DRINKERS WANTED: Who wants to join me in going SOBER for 20 days?

On 1-1-2007, I resolved to give up drinking for 100 days. I lasted 55. I fell short of my goal of 100 but that was the longest I had gone without the devilís elixir in over 20 years. Still, in 55 days, I slept better, was less irritable, lost 10 pounds, had more energy, etc. etc.

Since starting back up I have gone back to my old pattern of a six-pack a day. I need to go on the wagon again to prove that I donít need to do this, but I don't have the time nor discipline right now to commit to an AA program. But Iím looking for people who are in a similar habit to do it with me, and I bet some of you will. To make it easier to participate, Iím setting an goal of 20 days.

Iím going to give up alcohol entirely from midnight Sunday, June 10 though Midnight Saturday June 30.

Iím looking for fellow Planeteers who want to do this with me.

Here are some things which would qualify youÖ

-- should be a regular drinker. This means you drink at least 2 (preferably more) drinks at least 5 days a week (preferably more)

PLUS/OR

-- When put in a situation where thereís alcohol. You ALWAYS partake, usually more heavily than the other people there.

-- You have a habit of drinking (i.e. every night after work or at dinner or after dinner, while on Chiefs Planet, etc.)

-- You find no reason to stop drinking, because you like it so much, and you ďcould stop any time, really, if you wanted to.Ē

Basically, Iíd like to have some other people to share experiences with while going through the same thing simultaneously. Iíll post the ***official*** thread on Sunday evening and we can post on it regularly and give each other support. And if you do fail or bail, be honest. This is going to be on the honor system, and is really about whether you can do it, and just to SEE what, if any effects it has on your body, life, sleep, relationships, social situations, etc.

Iím not doing this for any personal or professional reason other than I want someone else to share stories with and hear what other people go through at the same time.

You donít have to give it up forever, just 20 days. After that, itís up to you.

Any Takers?

Post here or PM me and weíll get it going on Sunday.

Not a problem for me... Married with 3 kids. I need a drink every now and then, but don't have the time.

Sounds like a cool idea. Unfortunately, I don't fit any of your criteria. Sorry. I'll probably do it anyway but won't notice.

That's my thinking. It's lake season... jetski time...Camping, boating, fishing... and beer.

Sell your crazy ideas elsewhere, witch doctor!

That's why only 20 days. It ends the Saturday night before the 4th of July at midnight. BEsides, drink a club soda or an O'Douls. That's my tactic, to replace the alkeehawl with a non-al drink. And not drink as many, of course.

Dude, that's part of the idea. When I gave it up in January, that included all the playoffs and the SuperBowl. (including our loss at Indy!)

I thought I'd never make it. But after the fact I barely missed being buzzed during those games.

I already did this leading up to summer. I didn't drink a beer since St.Patty's day, just vodka and rum, and I lost 25lb's.

The beer drinking started on Memorial day weekend, and now it's like a runaway locomotive!

I went out to my brother's cabin on the lake and found him sitting outside drinking a non-alcoholic beer. I confiscated his man card.

10 days....maybe. 20 days...that sounds like a lot of days. I certainly fit your criteria though.
