I keep various journals of events that take place in my life, they range from friends I make, people I've worked for, detailed sexual encounters and recently on how much I drink. In a 31 day journal I've kept, I've found that I've drank 39 bottles/cans of something alcohol. In one night I drank 28 units [three bottles of Crabbies Green Ginger Wine, each worth 9.3 units]! I've drank 20 cans of Bass Ale which is somewhat proudly formed as a pyramid on my shelf.
I'll paste the log of this month in, all italics so feel free to skip the italics, also this doesn't represent any booze I've had outside of my flat. I haven't got a log including booze at pubs/clubs/others flats/house parties/gatherings:
20 Bass Ale
6 Crabbies Green Ginger Wine
1 Crabbies Malt Ginger Wine
1 Old Thumper
1 Newcastle Brown Ale
1 Banks Caribbean Larger
1 IPA Gold
1 Innis Gull
Total units: 138.15
I do not think I have a drinking problem, however unlikely you might find that statement. I do not crave beer. I just like the effects on me and the taste.
The real issue is that I've developed a gut, I don't like it. I used to be thinner. This is the main reason I've made this thread, looking for help.
What is the best way to get rid of a gut? I'm able to workout.
I'm a university student in the United Kingdom. If you're unaware the United Kingdom is known by other Europeans as the drunks of Europe. Students generally love drinking.. so I'm really hitting the stereotype.
I intend on becoming teetotal until I'm happy with my body again, but I do not plan on being teetotal afterwards. Those that are, are generally on the fringes of the social groups I am part of.
