The most common side effects of quitting smoking cold turkey are insomnia, depression, headaches, mood swings, etc.
Quit, I did too. Also drank the same for many years. Craved sugary food and had lots more time on my hands. Go to AA meetings, find sober friends, keep busy, read, exercise, eat good. I drink coffee now, with flavoured creamer, tastes good. Was easy to go cold turkey off 6 drinks a day, but keep busy and lots of meetings, it gets better really quick. Sober life feels great!!!
You CAN do it. No more alcohol. Period. Your body will, in very short order, adjust to feeling healthier, especially if you keep a healthy diet and include some excersize. I did this, and actually replaced whatever alcohol I would have consumed with APPLE JUICE (of all strange things), the way it makes my mouth pucker just a bit takes th edge off. Try it. Other fruit juices may work just as well. - Blu
