Running. Blows.

The end.
this is pretty much what I did...kinda.
6pack a day mon-thurs
12pack a day fri-sun

every day, from the time I was 22-23 years old. I'm 53 now.

last june I just decided to change. instead of getting home and popping one, I went home and walked. started w/a mile, then 2,3,etc. Monday thru Thursday I'd walk instead of drink. then, I started walking on weekends...don't know why, outside of the fact that I'm a creature of habit.

I'm up to 6miles (walk 4.75/run 1.25) 6days a week. no booze at all mon thru thurs. Fridays - my days...no walk, and i'll drink a few beers. sat and sun, maybe a couple.

but...I know that if I'd skip the walk, I'd want to crack a brew. just the way I am, I guess.

after about 9 months, I still hate walking/running. but the habit's been started and hopefully replaces what I was doing before.

good luck, and congrats and respect to sr and the others that have stated that they've been able to quit for as long as they have.

sec
