“Self congratulation is a necessary form of communication with your body.”

Think about the great things you’re doing for your body by not drinking. Although you know of the ill effects and long-term complications that can come from alcohol use, the fun and believing that being young keeps you immune has outweighed thinking it through. Once you have stopped drinking, it’s good to remind yourself how you have turned things around and how your health will start to improve.

These are some of the benefits you will reap right away:

  • You should feel an increase in motivation and energy level.
  • Sleep on the weekends should improve and you will feel rested when you wake up.
  • You will get more school work accomplished.
  • You won’t feel the funk on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
