  • Heavy Drinking and PB

    Any drinkers out there? Reading quite a few posts out there and everyone is a saint.
    Any PBer's out there who like to drink? I enjoy a beer or a glass of wine when i get home from work. Another glass of wine while cooking the steak on the barbecue. Then I exercise for 1 hour then finally at the end of the evening 2 more glasses of wine every single day of the year

      I don't drink myself but for completely different reasons but I see a lot of people on here who use there 20% in alcohol. Check out this thread I was reading earlier. This should make you feel quite at home!

          hell yeah
          I have switched from white/champers to red, to honour PB
          I have cut down a lot and gone thru periods of abstinence, but that's just not realistic in the silly season
          My intention is to go alcohol free for at least a month in the new year

            I don't consider myself a heavy drinker but I probably drink more than a lot of people who post on here (at least one drink 3-4 days/week). I ran out of red wine last week so it's been a few days though lol... need to get some more.

                I like a drink and cutting it down has been much harder for me than giving up croissants and jam. A couple glasses minimum had been my nightly habit for a very long time, now I make sure to have a couple days each week with no booze, and others with just one drink only. Honestly the only thing that I wonder about with whole30 is giving up the drink, the rest of it sounds like nothing at this point.
                If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                  Same thing here, but I am only a few days away from getting done with it, I mean hell it's only 30 days of doing *as someone on Bane's journal said* willpower deadlifts.
                  My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

                    I have cut back, a lot. Used to be a few beers or gin and tonic after work, most days of the week. Now it is one night a week, or less, that I'll have a drink. Usually beer and (gasp!!!) a cigar. I have stopped doing a lot of things in my new lifestyle but the occasional beer and cigar is just something I enjoy too much to give up. I got to have a couple of vices left.

                      I have tried too develop a glass of wine a day habit because I think it is ultimately a good thing but absent a social situation I have no inclination to drink. Beer or a glass of scotch when out with friends, absolutely.

                        Never drank much, currently not drinking at all, it's actually very easy for me NOT to drink in social settings like a bar, my friends are used to that, it's hard not to drink when say I'm invited over for movie and there's wine. I like wine a lot more than beer, but I don't want to drink wine at a bar I feel that's ... pretentious as hell. I'd rather have gin on the rocks or something like that.

                          Drinking has been the most difficult (and last) change for me while adopting a primal lifestyle. I am still working on it and am planning a sober month in January. The grains, beans, and sugars were the easy part! My husband drinks a lot too, so we tend to be co-enablers unfortunately.

                            I've gotten to the point where I just hate to feel sub-optimal...and more than a glass of wine definitely leaves me meh/blech/ick/ugh in the morning - even with a big meal. If I could be fully functional after drinking heavily...well, that's a whole 'nother problem IMO. So, for me it's just not worth it. I probably have a glass of red wine once a month with a nice dinner out.

                              Alcohol is my entire 20%. Kicking sugar, bread, dairy, heck even coffee were comparatively easy.
                              I'm a big fan of scotches and martinis. I'm trying to still be a fan while showing up at fewer home games.
