30 Days Without Alcohol | I Tried Going Sober

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

I actually think this is gonna be really easy. Hi everyone! My name’s Alayna and I’m going to try and not drink for 30 days. The rules of the month are simple – rule, singular, one single rule: don’t drink any alcohol. Of any sort. Not even a drop. I’ve decided to give this challenge
a try for multiple reasons. Number 1: to get more time back in my life. I wanna make better, more
productive use of my weekends. I don’t wanna spend them in bed, sick mentally and physically. I’m over that life. I think the easiest part of this challenge
is going to be the week, during the week. And I think the hardest part is
gonna be hanging out with friends. Because alcohol is such a social part of my life. All my friends drink, my family drinks. Everyone that I know drinks. And so, I think going to social events
that involve drinking and withholding is gonna be the most difficult part. At the end of the month when we check back in, we’re gonna look at: my productivity – if I got more done that I usually do, my sleep, my weight – I’m gonna see if I lose weight,
gain weight, what happens there – and my anxiety – how’s my brain this month? I think that’s about it. And if it sucks, at least I tried. It is Friday night. The first Friday night of our 30 days sober challenge. Yes, our Christmas tree is still up: don’t judge us. I thought that I was gonna have
more troubles during the week, but I actually found this first week super easy. I didn’t really find myself wanting alcohol at all this week. Probably because the holidays just ended, so I’m all boozed out. But I have to be honest: now that it’s Friday and the work is done, I’m definitely wanting a glass of wine. Here’s the thing. Friday night with no drinking is one thing and then now it’s Saturday and it’s still no drinking. Last night it was kinda like “Okay, yeah, great. We’ll have a chill night. It’s cool. We’ll get so much done tomorrow”. And then now it’s Saturday and we’re still not drinking. It’s safe to say that novelty is wearing off. The first couple of weeks were the hardest.
What was the hardest part? Not drinking. What are you gonna do? Have a glass of wine! Beer! Beer! It wasn’t like I wanted to get drunk. I missed the act of just having
a glass of wine in the evening. Having a beer with my meal. Dallas and I are out tonight for dinner. It’s date night. We’re drinking tea. And then we hung out with
our friends a couple of times. And that was tough. We went to a couple of, like, Superbowl parties and guess who was drinking water? Hello everybody! It is January 15th. Smack-dab in the middle of
our 30 days sober challenge. And today marks the first time that
we are going to be going out with friends. Sober. How do you feel about it? It’ll be interesting because they’re gonna ______ Does everyone know that we’re not drinking? No. – They don’t know?
– No. Oh boy. Weird. There is this social aspect to drinking which was kind of hard to face, but at the same time I think it was important to face. When you go somewhere and everyone else is drinking, it kind of singles you out. You single yourself out and kind of isolate yourself
by saying “Oh no, I’m not drinking”. It’s the situation like this where I would love to just have one or two drinks. So then I would still feel part of the group but I wouldn’t have the anxiety or the bad effects. Going to the experience of wanting to drink but then at the same time, not drinking and looking at the associations
that I hold between alcohol and fun and not only seeing that I can have fun, despite the faces I was making – another Packers’ game, another water – seeing that I can have fun absolutely without alcohol but then also the next day, waking up without a hangover is the best thing ever! There are times during the challenge like this, where I’m like “If I was hung over right now, I would not be here”. If we were hung over, if we had drunk last night, I would not be watching the sunset on a dock. Dallas and I just went out for lunch, we went for a walk. And it’s been a really nice day and I say that it would not have happened, had I drink last night. I know that I’ve been complaining a lot, but I have to nod my head at this challenge ’cause there are definitely some benefits here, that I’m seeing loud and clear. I have gotten so much done this month. It’s actually insane. This challenge is coming to an end. There’s only a few more days left and I’m not gonna lie: I think I’m gonna miss it a bit. Going into the challenge and for the first half to three quarters of it, I was so mad. I was just waiting for it to be over. Did not want to still be doing it. Two more weeks. Two more weeks. But now, coming up to the end, I’m kind of dreading that it’s gonna be over. This is gonna sound kind of dumb, but living every day to its fullest has been really nice! There have been no wasted days. I feel like for the most part I’ve been able to go to bed at night, every single night feeling like I accomplished something that day. And that’s definitely not something that I can say when I’m drinking. So, things to think about. These are things to think about. We’re back! It’s over! 30 days of no drinking. 30 days sober. 30 days without alcohol: check. Did it. We are back here and the challenge is over. Let’s reflect. What would I say the easiest part of this challenge was? The mornings. The daytimes. I genuinely think that I had the most productive month that I’ve ever had. It was like every single day I did stuff. And I just can’t say that when I’m drinking. So, that was really eye opening. Yes, I’m excited that this challenge is done. Yes, I’m excited to have a beer, have some wine. But I’m also kind of sad because this challenge gave me an excuse to not drink. So, I think that’s something
I’ll also just have to look at now, going forward, is why I’m so afraid of people’s judgements. A couple of benefits that I realised: I was super productive, I slept great – so much sleep this month, and I lost 4 pounds. Would I recommend that others try this challenge? Yes. 100%. I think that if you drink – really at all -, I think it’s good, it’s healthy to take a step back and look at your relationship with alcohol,
even if you don’t have a problem or you don’t think you have a problem. Being able to take 30 days off is important. That’s it for this video. Please give it a thumbs up,
if you’re enjoying the “I tried” series and if you want more videos like this. I have some exciting ones planned for the future and I can’t wait to share them with you. Subscribe, if you want more. And I will see you guys next week. Bye! I’m breaking the fast with ________pale ale. And a lot ahead. – Is it good?
– I’ve missed you, my old friend. I don’t want you to walk away from this video thinking I’ve learnt nothing. I’m just gonna have one. I’ve learnt moderation.

I totally understand the social aspect of drinking. I really dont like drinking and right now im at the age where everyone thinks drinking is "so cool" and its just difficult bc i wont get invited places sometimes bc people know i wont drink but id still like to hang out with my friends. But at the same time i dont want to be the babysitter either. Ugh lol

I have an ulcer and haven't been able to drink for over a month now. Not drinking has been the hardest part, or tied with coffee. Though I do like being the designated driver for my friends, they don't have to worry, li'l miss stomach hole has got your back! You go Alayna, hearing from a fellow Winnipegger going through the same thing really helps.

So neat to watch. As a non-drinker/never-will drinker it's funny to see someone struggle with the social aspect. I'm still in college and I can't tell you how many times I've had to turn down parties and going out because I don't want to be in a heavy drinking environment. The culture is definitely ostracizing. I'm loving this series so much Alayna!

i did this a couple years ago and am currently doing so again as part of a nutrition challenge through my gym – except this one is 6 WEEKS. I must admit it doesn't feel all that hard this time because #1 I've done it before and know it's not a big deal and that it will reap positive benefits, and #2 i have like 30 people doing the challenge with me (like imagine if you had dallas x 30) and i already interact with them primarily in a setting that does not involve alcohol (public service announcement: don't lift weights while drunk, lol), so even though it's only been a week i'm feeling poppin and fresh as ever. doesn't mean i don't crave a delicious beer, i love beer, and i will have a beer when i am dome with this 6 week challenge, but having done it before i'm actually really looking forward to not drinking for 6 weeks if you can believe it. one thing that i can DEFINITELY remember from breaking my fast last time however – after a month your tolerance for alcohol decreases BIG TIME. maybe before a glass of wine would leave me feeling groggy and tired, slightly googly tummy, but perfectly functional after breakfast – NOT AFTER NO ALCOHOL FOR 4 WEEKS. one probably the second 3rd worst hangover of my post-college years. so that's just a hot tip for myself – ease back into it. not 4 beers. lol.

I don't mean this to sound judgmental, but you must have drank a lot before to make the idea of taking 30 days off seem so difficult. I love the taste of alcohol, but often go several months without drinking. Maybe it's because I'm older, as well. Again, don't mean to sound judgmental. I just don't want people to think that daily/weekly drinking is necessary because clearly it's not.

The probem isn't the alcohol, the problem is your "perception' of fun, your "perception" of what your friends think of your not drinking. Is the fun of drinking the drunkenness? No. Is the perceived peer pressure you see where your friends expect you to not only drink, but get drunk? If you talked to them and asked if they would no longer be friends if you never drank again, what would they say? True friends would stay true to your wishes, not care and in fact not only support your choice but encourage you and even partake in evenings that don't need to involve alcohol. in my early 20's I had about 1 1/2 years that I can't honesty remember. I worked and I drank, and I don't even recall what job I had. I still drink when I want, as much as I want as often as I want, but I stopped caring what most of my friends thought if i decided not to any given night, and a couple stopped hanging around. Their loss, not mine. Haven't seen or heard from them since. Go out, and enjoy, but don't go from sweet tasting wine or whatever to just WATER. You're destined to fail. Pick something with flavor, or carbonation. Club soda, tomato juice, hell even take some MIO to give the water some flavor and color. Don't take this as a lecture, an intrvention or a member of AA trying to convert you, it's just advice that worked for me. Oh, and Hello from Lorette, and The Peg.

Lots of people leave their Christmas tree after January 6th, that's Reyes Magos day (three wise men day). Latin American and Hispanic people get more presents that day and celebrate a bit more at the start of the year. Also if you buy presents then they're on clearance and it's cheaper! πŸ˜€ Sadly, moving to Norway my family doesn't celebrate it that much but I definitely wanna celebrate it with my partner when we move together uwu

I think we need to change the thing, that if someone is not drinking (for any reason) that it's okay. No pressuring to have a few "live a little!" or asking too many questions why you're not drinking. Just that if the topic comes up people can just go "okay, so you wanna juice? tea?" not putting anymore highlight on the matter.

But it's good that you learned many things about this challenge. πŸ™‚ For me, it happens every year. I have accidentally these "oh I didn't have a drop of alcohol for 30 days again" moment. :p

When you said it isolates you that's so true! I haven't been able to drink for a while now because of my antidepressants and when I'm the only one of my friends not drinking everyone wants to know why or gives you a funny look. I like to drink (within reason) and it's hard to give it up completely and very hard when everyone around you is drinking hard! So well done!!

I don't drink just because I don't want to/because of anxiety I already feel so out of control that I don't like the idea of losing more control? But it definitely does have social impacts. Frankly, hanging out with drunk people when youre sober is boring, so I don't. I don't mind chillin alone on weekend nights but I am definitely always aware that I'm not where everyone else is.

Alayna, I feel ya! I've been sober for over two months and let me tell you, the desire to have a beer or two with my dinner is still as strong as ever. It is very difficult but I have to abstain because of my medication. It has been nice being able to make most of my days and, since I can drive, I don't worry about my friends not getting home safely since I'm DD. There are so many upsides, but I'm ready for it to come to an end in three weeks.


Feb 2, 2017, 8:34 pm Reply

Good on you, this is really interesting to watch as someone who is going on 23 years completely sober. Totally get the whole being isolated in a group and automatically the "odd one out" when you're not drinking. I've learned to cope with it though. Just yesterday I met the parents of some friends who offered me a beer and several "no thank you"s didn't work. Explaining that I don't drink, ever, is always a little awkward.


Feb 2, 2017, 10:30 pm Reply

good on you πŸ™‚ I did 30 days sober and had pretty much the same experience. Really difficult and then really great. Nowadays I feel satisfied with having one or two beers and not needing to have any more. And feel way less self conscious not drinking when others are drinking πŸ™‚

hmm i dont know if this is just because im 19, but ive seen several youtubers recently talk about this and i always find it weird that they miss drinking so much. like dont get me wrong i drink probably once a week (and i get very drunk lol), but only on a big night out. like i'd never just sit and have a glass of wine on my own, and i never just go to the pub and have one drink. either im getting drunk, or im sober, there's no inbetween. so i think i could pretty easily give up drinking for a month, if i chose not to go on nights out.

Why spend your leisure bereft of pleasure?
Amassing treasure, why scrape and save?
Why look so canny at every penny?
You'll take no money within the grave
Landlords and gentry with all their plenty
Must still go empty where ever they're bound
So to my thinking we'd best be drinking
Our glasses clinking and round and round

King Solomon's glory, so famed in story
Was far outshone by the lilies guise
But hard winds harden both field and garden
Pleading for pardon, the lily dies
Life's but a bauble of toil and trouble
The feathered arrow, once shot ne'er found
So lads and lasses, because life passes
Come fill your glasses for another round

The huckster greedy, he blinds the needy
Their strifes unheeding, shouts "Money down!"
His special vices, his fancy prices
For a florin's value he'll charge a crown
With hump for trammel, the scripture's camel
Missed the needle's eye and so came to ground
Why pine for riches, while still you've stitches
To hold your britches up? Another round!

It sucks how hard it is for some people to go without alcohol. It’s so addictive :/ so many alcoholics in the world it’s unreal.

Alcohol is such a little deceiver… it comes off as soooooo much fun and the perfect coping mechanism. But I found that its just the opposite. It becomes a necessity. The social part of it makes it hard to be in around a crowd thats drunk. But then I realized it feels soo much better to be sober hands down. It just sucks in the beginning. Basically you get your brain back. Motivation skyrockets, anyway, i love my mornings now
