Default see alcohol thread in womens only section

Hi Ashley,
You might look at an older thread concerning alcohol consumption and dieting. You may have to go to page 2 to find it, but there were a lot of very thoughtful posts about the ins and outs and the difficulty in giving it up for many of us who were used to 2 or 3 drinks a night. The general consensus is that while not very many of us were willing to give it up altogether, most of us had cut way back and reserved alcohol consumption for either special occassions, dining out, or a weekend indulgence.

As with many things, if you can find something to substitute the activities surrounding vodka, such as not going to happy hours (not that you necessarily do) or not sitting in front of the TV for hours with a glass in your hand (again, not that you do), then you are likely to be more successful.

At 22, now is a great time to start establishing those GOOD habits that will last a lifetime.

Hey Ashley,
My advice to you would be cut back to a MAXIMUM of 2 drinks, and go from there. Slowly ween yourself from it. If you quit cold turkey you will find it very difficult to keep that up. Not only that, mix your vodka with a low/no calorie mixer like sugar free cran, diet coke, or soda water with lime.

Good luck!
