    Why the bottle empty? :p
    Your wallet empty? :p
    Or your liver give out? :p
    Even if not any of the above it's still a good idea.
    Plus just think of all the extra money you will have. Cha-ching.

    Take the word might out of this title and you've got something.
    Until you're ready to do that, you ain't ready.

    I quit drinking, dipping, and got back on girls in the past year. It can be done.

    In the past year I've given up coffee and Copenhagen. The caffeine wasn't too bad, the nicotine sucked to quit. I'm telling myself I'm going to give up alcohol during the week at least. Those empty calories aren't helping and I'm getting a gut. Chicks don't really dig beer guts. Anything that you are truly addicted to can be rough. I quit chewing on November 6th, had a cigar with a buddy last Friday. Damned if I wasn't scoping out cigars at the store the next day. In a moment of weakness I got one. Felt terrible about it Sunday and resisted the urge to get another after mass. It was scary. If you've got a problem, do it. You've got to be ready but you will win if you want to. Best of luck and we're here for ya.

    If you really want to quit and are physically able, start running. If you're dedicated to it that will be enough to quit drinking the hard stuff.

    Still working on this one, not easy. But I'm also aware that my current mindset isn't helping me. You know when you're truly ready to quit something and if you're not there you'll back to square one in days.

    Red as an above poster said physical activity (running, lifting, etc.) will make it a lot easier when you decide it is time.

    I quit smoking for almost two years, had "the perfect storm" hit and bought a pack in a moment of weakness. That was a few years ago... Time to give these things up for good.

    Probably the same questions I had and didn't ask for the same reasons. We could've derailed this thread in record time...:grin:
