Day #7 The Week that Changed my Life

No booze day #7

Been a great week. I feel like like I’ve taken on the world this week and won.

So if I can do it, me the guy that has drank every night more or less for the past 4 years, then anyone could do it.

I’m furiously writing stuff down. Ideas, articles, editorials. I’m researching discipline. I’m listening to war stories on the Jocko Podcast. Check that out that’s awesome stuff.

I recorded my first YouTube video today just giving out some ideas on how to get through the first week. You can find that at the bottom of the article. I’m looking to post one every week. Maybe switch it into a podcast at some point who knows. I’ve gone from from doing 4 podcasts to 0 podcasts in the space of two weeks so I’m getting real POD withdrawal.

I did a banana smoothie earlier in a Carling pint glass. How ironic. A great oxymoron if ever there was one.

I put the rest of yesterdays disaster smoothie on some pork and ate it cold. I rarely eat pork, but I made an exception.

I want everyone to get out of this phase that they must enjoy food. We’re not fucking five years old anymore. We can’t be turning stuff down based on flavour, texture, whether it’s green or mushy. If it’s good for you, get it the fuck down you and shut up.

Right one week down. I’m flying. If anyone wants to get in touch and let me know how they’re getting on with their alcohol consumption. Maybe talk about your relationship with alcohol, I’m all ears.

I’ll leave you with a fact and then after that the video of me talking for about ten minutes.

I’m also posting these to twitter as they don’t always make the homepage. So keep track of me there.


In addition to filtering blood, your kidneys do many other important jobs. One of these jobs is keeping the right amount of water in your body. Alcohol affects the ability of your kidneys to do this. When alcohol dehydrates (dries out) the body, the drying effect can affect the normal function of cells and organs, including the kidneys. –
