Its offiicially time to quit...

I have to give up the hooch!

I have realized that my motto used to be live the cleanest and most present lifestyle possible. Somewhere along the way, I decided to give in and throw that away. It could have been peer pressure or it could have been weakness on my part. The reality is that I take full responsibility for my choices.

This weekend, my cousin and I threw down like we were in college all over again. I drank more in two days than in an entire year. Redbull and vodka are great, just not in college level quantities. Hear me out, Im not stopping because of my age. Age has nothing to do with it. Matter of fact, if you take care of yourself and eat right and work out, you maintain fitness levels throughout and decrease the oxidative process (something which drinking does the exact opposite of).

I am quitting the hooch because, I realize it clouds my head. I came home yesterday and slept from 4pm until 5:30 this morning. I am still in a fog and feel like I have been on a ship for 14 years. To me its just not worth it

Im going back to soda water with lime and exercise and great food. I start today with a run and then a quick 30-40 minute workout at the gym and I begin the reformative process all over again. After all, if we don't take care of ourselves, Who will?

Until next time...



  1. Chad, you don't have to give up drinking. You just have to give up drinking with John! He is a terrible influence!! ;)

    So happy you guys had a fun weekend. Wish I had been there with ya. And while I do not really agree with giving up alcohol entirely (I love wine & martinis too much) I will say that I've recently slowed down my alcohol intake quite a bit. I don't really like wasting an entire Sunday due to a hangover. However, I do recognize your choice to live a cleaner & healthier life and I wish you all the best! Happy Thanksgiving Chad!!

  2. Chad, good on you brother! having clarity is worth it.
