It's time to turn off the alcohol and turn on the mocktails!

I wrote this back in 2016 when I decided to make the switch from drinking to teetotaling.  I never posted it as there wasn't really a place for that, but then recently I realized we had a place for a blog right here!

Here are my, at then, recently conceived thoughts about stopping alcohol.  It's been seven years and I still have the same feelings on the subject.

Making the switch from alcohol to non-alcoholic drinks has been one of the best decisions I have made for my overall well-being. As someone who has recently made the switch, I can attest to the numerous benefits that it has brought to my life and the best part is that non-alcoholic drinks taste great and can be very diverse.

One of the most significant benefits I have noticed is the improvement of my physical health. Consuming too much alcohol can lead to a number of health problems, including liver disease, cancer, and heart disease. As someone who used to drink regularly, I was aware of the potential harm it could cause to my body. But since switching to non-alcoholic drinks, I have noticed an improvement in my energy levels and overall physical health.

Another benefit that I have experienced is an improvement in my mental well-being. Alcohol is a depressant, and I used to find that it would worsen my symptoms of anxiety and depression. But since switching to non-alcoholic drinks, I have noticed a significant improvement in my mood and overall mental well-being.

Weight management is another area where I have seen positive change since switching to non-alcoholic drinks. Alcohol is high in calories and can contribute to weight gain, but since switching to non-alcoholic drinks, I have been able to maintain a healthy weight without feeling restricted.

Switching to non-alcoholic drinks has also improved my productivity. Alcohol can impair your judgement and ability to focus, which can negatively impact your work or school performance. But since switching to non-alcoholic drinks, I have noticed an improvement in my ability to focus and be more productive in my daily tasks.

Finally, switching to non-alcoholic drinks has also helped me save money. Alcohol can be expensive, and by switching to non-alcoholic drinks, I have been able to save money on my overall beverage costs.

In addition to all the benefits, one of the things I love about non-alcoholic drinks is the variety and taste. There are so many options available, from sparkling water, to mocktails, to non-alcoholic beer, and wine, and the taste is just as great as their alcoholic counterparts.

In conclusion, making the switch from alcohol to non-alcoholic drinks has been one of the best decisions I have made for my overall well-being. It has improved my physical and mental health, weight management, productivity, and financial well-being, and the best part is that non-alcoholic drinks taste great and can be very diverse. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a healthier lifestyle change.
