Remember our post about effects of alcohol on the body? It became a viral sensation with more than 1.4 million views and inspired more than 50 Bored Panda readers to upload their own stories. We decided that these pandas deserve a separate post, so we made a part II to raise even more awareness.

There are so many benefits of quitting drinking - starting with improved health, lost pounds and ending with feeling so much better about yourself while also managing the sometimes irreparable long-term effects of alcohol abuse.

Some of these people changed so much, they're barely recognizable compared to their previous selves - take a look below at our compilation. Be inspired and inspire others to quit alcohol too!
