You’ll Lose Weight
One of the most immediate and arguably best reasons to stop drinking is weight loss. There are three big explanations for why you’ll start losing weight when you stop drinking.
First, alcohol is entirely made of empty calories, which means those calories don’t work for you like a complex carb that gives you sustained energy.
If you never thought about the liquid calories you’re drinking, take a look at these numbers:
Standard can of beer: 154 calories
Glass of white wine: 128 calories
Martini: 295 calories
Jack and Coke: 308 calories.
