Changing booze lifestyle Watch

Basically, over the last three years my lifestyle has revolved around alcohol. I was becoming a rather heavy drinker when I went to uni, and got to the stage last term when I was drinking in the region of 35 units a night. I always knew of the bad effects it was having on me but believed the confidence I gained from it in terms of getting girls, as well as the social side of hanging out with fellow bingers balanced these out. But the negatives have started outweighing the positives and have decided to cut down drastically- for good. I'm to limit myself to four drinks a night, and drink a maximum of three nights per week. I've written the following reasons about why I would be better without booze, and how it is generally a negative thing.

Produces oestrogen and inhibits muscle growth
Hangovers ruin whole of next day- Horrible feeling so can't study or work out.
Chance of becoming alcoholic
Reduces chances of pulling if plastered
Offend random people or friends
Reputation of a drunk
Ruins complexion
Liver damage
Lowers semen count

Can anyone think of any more to add to the list of shame?

It can eventually kill you, alienate family members, ruin lives.

I think that given the high intake you need to reduce your intake rather more severely so you know you are not an alcoholic already.

I drink too much too. Not as much as you..like 25units a night at the most, but always around that number. And i also think maybe I should stop drinking so much, as Im not even at uni yet!!
It's a bad thing, because when youre old you'll remember more if you didnt drink so much in your youth

Brain Damage
Long-term alcoholics also lose bone mass as alcohol affects the way calcium is processed by the body

Just give up on the whole, alchohol isn't any good and it doesn't make you anti-social, plus it's a good way to start a conversation

Don't listen to this guy. My mother died due to the effects of alcoholism. The gravity of your choice is very stark indeed! Alcohol can cause massive damage!

Inhibits synapse so you have slower reactions hence when driving you could potentially be a killer. You arent as sharp, for example you could pick up a girl from a night club and find out she's underage =) bang paedo slapped on your name. Prolonged alcohol intake = alcohol poisoning erm.. cant think of anything else.
