It has only been 70 days. Really, it is not that big of a deal. However, I want to encourage others who are chasing excellence to pursue more self-experimentation. Maybe you can learn about yourself from reading about what happened when I took a break from alcohol for 70 days.
Here’s The Point Of This Article
This is about doing some self-experimentation. This break from alcohol is about doing some self-discovery. If you want, you can use this article to find out about you. This is about getting to that next level in your climbing. Or maybe you need to get to that next level in your life.
Maybe nothing happens when you take a break from alcohol. Who knows? But if you decide to go for it, I will cheer for you.
This is not an article about how you need to stop drinking; or, that alcohol is from the devil. That is not what this is about. I really don’t care if you are a rock climber (or not) and you drink – or drink a lot, a lot. As long as you don’t drink and drive; and, as long as you leave no trace, I don’t care about your drinking habits.

- Am I being injured too often?
- Why am I not less fat around my middle?
- What if I am only one adjustment away from making great gains in my climbing skills?
- Jason, you work out every day. You’ve been eating better. But you’ve got this plateau. You’ve stopped improving. Why?

I just wanted to find out for myself if alcohol was holding me back from making the gains that I thought I should be making – in climbing and in other parts of my life.
Another reason that it was easy for me to just decide, was the timeliness of reading an article from one of my online mentors, Ed Latimore. Ed is an undefeated pro-boxer and he wrote this article: 10 Observations From 2 Years Of Not Drinking.
