* He is now a lean 53 pounds. Kobzoff, who lives in California, recently posted the photo above before-after at Reddit, claiming that a year without alcohol has made him 1000 times happier . The post exploded. We asked him how he was finally sober - and why his friends may or may not hate him now that he is "in good health". Congratulations for losing your bowel, but why did you lose your beard? I was sad enough to see him go.
* Many of their friends and family have joined them in their temper now. So, I never saw a drunk adult in my childhood at my memory. I have never witnessed an excess of alcohol. I grew up in a sober house where the adults who were having fun were never tied to ice chips or red lipsticks on a glass of wine. My parents were young, they were filled with life, joy and hope. Who needed alcohol now? The first time I drank alcohol, I was about fourteen.
* Tell people what you are doing. Not only does this add a sense of responsibility to your goal, but it also suggests that if your friends intend to go out and be wasted, you probably are not interested.

The first 72 hours are the most painful part of the recovery.
* The rest of the Sabbath, giving him the first place and the traps that annoy me and mine. Thank you for expressing the difference by saying "yes to God" and walking in freedom.

I liked your message! I struggled with alcohol for twenty years.

Although some of these changes may be permanent, especially for those who abuse alcohol for a prolonged period, there is hope.

* Feel so raw and ready, but scared. Your words give me courage. I feel that I will never regret accepting God's invitation either. Thank you for that. It was beautiful, thoughtful and complete. I drink the way you describe your early marriage, my husband does not drink at all especially because, as I said, he has the palate of a child of five years and pre feast on soda and juice. But I noticed the frequency with which other women around my age with young children will joke about needing a glass of wine after a mom's day, employee, housewife, wife, etc., and I find myself just to do the conversation.

* I still share a drink from time to time with my family or friends on special occasions, but your message inspires me to go ahead and give up completely. I, too, feel amazing abstaining, I always have fun and I have lost all "need" or "desire" - a blessing that I do not take for granted. Thank you for sharing. I hope you will begin a revolution with your honesty. Hi, I just wanted to thank you for this post.
