The 7 Amazing Things You'll Experience if You Stop Drinking!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The 7 Amazing Things You'll Experience if You Stop Drinking!

Maybe your nightly glass of wine has turned into two or three. Or you're overdoing it on the beer and have the paunch to prove it. 

Whether you want to clean up your diet or you're trying to nip a potential issue in the bud, giving up alcohol can be tough—but the benefits make it worth the effort! 

Taking a break from drinking alcohol—even if it's just for a couple of weeks—is a good idea, especially if you're regularly consuming more than the recommended daily limit. That limit is generally defined as a drink a day for women, and two for men. Keep in mind though, never attempt to detox from alcohol on your own. Always consult your Psychiatrist before abruptly stopping alcohol.

Here's what you can expect to happen, both short- and long-term, if you give up alcohol: 

1. You'll sleep more soundly. Drinking before bed increases alpha wave patterns in the brain—a kind of cerebral activity that usually occurs when you're awake but resting. The result? Disrupted sleep. A review of 27 studies found, that while alcohol may help people fall asleep more quickly and deeply at first, it seriously meddles with sleep quality after the initial restful period. You may toss and turn a bit at first, but give up alcohol and the sleep you get will likely leave you feeling more refreshed and sharp the next day. The byproducts of better sleep: improved mood, concentration, and mental performance.  

2. You'll consume less at dinner. Alcohol is one of the biggest drivers of excess food intake. Alcohol is frequently paired with mostly fried and other junk food, which is extremely unhealthy.

3. You may feel new sugar cravings. Sugar boosts levels of the "reward" chemical dopamine, which fuels feelings of pleasure. Alcohol does the same thing. So it's very possible that when you give up one substance that causes happy-making chemicals to float around your brain, you'll be more likely to reach for the other. Don't be surprised if you try to get that same enjoyment or rush you used to get after a drink from something sweet.

4. Pounds will start to fall off. Alcohol has a sneaky way of increasing your daily calorie intake without you realizing it. One study found men consume an additional 433 calories on those days they drink a "moderate" amount of alcohol. For women, it's 300 calories. Cut those from your diet—and don't replace them with desserts—and you'll start to lost weight without much effort.

5. Hello, clear complexion. Within a few days, you'll notice your skin looking and feeling more hydrated. That's because alcohol is a diuretic, causing you to urinate more. Alcohol also decreases the body's production of antidiuretic hormone, which helps the body reabsorb water. (Less water in the body equals parched-looking skin.) Ruddiness in your cheeks and around your nose may also start to fade, and other skin conditions—such as dandruff, eczema, or rosacea—may also improve.

6. You'll have more money. Drinking—especially a fine wine or scotch habit—is an expensive undertaking. Take a moment to crunch the numbers, adding up what you spend for drinks both at home and out on the town (factoring in tax and tip). It can be an eye-opening—and motivating—exercise.

7. You'll have amazing sex. Alcohol and sex have always had an uneasy relationship with one another. On the one hand, they certainly seem to hook up more often in each other’s presence. On the other hand, those hook-ups aren’t always totally satisfying.

Alcohol can sometimes enhance your libido, but it simultaneously tends to reduce your ability to act on said libido. As a result, men are frequently unable to ‘get it up.’ Ladies lose sensitivity. When you quit drinking, you may find that it’s not only easier to have sober sex, it’s also much more enjoyable.

Not to mention, people who drink more engage in more risky sexual behaviors, so much so that drinking triples your odds of getting a nasty STD compared to those who don't drink. You’re also less likely to use protection. That’s because it plagues judgment and decision-making skills.

If you’re like most people, the benefits of stopping drinking could include a decrease in the sheer quantity of intercourse and a meaningful increase in the quality of your sex life. In a nutshell, quitting drinking means more orgasms, less crabs, and fewer unwanted pregnancies. That’s a win-win.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Adolescent age period is always such. Because adolescent people have other priorities and focal points, it becomes difficult for them to concentrate on study material. Understanding this critical factor can help change your attitude towards self and education.. Take care.

You are most likely to be suffering from Obsessive compulsive personality disorder. Good to know you have insight (as many don't have). Consult a psychiatrist, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and other methods can get you personality modified and reduce your anxiety. All the best.

Dear , you are having a conflict. We call it approach approach conflict. You are between two situations equally needed. But you are unable to decide which to take first. First of all you should prioritize your goals. You can definitely study first and then go for marriage. Talk to your girl friend regarding this and she should agree with your idea. If she is not agreeing, she is not suitable for you. Please post a private question to me and I shall provide you with necessary counseling. Take care.

I am 30 years old. My son is 8 years old. He behaves very aggressively even with the elders of house. I am worried because of his disrespectful nature, disobedience and foul language. Even when he is happy he finds a reason to be sad. Also does not want to study, always starts crying. His father completes his all demands but he has no value of it. I am afraid to take him along to somebody's place because he might behave rudely. please help me understand the cause for his behaviour. His grandparents also live with us. When he is in aggression he is not aware of what he is speaking.

He definitely needs some professional help from a child psychologist. This extent of loss of control and poor behavior needs some attention. You may also know some reasons for this behavior because of any problems you encountered when you were pregnant for him or during his developmental years. You will need to check the family history to see if here are any genetic concerns to take into account too.

Wife is not supporting then leave it. You have to win yourself. Problem is yours not others. Take the help of family members support or friends support. Partners are gift of the god. Some may get very intelligent and cooperative partner some may not. Do not waste of time to depend on her, do hard work to come out of your crises. Husband is the head of the family. Wife is secondary. Anyone question to you not to her. So your role is important to come out of the status. So do the hard work and come out of the status, best of luck.

Hi, When you're feeling anxious or stressed, these strategies will help you cope: Take a time-out. Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head. Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Do keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand. Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks. Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest. Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below. Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly. Count to 10 slowly. Repeat, and count to 20 if necessary. Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn't possible, be proud of however close you get. Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think? Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way. Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Get involved. Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress. Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else you can identify? Write in a journal when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, and look for a pattern. Talk to someone. Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Talk to a physician or therapist for professional help. consult me for any query or if you want any help in dealing with stress.

Hi, first of all the good news for you is that you are not that much pessimist as you are thinking of yourself otherwise you wouldn't have asked here any question. So smile and give yourself a pat on the back:). Secondly get yourself involved in some positive group activities like sports or music. Remember idle mind is devil's workshop. Eat healthy, exercise regularly and have a sound sleep. Make a goal and prepare yourself to achieve it. Make new friends and engage yourself in your hobbies. All will be well soon. You may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate for further discussion.

Thinking is part of life and also this is the age on many changes in life, like career, parents, job, relationships, marriage etc. Relax and respond to your thoughts one by one. Stop thinking same thing again and again, find solutions and move on.

Please help me. I am very depressed as when I go to the bad I can't sleep. What is the reason and solution of it.
Dear lybrate-user, 1. Start counting backward from 100 to 0. When you start counting visualise or image with closed eyes a blackboard which has 100 written on it. Imagine that board is closer to you. As you count backward form 100 to 99, the black board goes farther or far away from you and becomes smaller and the number on board turns to 99. Keep counting till the blackboard vanishes by becoming far and smaller. 2. Insomnia is result of some unconscious stress you are going through. You will require a Psychologist to unfold what unconscious stress you are having. Also if the physical body is not tired it becomes hard to sleep. So I suggest you to do some physical exercises or yoga in morning and evening to tire the physical body. You hv to assess whether which of the condition is more applicable onto you. But in any case the solution in 1. Works well most of the time.

Anxiety and depression tend to go together. There may be reasons lurking from your past of which you may not be aware. Kindly meet with a counselor and that person will help you identify the source and the reason. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Anxiety

Combat with your anxiety issues.

Consider these suggestions.

- When we are anxious our thoughts race, our hearts pounds, our breathing accelerates. So at the first sign of it see what all you can do to intentionally slow things down. 

- Anxiety lives in our minds and often manifests in the body that's why you are feeling dryness of your mouth, fast heart beats, racing thoughts etc. So take a few moments to connect with your five senses, it will help bring you back into the moment.
 
- Be mindful while doing simple tasks, like walking, eating, reading, cooking etc. Being mindful helps remind us we are in control of our choices.
 
- Be aware of your thought process. When you have a negative thought, ask yourself" is this thought true? chances are your worst fears are not the reality of what's happening.

- Be aware of your triggers. If you know your triggers, you can prepare soothing practices better. When the mind feels prepared, it's more at ease.
