I stopped reading when the blah blah blah hit eleven on the dial.

This is the hard hitting journalism I expect from the Times

Get over yourself.

If I was still dating in my early 30s and writing puff pieces about the experience during worldwide quarantine for the NYT, I'd feed myself a bullet.

'The term "bumping uglies" took an ironic twist when sobriety reared its unattractive head!'

'Indeed! I've resorted to growing out my pubis in hopes of scaring away that double-bagger on the couch over there.'

So you quit drinking for a month? Good for you, I guess.

As a born and raised New Yorker, I can confirm that the tippy-top of the list of most annoying people in the city are the suburban transplanted, self obsessed, single professionals-about-town who thought Sex and the City was an instructional documentary and don't realize that they're severe alcoholics.

Well, that escalated quickly.
Grumpy this morning, are we, Fark?

I don't take booze out any situation except work and sleep

TL;DR "Once I grew out of my 20's, I realized my social and love lives revolving around booze was no longer as fun and hangovers became a thing, so I stopped."

Stellar reporting there...

Man, if I was sober, maybe I could decipher your mixed messages.

What an incredibly boring life she has

Paywall.  Won't read it then.

That article was such a waste of time.

If you don't want to drink, don't drink.

Don't write a multi-page article on how awesome you are for it, though.  And if you were drinking so much that your relationship is profoundly better without it, then the problem isn't alcohol.

No one is going to make your horribly boring movie. Who am I kidding, this has Lifetime Holiday movie all over it.

sounds horrific, pass the bottle

Somebody wrote on Twitter that she was pregnant, and while she thinks there's no better or worse time to be pregnant, it's a really annoying time to have to go 9 months without drinking.

But there are a lot of people who are alcoholics who are having a tough time being cooped up at home. Some are using it to stay sober, some are relapsing and getting drunk, some are going to meetings on Zoom and some aren't.
