5 Reasons Cutting Alcohol Out of Your Life is So Worth It

June 22, 2015 2 min read

Don't get me wrong, cutting out drinking isn't an easy task. Booze is deeply imbedded in our culture. Grabbing a drink with a friend or a date is second nature. And in today's society, fun equals a wild night out where everyone gets nice and tipsy. Drinking has become cool, and movies like The Hangover, Project X and 21 and Over only drive that notion that getting "f*cked up" is the only way to have a good time. Here are 5 reasons that may sell you on embracing a more sober life. Especially, if you're like me, a 20-something girl who is totally over her college party days, but might be having a hard time shaking the occasional, regretful booze binge night. 1) You'll remember your experiences No more waking up wondering why there is a half-eaten sushi boat on your living table and Dance Dance Revolution playing full volume on your Xbox! Or worse, finding embarrassing drunk photos of yourself on your Instagram feed. Sober nights are so much easier to remember, and remembering things is fun. 2) No more throwing away your money Alcohol is not only expensive, but nights out on a whole are pricey. With cabs, admission and the inevitable late night pizza order, drinking nights can create a dent in your finances. 3) Goodbye hangovers You won't be dealing with the infamous feeling of nausea and a killer migraine, followed by the comfort of greasy food and Netflix. You'll start appreciating waking up fresh, clearheaded with no false eyelashes stuck to your face or glitter in your hair, and ready to start your day. 4) Here comes a stronger immune system When booze gets the boot, immune function gets boosted! Liquor wears away the lining of your esophagus (yuck!) and makes it easier for viruses to work their way in. So ditch the drinks, and you won't be stricken by so many colds and flus. 5) You'll look fresher Alcohol damages your liver, the organ that filters out toxins from your body. It can also dehydrate your skin at an alarming level. Saying bye bye to booze retains your healthy, natural glow and prevents your skin from aging prematurely.

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.
Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping on almost all products in our store! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
