    It's been about 10 days since my last drink. I don't feel much different yet other than that for the first few hours after waking up I am somewhat dizzy. Not I have to sit down and compose myself dizzy, but foggy in the head dizzy.

    Anyone ever give up alcohol? Is this common?

    Gave it up for a month in march. No real cravings or difference but saved $$$ big time.

    I developed a complete intolerance to alcohol, like an allergy, but I did not experience that foggy dizziness.

    I didnt touch a drop from 26 to 48, I didn't have a taste for it. Now I occasionally enjoy 2-3 Stellas in the evening. :beer:

    Gave up the big time drinking a few years back. Had a little anxiety for a week and I think a night sweat or two. Drink once in a while now. Usually a beer or two or a glass of wine at a dinner.

    Good luck. Feel better. :thumbup2:

    I probably have about 40 gallons of beer on tap at any given time. But I rarely drink more than 3 or so pints a week.. Maybe durning football season I'll have a few during the game.. I never want to have a dependency on alcohol, I enjoy it too much.
