I’ve done dry January and a lot of weight melted off. I was already shooting to keep it going through to March. For super lean people (borderline Instagram models), do you still drink alcohol after your 20s? I remember a male stripper in Vegas told me he only drank a shot of vodka once a year 😂 and that was the extent of his drinking, but he looked great.

I think drinking is all about preference and moderation. I’ve managed to get pretty lean over the last year and I stopped drinking. However I think it’s key to note I stopped drinking because I didn’t enjoy it anymore, it was empty calories I’d rather eat, it bloated me for days and it negatively impacted my sleep.

Where to start. Sitting here contemplating life after a sixer and wondering why I keep getting to this place. I make my family scared of me and push my wife and kids farther away while I think everything is ok.I can stop drinking when I need to focus on work, but when things get out of control I just drink it away. Tired of this cycle but unsure where to turn, but I know if I continue down this path it won’t be good. I am a vet and think I have PTSD, but turn to the bottle when needed
