The impact of excessive alcohol consumption can wreak havoc on the human body and mind, and Kenny Dunn has firsthand experience. In 2016, Kenny was drinking anywhere from a dozen to two-dozen alcoholic drinks every day, often blacking out up to four times a week, according to an interview he did with Bored Panda.
On November 2 of that year, though, Kenny decided to change his life for the better. He chose sobriety and a healthy lifestyle over alcohol, and the changes have been apparent both inside and out. He has since started a podcast and a workout routine, and he’s pretty much unrecognizable from the man he used to be.
Kenny has been taking progress pics since he spent his first 24 hours sober, and the difference is… well, see for yourself:
And now, four years later, this is what Kenny looks like:
With a renewed focus on his health and self-esteem, Kenny looks and feels nothing like his “old self.”
With the excess calories and negative impacts of alcohol now out of his life for good, Kenny has more energy and desire to do things that will make his life better.
Congrats to Kenny on four years of sobriety! Hopefully he can inspire others to take the same journey themselves.
