Day 1, 2, 3 No Lean refers to an ironic series of memes where the phrasal template "Day X No Lean," "X" most often being a number between one and three, is used over an image of a person or character showing an emotion that implies they've stopped taking lean or purple drank. The format is inspired by a December 2020 Instagram post by rapper Kasher Quon and became increasingly popularized in late 2021 and early 2022 alongside the I Love Lean!!! format. In February 2022, the format inspired video edits on YouTube where internet celebrities and characters document their journey getting off lean.


Around December 11th, 2020, rapper Kasher Quon posted a selfie to his Instagram Story captioned, "Day 2 no lean 😂💀🥺" The image was reposted by Instagram[1] page incellectuuls and iFunny[2] user deftones (shown below) on December 11th and 15th respectively.
