The other day a viewer asked Alpha how much he drinks which got him thinking about his journey of drinking alcohol. 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 introduced to alcohol when I was18, from then on I enjoyed it and it became my best companion for every occasion whether I'm sad or happy, . . .but on the journey I witness most of my college friends, my close friends, my elders in the community and my relatives who were slaved to alcohol passed away before their time, ,It was really sad and horrible seeing them gone before they could accomplish anything in this world. .
It was then that I gave it up and discovered that alcohol is not everything in this world, ,, I don't need alcohol to live or enjoy life. ..this world is so big that there are billion of positive things that can bring me happiness and satisfaction with life hundred of times more than what alcohol can offer. ... .I guess every person sent to this world has an important purpose in their own unique ways and not just to end up become an alcoholic. . .
best thing that happened was i stopped living on the street and the yellow left my skin
oh and the pain in my hip was a dead joint . got a new one .
drinking wasn't my best move in life
peace and love to all
Wait until you're older. You'll be begging for a drink. Stop the BS with skin products. The best skin product costs like $15 a for a 8-15 oz bottle. That being unprocessed sunflower oil. At a teaspoon a day the cost is appx 25 cents a day.
10 suprising things? Really? Those ten things surprised you? What's next surprising things when you drove places: Got there faster! Legs weren't as tired! ...Of course you go on do a video on drinking and abs...so guess that pride and skin and productivity and happiness is back to miserable senses.
Never drink a lot of alcohol, if you choose anything, in my opinion; it should be red wine, red wine is fermented in red grape skin, which is rich in resveratrol.
We do know resveratrol naturally boosts testosterone.
Tiny amounts of resveratrol is also found in blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, cocoa powder, dark chocolate and more. I grow and eat plenty of strawberries myself.
There’s a thin line between friends and drinking buddies. Friends that always want to include alcohol in get togethers are simply drinking buddies. Real friends will be there with you especially when there’s no alcohol involved because all they want is to be around you and cherish those moments. Get rid of drinking buddies because in reality they’re simply drinking away the pain. They’ll drink whether you’re there or not.
I've tried to quit a few times but couldn't go more than 5 days. Finally I discovered Naltrexone and the Sinclair method and I'm finally in control... Ask your doctor or find one who knows about this if you can't quit cold turkey!
I quit drinking and smoking after doing both for 35 years. I consider myself a problem drinker who would drink 6-8 beers 3-4 times a week. I’ve never tried quitting before so I was expecting to go through withdrawals with a strong urge to drink and smoke. I have not had one single urge so far, I am very surprised at how easy it’s been, I’m 24 days into it as of today. My face looks leaner, my blood pressure is down by 20 points (systolic) and I have more energy and a clear head. I have not socialized at all during this time and my concern is how I can continue this trend when I start hanging out with my friends again, whom all are social drinkers.
I'll never quit drinking. But more than a few years ago I quit drinking to drunkenness. The ability to display control is important. Enjoy a good craft beer or a glass of wine with dinner but never let yourself be seen as somebody that can't be trusted with alcohol. Women will see this display of control and you'll attract a better one.
God damn bro i 16 and i got this bottle of wiskey all to myself and i feel like im at this really important moment in my life like i either keep messing with drink cuz why not and ruin my life or just dump that shit right now
Thanks for the video. I don't drink everyday , only at weekends, but man, when I drink i drink too much, from Friday until Sunday :-( I just can't simply have a few beers. It's also a trigger then for me to take cocaine and other drugs. I black out many times, do stupid things, don't remember anything, I fall out with good friends. I feel so ill on Mondays and even Tuesdays. I feel that I certainly need to quit drinking, but my lifestyle revolves around it. There is nothing more relaxing than meeting up with friends on a Friday after work and having a few beers. I worry that cutting that out will get me depressed or anxious. I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. Feel free to comment .Thanks
Thanks Mark. Every Saturday or Sunday I am saying that that's it, enough is enough, but when it comes next Friday, I do it all again. I know, it's all a familiar story no doubt. I'm not on here looking for sympathy, but mainly to hear the people who are / were in the same boat and i'm trying to understand how life can be sober all the time. I'm guessing a massive percentage of people go on the booze at the weekends and potentially drink alot, but in my case I go too far and not afraid to admit that it's a problem. It doesn't affect my career in any way thankfully. I never drink during week days. How does the socializing aspect work out if not drinking alcohol. Do you still go to pubs to meet people, or completely avoid the places?
Brendan Townsend Brendan, you don’t have to live one more day like that. I am totally familiar with the deep, dark hole you’re in...but there is a way out! Millions of people around the world have surrendered to alcohol, and are living great lives. I am one of them. Nothing will change, however, without taking action. I sincerely wish you all the best!
i'm here at home, destroyed from last night, the weather is great and sunny outside, but i've no energy to do anything. If I wasn't drinking , I would be out living life. For me, the positives can only out-weigh the negatives in terms of giving it up. Fuck it
I drink from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep (If I feel like it that night) and am perfectly functional. In fact I drank a fifth of rum 10 minutes before typing this as well as 2 beers. Hell, I'd wager I have the nicest yard on the block as a matter of fact. I have had a rough past and it get's me through the day so why not drink alcohol in excess? I don't, nor would I ever want to live to see the same shit my grandparent's went through in a nursing home just wasting away on medication anyways.
Every human is their own king or queen and is in charge of their destiny and I'd rather do what brings me reprieve as well as pleasure rather than quit something due to societal pressure or norms and I couldn't care less what others think of me for it, be it more or less.
I'm 30 and have drank to the point of getting drunk nearly daily since hitting 21 and well before that (although not as regularly obviously) and own my own home, vehicle, and have my own business so the stigma towards alcoholics is rather skewed as far as I'm concerned. I do have high functioning autism supposedly so from what I've read... mental clarity is mostly unaffected for people such as me, but I still believe that the average person can drink regularly and still function more than adequately.
Then again I have smoked weed, tried ecstasy, as well as acid and an awful lot of opiates and out of those the only drug I noticed an effect for is weed believe it or not, and I have done each around others as well as alone with nobody being able to tell if I'm "using" other than with weed which seems to relax my nerves and make me happier more than alcohol ever could. Sadly I moved to a place where weed isn't legal and is hard to attain so I'm fucked in that regard so alcohol is a decent substitute.
Sorry for the pseudo-rant, I am just baffled by videos such as this honestly... the guy wasn't even what I'd call an alcoholic and I would know one when I see them. I needed a good laugh and this video supplied it so thank you for that anyways haha ;).
It's sad when you''ve already watched the majority of comedies on Netflix and must resort to Youtube to supply such fulfillment lol.
3 weeks sober today after drinking every weekend (and the rare weeknights) for the past 3 years. It really does make a difference. I'm having a couple of friends over today, and I've bought them alcohol. I'm not going to lie - I'm pretty tempted by it. But I'm more tempted to wake up bright and early tomorrow and come down to them destroyed and feeling like shit lol. I feel like I've actually accomplished something, yet along the way I've lost a few "friends" because I've realised how nasty drink can make them. I was never an aggressive drunk, and if I was, I would definitely have stopped drinking long before now. Stay strong everyone, it's worth the battle.
I put down the hard alcohol but did begin to drink wine almost daily and what notice was that I more social and not as sloppy or brain dead, and the lucky part is that you wouldn’t feel shitty the next day🙌🏻
What does the title say it's says I quit look it's your life but if youQuit that means you don't drink at all.Being an alcoholic my self I haven't had a drink since a day before thanksgiving 2014.I noticed all the changes like u did.Its my opinion that once you quit u shouldn't drink at all. I also think you drink more than u say and still smoke.Its a total oxymoron to evendrink at all your like all the rest of the so called social closet drinkers Who lie about having a oroblem.
You kinda sound like Jake Johnson and look Nico Tortorella. Good combo 😄 lol. But for real tho, I agree 100% with everyone you said here. I've lost 35 lbs after I quit drinking. I started to respect my body again, meditate, take yoga classes, read more, go to parties sober.. Was even the DD for the first time in my life lol. In the past, people knew not to even ask me to be the DD. Anyway, it gets so much easier with time being sober. And the benefits are far too many to even list.
I just want to put it out there for alcoholics watching this video: by no means is the idea that an alcoholic can return to "normal drinking" a reality. Fun video though. Just not something to follow for any sort of inspiration.
I never comment on anything as it is, but I wanted to say thank you. This video helped me be a better person and I have been sober since June. Not very long, but coming from drinking almost every night and getting blackout drunk, it has been the best decision of my life after a turbulent turn of events that affected me deeply recently. I just can’t describe how thankful I am to you and your open honesty. You have made such a difference in so many lives and definitely in mine. Just... thank you, Alpha!
Just smoke weed if you want a happier life i quit drinkn in 08 was a alcoholic myself you right you feel reenergize down da line hell even da next day libido pick up in men as well i drink only pure water keep kidneys flush blood flow circulation.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem with getting and maintaining an erection that’s firm enough to have sexual intercourse. All men have trouble getting an erection from time to time, and the likelihood of this problem increases with age. If it happens to you often, though, you may have ED.
Viagra is a prescription drug that can help men with erectile dysfunction. For many people, romance means candlelight, soft music, and a glass of wine. The little blue pill, Viagra, can be part of this picture, but only if you drink small or moderate amounts of alcohol.
