The more I meditate, the more I exercise and the more I eat healthier – the more my body rejects alcohol. I cut out liquor a long time ago. I didn’t like the taste and it just brought back memories of terrible hangovers. Lately, I have been just drinking red wine and beer on occasion, but even that doesn’t seem to work for my body anymore.
I drink a beer to loosen up, but I always know that I’m not going to feel good a few hours later nor will I feel one hundred percent the next day, even if I only had two beers. Last night I could feel and hear my body saying no more, so I am going to listen. No more.
I’m not sad about it. I actually find it quite interesting. The older I get the less tolerant my body is regarding toxic food and beverages. I feel the same way about doing things in my life that don’t really serve a purpose. I’m over the bullshit. Passion, purpose and health – that is where my attention is.
It has been about five months now that my wife and I have been on a vegan diet. So far I am enjoying it, however, we still have a lot to learn. Regardless of any diet, you can still easily be unhealthy. It can be difficult, but the goal is to eat as much natural food as possible. I’m starting to listen to my body more and that is one of the best things I have done in a long time.
I like to feel sharp, I like being aware of myself and surroundings and I like waking up ready to rock n roll. Alcohol just doesn’t make the cut anymore, but more water and smoothies do. Goodbye alcohol, hello health.
