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.

How many pints of cum have you drank since quitting alcohol? If you say less than 50 I know you’re lying.

My liquor of choice is vodka, and when I’m drunk I love the feeling. But it isn’t worth the sickness I sometimes feel the next day, and definitely not the emptiness and sadness I experience when I’m coming down off of it. Vodka is a depressant and I feel like I’m stuck on this rollercoaster of highs and lows. Today is day 1 of no alcohol for me. Wish me luck please

I quit drinking six months ago and will never go back! Your story of sobriety is refreshing and mirrors my own experience. Looking back on how much time and opportunity I’ve wasted to alcohol is enough to keep me sober from here on out! Kudos to you for telling the world in such a great way, I hope this vid will lead others into a life of less substance abuse and more self control and more happiness!

I drink when I watch movies or documentaries....it helps me store more information weirdly ...but it becomes addictive for sure and triggers my call for bad food .....hence going slow soon :)

Just had 2 gin and tonic and a bourbon with a little ice. It is so good. Good luck to you quitters though. If you can't function properly with alcohol it's smart to let it go.

Somebody once told me the Irish would have ruled the world because they had some of the greatest philosophers mathematicians and engineers. That all changed when when one of their countrymen invented whiskey.

Carlos Martin (16 days ago)
I was hospitalized for two weeks with pancreatitis and ketoacidosis..worst pain I’ve ever felt. It’s been almost 15 months since I’ve had anything to drink. Life isn’t perfect, the things I was running from are still there but I’m able to actually face them. I never thought I could be happy without alcohol, and let me tell you that’s a huge lie you tell yourself. Life gets exponentially better, good luck fellas.

Funny thing is that I see many of those benefits after just a few days of non-drinking. That's why I know everything he says is real. But the siren calls. I do like my drink.
Irish Guy (18 days ago)
I've been trying to stop on and off for awhile now. Unfortunately, I drank way to much last night and have a huge hangover headache today. I wish I could remember how bad I hurt today and use this feeling to stop for good. I'm going to try video taping myself with this hangover and watch it everytime I have the urge to drink. Hopefully this will help!

Alcohol free all my life of 37 years. Even when i was in tokyo with all the money one needs. Thanks to my drunk and mumbling and falling all over the place father sometime. He taught me a lesson without saying anything.

Vanessa Buzeta (23 days ago)
Thank you for sharing your journey. I feel like men have it worse when it comes to healing and recovery, especially with alcohol. I hate to say it but our society encourages men to drink to excess to drown out emotions and problems. I am almost seven months sober and every story I hear of people living a happy, alcohol free life proves to me that I can live my life without this addiction. Thank you for being brave and sharing.
Tristan (24 days ago)
Man you got the same story as me. I used to drink in excess and dipped a lot as a teen from around 16 and im 22 now and have not had a drink since January 1st until today on my sisters birthday. I regret it but at the same time I think its not such a big deal as it was a very special occasion that being it was my little sister's 21st birthday. Thanks for the positive video man definitely think of this video a lot. Especially because I ran into it almost 9 months ago and it was the first video I thought of when I took my first sip tonight

Good luck, you can do this xxx
Trevor Jameson (23 days ago)
Good luck to you! I hope you can stay off of it. Depending on how much, how often, and how long you have been drinking, it can take several months for the withdrawal symptoms to go away. Things such as panic attacks, heart palpitations, and general anxiety are the usual symptoms. Those will eventually go away. In the end, you will feel a whole lot better. It's best to never drink again, not even small amounts. It's a great idea to also stop caffeine completely also, if your aim is to feel as good as possible and be able to sleep properly.

This video helped me decide to quit last year and I quit for about 10 months or so, but I started up again. It's inspired me to quit again, but I need to watch this every month. It's a great reminder of why.
