The objective of this initiative is simple – to help men who have problems with alcohol to abstain from drinking, in order to live happier, healthier and wealthier lives. They’ll be happier not only because of their improved health and financial positions, but also because alcohol is a depressant of the central nervous system.
It can be helpful to record your progress over time, to provide you with tangible evidence of your improved happiness, health and wealth. So we’ve created a diary (click to download) for you to record your thoughts at the end of each day, or the morning after. If you have relapses, it may help you better understand what your “triggers” are, and help you develop better coping strategies.
Everyone who gives up alcohol will save money by doing so. Most people will experience health benefits including weight loss and lower blood pressure. You can monitor your progress in these areas with this spreadsheet (click to download).
Drinkers with a physical dependency on alcohol are strongly urged to seek the advice of their doctor before reducing or stopping consumption. For such drinkers, the consequences of reducing or stopping drinking alcohol without professional medical support can be damaging and potentially fatal.
