TheRedArchive needs help
With 700,000+ posts and 16,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 20-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.

Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained a lot of knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you, and I wish you all a successful 2021 and a good luck with achieving your goals and dreams!

FR: cutting out alcohol

I quit alcohol 4 months ago and I feel I'm just now back to my old/best self. I was drinking heavily 3 nights a week and I'm sure it drained my body of valuable nutrients.

Since quitting I've been taking vitamins and supplements and hitting the gym 3 sometime 4 days a week. It's taken me this long to feel like I'm back.

The other thing I've changed is not consuming caffeine past 11am to ensure quality sleep and recovery.

Just a warning to those that drink, cut that shit out. It's draining.

I quit drinking when I divorced my fat, whore ex wife. A bunch of half marathons, 3 marathons, and a few sprint tri's since, and I havent looked back. Maybe a beer every once in awhile, thats about it.

I quit for 2 months and my workouts were great and sleeping was better.

Good call. Bro science or not.

Quit Smoking in January.

Cut weed from daily to a couple a shared spliffs at the weekend, every second weekend. But I’m suspecting it’s affecting my frame. Since January.

Quit boozing a decade ago. Bar a couple of drinks once a year.

Have cut way back and feel much better no doubt. Quit smoking too. Still dip like a fucking maniac. 12% bf easy w no beer + intermittent fasting, and regular lifting. I love beer but just not enough to look and feel like shit.

Still dip like a fucking maniac.

My vice too. Try camel snus. It’s not exactly the same but it’s all I do now and I’ve cut way back, use to be over a tin a day, bit “healthier” as well in a faggy kind of way.

10 years ago I was drinking daily, smoking 30 a day of tobacco and weed, was taking pills every weekend and had a rather expensive cocaine habit.

I quit the drugs six years ago and gave up boozing apart from weekends. Then I quit drinking altogether last year.

Finally quit smoking in January.

I might go back to taking drugs, smoking and getting drunk coz I was getting laid a lot more when I did those things.

I'm an alcoholic, when I got sober and hit the gym, 40 pounds fell off me. It's hard to get fat if booze is off the menu.

[–]ArticulateSavage2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Well said, u/Iammrp2.

I don't have any scientific data to back this up, only a hunch, but I think alcohol makes you physically weaker. If I even have two beers the night before a workout my lifts suffer and I suffer.

Cutting back the booze from ?? drinks a week to two - four really improved my strength.

YMMV

You can take red wine, tequila and vodka from my cold dead hand.

Like anything. Moderation is key.

YMMV



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
