4 Perks To Taking Time Off Of Drinking

Many people have heard their friends talking about taking time off of drinking or going on a cleanse from alcohol and substances.  You may have rolled your eyes and thought to yourself, “Yea right! No beer? Forget about it.”  However, you might be willing to consider taking a break from your beloved cold ones if you really knew about all of the benefits.

Besides the most obvious improvement to your overall safety like avoiding getting into car accidents or other injuries due to being inebriated, there are a lot of other perks to quitting drinking for a period of time.

You’ll Save Money

When you go out drinking usually you will spend an average of six dollars a drink.  This will quickly start to add up and before you know it you’ve spent at least fifty bucks on a night out on the town, although usually more when you factor in your cab ride home.

When you are under the influence of alcohol you tend to be more inclined to spend money freely.  Although it feels like the right thing to do in the moment, this behavior is usually followed by feelings of guilt the next day as you wonder why you spent all this money and have nothing left to show for it but a headache.

You’ll Lose Weight

Alcoholic drinks have a considerable amount of calories when you add them up to a total consumed throughout the night.

Beer, in particular, isn’t just full of calories but also a considerable amount of carbs and yeast which can make you bloat.  Cutting alcohol on your diet can remove thousands of extra calories from your weekly consumption.

Most people who drink regularly find that cutting drinking out of their diets result in at least 5-pound weight loss in just the first month.

In addition to consuming fewer calories from the drinks, you’ll also be less inclined to hit up fast food joints which is common after a night of drinking.

You’ll Sleep Better

Alcohol may make you fall asleep faster, however when drunk, the body never actually goes into a deep sleep.  This REM state is crucial to waking up after a night’s rest and feeling rejuvenated and back to normal again.

Therefore, when you stop drinking you’ll find that you wake up the next day feeling rested and good about your day.  Rather than groggy and wondering how you could have slept so long yet feel like you hardly slept at all.

You’ll Have Better Clarity

Drinking makes us do things that we may regret, and also can lead to being overly emotional.  By eliminating alcohol from your life you will find that you have more clarity overall and question your behavior less.
