I came to a point where I brewed 10 gallons per brew session. Then I gained 90lbs due to my drinking habit and I had to quit. I'm now under a strict diet ... beer has been a long forbidden lover. So I'm selling my equipment (locally). My gallon per day love affair is over

But what hits me worst is the fact I have to leave you great ppls. Alcohol is one hell of a drug, and beer did make me fat ( e-****ing-nor-mous ). But you people warmed my heart and made me think its ok to drink too much

Ok, enough of the mooshy stuff, I'm out. No need to reply, I'm already gone. Damn this health minded world.

I couldn't show control, now I must roll.

That wasn't 90 pounds of fat he gained, it was 90 pounds of liver!

So...I just got done reading a bit of the "are you an alky" thread, then this one jumped out at me.

I've been at points in my life where a gallon a day was nothing (eight pints - some of us have been there...think about it), working at a brewery and rooming at a house with two brewers (pros) in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by good beers, it was very easy to rationalize at the time. That was a while ago and now I go a week and think to myself..."it's been a while since I have a nice cold one hasn't it?"

My point: Good on ya for needing a change and doing something about it. That said, there's nothing constant but change (read: hold onto that equipment )
