DEAD DUE TO CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER. AND EVEN CANCER ON WOMEN. I AM FOR SUING THE SHIT OUT OF THEM ALL VICTIMS IN THE WORLD NEED TO SUE THEM THEY NEED TO BE HELD LIABLE. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO REGULATE THIS ALCOHOL MORE THAN ANY OTHER DRUG AND MORE THAN GUNS SINCE THEY KILL WAY MORE PEOPLE YEARLY THAN WEAPONS AND DRUGS COMBINED.

Its AMAZING aint it bro, all 10 things you nailed. I had your drinking history and loved it from the first moment at about 12 but I became a FULL blown alcoholic for the last of these eight years, trying to stay sober periodically, and then in and out of the hospital the last 3 years. Ive got 10 mo sober and everything you said is exactly what starts happening evertime I quit. It is like being on drugs everyday, literally, I have to ask myself if Im acting normal sometimes, when you've put your system thru that hell and finally cleanse it out and start living your body and minds full potential. Alcohol is literally poisoning your body and your brain, (the drunkness and the hangovers and then the cravings) Im loving and living life like never before!! and man, the best is im getting the body and fitness that alcohol (even working out all my life) would never let me achieve.

I quit smoking back in 2012 at the age of 24 after I went into the hospital for a collapsed lung... Wasn't because of the smoking according to the doc it was because I was 6'1" 130lbs at the time... I quit smoking that night. Haven't lit up since... I'm now 175lbs, healthy, feel great daily. Smoking is absolutely disgusting to me. I have no goddamn idea how I ever did it! I just know now how I feel and that is pretty damn good!

Awesome video, and the reason I quit drinking is because when I'm at a party sometimes and I get way too drunk I would be rude to my friends or strangers...which doesn't turn out good in the end, but thank God I got out of a situation when there was going to be a fight, and my friends had to really escort me out pronto before anything got heated. I backed off, and I walked home from the Bar thinking...what did I say wrong to offend some people? Then the next morning my friends would tell me, and I would feel so shitty...like I literally felt like a shitty person for acting rude. So that's why I quit drinking because I want to always stay on point physically and mentally...great video man and the energy I have being sober is such a great feeling.

Your brain is supposed to be a light grey color, like when they do an autopsy. They can tell immediately if someone is a serious alcoholic because when they perform an autopsy on an alcoholic, instead of the healthy grey color, the brain is pink! It's pink because it literally has become pickled from the alcohol saturation. Interesting huh?

Usually when I feel the effects of alcohol poisoning going through my body and mind.. cause I'm a heavy drinker, I usually stop for a week.. then when I do? I go back to my healthy self.. I didn't truly understand these storys about people that were heavy drinkers and would get so angry.. but 2 days ago it felt like I was losing my mind, I was getting so angry about small things.. when I usually don't get angry about.. but I guess the alcohol was effecting the way I think. I'm usually a logical thinker, but I get bored.. and the boredom is killing me..

When you don’t drink hardly anymore , don’t go out no friends ! Get up earlier while everybody sleeping . After losing so many friends, found easier deal with grief
Clint the Audio Guy (16 days ago)
I drink every single day. But I've now limited myself to one, and I avoid the calories with mixers and such. Usually a whiskey on the rocks, a martini, or a light beer, occasionally a heavy craft beer. My next step is to cut down on days a week. My mission is abs. I'm 41 and I want to prove to everyone that I can have ripped abs again. All I hear is, "too old", "Slow metabolism", "Bad genes" and so on. Not the case at all, it's all diet and exercise. People with abs can rule the world, haha.

I stumbled on to this video just now. I lost my job a month ago and have been drinking like crazy since. My wife came home with a bottle of rum yesterday and I killed over half of it after drinking a 12 pack. I felt so bad today that I've decided to stop. I'm glad this was in my recommended feed.

Hey man, if you wanna preach about the great benefits of not drinking anymore and inspire people you should take down those lame videos of drinking whisky and such. You are a influence to many people old and young. There really is nothing classy about drinking and 0 healthy benefits. If your viewers health means anything to you and you don't want to negetivitly influence some, especially teenagers (kids) into thinking being a alpha involves drinking your so called (classy whisky drinking) remove those videos. Money isn't everything man. Be a good influence.

I'm a biochemical engineer, i drink daily. get trashed. I still get up every morning at 6am to go to work. I excel at my job and i am revered by my peers as an excellent employee. I can also solve a rubik's cube under 20 seconds. So tell me now, is alcohol a problem? NO! its not. its people and their weak mentality.

Oh heck, what a coincident he is handsome and charismatic. Preach brother (maybe for height) get real guys this is not an example of sobriety. (I was mean about his height to make myself feell better and also what? I just had to edit to put in one/ maybe multiple more points. 1) It is so hard. 2) You can and will beat this. 3)My number 2 is bullshit. 4) 3 is even more bullshit what works for you is a miracle and powerful. 5) I love you and wish you the best, I am scared to even though i do not know you i wish you the best.

I enjoyed drinking throughout my youth and I don’t think I would go back and change it, fun times were had. I stopped drinking when I started dating the love of my life, she’s straight edge and honestly didn’t care if I drank or smoked. After it barely got in the way of our relationship once, I quit cold turkey in a heartbeat. I have absolutely no regrets and some of my friends think I’m crazy, others support it. I’ve realized who my real friends are, being in your 20’s drinking really is at the top of the social chain and to be honest without drinking most of those people actually aren’t your friend. In retrospect, I’m extremely happy and proud of myself for not wanting it. I get offered all the time, on the day of 4 months sober I got a free bottle of tequila at work and I gave it away. Love is one of the most powerful things in the world, I don’t need to get drunk or high when love does all of that for me. 💙
