I used to always drink alcohol on "date night". Now I enjoy a "mocktail" made of Club Soda on the Rocks with a wedge of fresh lime. It has Zero Calories and no artificial sweeteners which always make me hungrier and thirstier. I feel like I'm enjoying a special drink - but so much healthier than alcohol.
Alcohol has 7 calories per gram. That adds up quick - not to mention the damage to your brain, nerves, and liver especially.
