Dry January

With a combination of pubs shutting, stressful work periods and Cov playing every few days in December, I have noticed a tenancy to casually go to the fridge for a few cans more than I have ever done. So thought I would give dry January a go this year to see if it makes much of a difference.

Anyone taking part?

Probably, unless the pubs miraculously open or we're allowed to go back to football.

Been drinking a lot more over the last few months, so planning on doing it for at least a couple of months.

I ordered 48 cans of Brewdog last week and order receipt said 24 cans so I raised a query with them.
Cans turn up. 48 of them.
Got an email the next day apologising for them only sending me 24 cans and as an apology they will re-order my entire order.
48 cans turned up the next day for free. The order receipt said 24 cans. I was tempted to raise a query with them again but left it.

So I've got to get through those otherwise I'd stop for a bit.

Fuck that. Just about the worst time of year to attempt it if you ask me. I'm going to cut down a bit though

I'm doing dry January.

I drank far too much last year, but did abstain for 4 weeks before binging over Christmas and New Year. I slept better, and felt better for not drinking, I've noticed the difference since drinking again over the holiday.

Hope it goes well for you!

Normally only drink at weekends but I'm the same as you, drank more during the week which I don't normally do. Even after one or two cans you can tell the next morning.

Feeling a bit fragile today so looking forward to recovery tomorrow and then see how it feels waking up on a Sunday fresh

When the pubs opened up again I was out drinking and sinking loads of pints especially Guinness, really enjoyed it. Sat talking to some lads in the club one time while watching a match,and all of us said we don't bother drinking at home, and one bloke who is a heavy boozer remarked he's never drank alcohol ever in his house, only in pubs or clubs. Must be an age thing, or just we enjoy the social side of it ?

New Years Day, when the boozers are open, is one of the best days drinking of the year so I am going to carry on that tradition today and try and drink every bit of alcohol I have in the house but then after that I’m gonna have a bit of time off.

Contemplating not drinking till the pubs are back open but knowing how weak willed I am think I’ll just take it one weekend at a time.

Me and the Mrs are doing it,Heard good things about sleep patterns,Clearer skin and obviously the liver benefits,We weren’t enjoying it over Christmas/New year tbh.
Only had two cans of Heineken last night and was in bed asleep before midnight.
Worth a go I reckon.👍🐘

Did about three months sober before Christmas, and then had a few nights on the booze over the festive period. Didn't feel particularly good about it to be honest. Groggy the next day etc.

Used to drink absolutely loads but I found it was much easier to be healthy when I wasn't drinking. I.e. Less junk food binges and less hangovers to stop me exercising.

Will go dry again now and see how I get on.

Been toying with the idea for a while now. “Missed out”on furlough until it was extended in November, I’ve basically been lazing around for the last two months. On the scales this morning I’m over 14st for the first time ever.
Never used to drink in the week, now I’m doing 6+ cans most evenings.
