Craft beers are hugely popular and wine tasting is fun, but the effects of alcohol can be seriously detrimental to one’s health. When consumed in excess, it can lead to a host of health issues, including liver failure and brain damage. Although those results are from repeated alcohol abuse, there are smaller signs of too much drinking—like bloated, puffy skin and a dull complexion.

Tired of the physical and emotional ramifications of too much alcohol, some people abstain from it entirely. Whether it be on their own or through a support program, many brave individuals have shared photographs of before and after they got sober. The differences are staggering—many of these people made incredible physical transformations in less than a year. They’ve lost significant amounts of weight, got fit, and have glowing skin. Best of all, they look genuinely happy to be alive.

Check out their personal victories, below.
