    I get more exited to mountain bike than ski these days. Still baffled about how that happened.

    Last drink I had was Easter Sunday. Went for a hike with the family, came home and had a big IPA with lunch. Felt great for an hour, then like crap the rest of the day, and despite how early in the day I drank it I still slept terribly. Haven't had an inkling of desire since. It's kinda been coming for a long time, but how completely and suddenly the switch flipped took me by surprise. Sucks in a way because I love a good beer, cocktail or glass of wine.

    Devils lettuce is a different story. Sativa + hike/run/ride = Ohhh yeah. AC also started recently after a lifetime of abstaining. Two months ago we traded watching TV until 10:00 or so (often half asleep, so pointless) for vaping some heavy indica together, going to bed at 9ish, and meditating for the better part of an hour. Our entire relationship has improved. I'm sleeping better than I have in my entire adult life and feeling amazing lately. My sudden total lack of desire for alcohol is definitely related.

    For some reason, I started really caring about people being on my lawn.

    maybe you have changed?

    I found 50 wasnt hard, 60+ its harder to keep on keeping on, doing them out door things where I seemed to get older but the other people kept being young or at least younger, the people my age were working/ married/ not doing it anymore. For me the marriages hadn't stuck I was done working at 49, I got used to being the oldest person by 20 yrs watching the band, smoking a reefer out in front of the bar or in the lineup for the slush cup, in any case hopefully at some point one can defy all labels and just dictate their own whatever man

    Ok, for me I started to get less competitive. That was surprising. Still not sure how I feel about it.

    I was that person who pretty much had a coffee mug in my hand all the time, for my whole life.

    Over the last 9 months I noticed that I was subconsciously drinking less and less of it, and just in the morning. A french press was lasting me 3 days.

    About a month ago, I tried a little experiment on myself and one day skipped the coffee all together. I feared splitting headaches and no energy. The opposite resulted. I felt much calmer and focused.

    Been coffee/caffeine free for 3 or so weeks. I get up and sip on some zen tea with a drop of honey.

    I'm baffled that after all those years, I would be that guy, but I am.

    I was really hoping that I wouldn't give damn about sex at this point, it would make things so much easier. But nope, still a slave to my body.

    Holy fuck this thread is depressing. A bunch of people quitting alcohol and coffee and feeling better for it.

    No wonder you didn't enjoy it anymore, you were drinking three day old coffee!

    Yep, time has a way of changing one.

    Your perspective.

    Whats important.

    Who you like or even want to be around.

    I find it most important that I do the things that I find joy in. Spend time with my folks. Go into nature with the activities that resonate with me and I can still do moderately well. Spend time with the few friends I have.

    In essence if you are growing and learning you become a different and better person. Its not sad or wrong. What is write for ewe is knot for anuther.

    make every day count

    Funniest part is that she's pissed at herself for not trying it years ago. My energy levels are so good lately that I've had to cut way back on coffee. Doesn't take much to feel like I should be raging at Jesse's house.

    I want my 30 year old legs back.

    As far as drinking, my ex father in law, may he R.I.P., told me, in retirement, set yourself a strict cocktail time, and stick to it. Mine's 5 pm. If I'm interested.

    I've learned to be careful with edibles. They kill the day five hours after taking them. So, noon.

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    Same here. Not retired, but it's 5pm for me- unless camping or fishing or doing something else drinky.

    I find edibles ruin me the next day if I take them too late.

    I quit drinking during the week a while back. Used to have between 3-5 drinks a night. Feels better, but not that much better. Really just did it because of the long term health consequences. Sure makes Friday more fun!

    Edit to add: I'll be 53 in June.
