I am an alcoholic man, and I know all too well the consequences of my addiction.
I was always an average-sized man, but when I started drinking beer, I started to gain weight very quickly. I started out drinking one or two beers a day, but eventually it got to the point where I was drinking a full jug of beer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
It wasn’t long before I was obese and unable to control my weight any longer.
I am now in my late 40s and have been an alcoholic for the past 15 years. I was able to hide my addiction for a long time, but eventually it all caught up with me. My body started to break down and I became grossly overweight.
I was drinking so much beer that it was affecting my metabolism and I was gaining weight at an alarming rate. I was consuming more calories than I was burning, and my body began to store it all in the form of fat.
I went from wearing size S clothes to now XXL.
I also stopped going to the gym and doing any kind of physical activity. I was so consumed by my addiction that I had no energy or motivation to do anything else.
I was in a downward spiral and my health was rapidly deteriorating. I was drinking massive amounts of beer and my body was unable to process it, so it was just getting stored as fat.
It wasn’t long before I was morbidly obese and had to start wearing larger clothes to fit my body. I was ashamed of what had happened to me and I was unable to look at myself in the mirror.
I had become a shadow of my former self and it felt like I had completely lost control. I was drinking so much beer that I would often pass out and wake up the next day feeling terrible.
My family was very concerned about me and they tried to get me to stop drinking, but I was so addicted that I couldn’t listen to them.
I was living in denial and refused to accept that my drinking was causing me so much harm. I thought I could get away with it and that I was invincible, but eventually I realized that I was wrong.
