I'm totally starting it tomorrow. It's still January right?

Can't fail if you aren't foolish enough to start it

Nah... every thread benefits from non sequitur.

I ended up kind of having a dry half a January because I didn't brew enough beer and cider and ended up gifting a lot of what I had made.  I try to limit myself to drinking my homebrew as it is better than anything I can get at my local delis, and life is too short for crappy beer.

look at your relationship with alcohol and make sure you're not using it to medicate through the stress of life, especially during the pandemic.

What the hell else is alcohol to be used for, exactly?  Guess I've been doing it wrong.
 
2022-01-25 1:12:29 PM  
You farkers do your thing, but I for one resolved to not drink any more this January.

/Nor shall I drink any less....

Dry drunks can be annoying, in a self-righteous way.

With all the "Dry Feb" commercials I saw during sportsball games, I'm guessing not so well.

Seldom been a day since the working from home began that I haven't had one or two during the afternoon.

It's not a great coping mechanism but hey... it's what I'm comfortable with

He said it's important to look at your relationship with alcohol and make sure you're not using it to medicate through the stress of life, especially during the pandemic.

This is why marijuana legalization has been a real godsend. I'm not even looking for an "escape", I just want to be able to actually get some sleep. The sleep is doing the heavy lifting.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: ... marijuana legalization ...

I skipped No-Nut November and Dry January. I'm waiting for Fibonacci February
 
2022-01-25 7:51:40 PM  
Why would you pick January? It's easily the worst month already. Why not Dry April or something?

I'm sure the answer is "someone wanted to try and make up for all the indulging they did around the holidays, and then it became a thing."

There's also that gray area of "Can you drink after midnight at a New Year's party?"

Ah, No-Shave November. At least Dry January has a point to it. With NSN the final prize is looking like a caveman.

It's working out great for me. The lineups at the liquor store are noticeably shorter.

Well, there goes Dry January.

Currently traveling between home and Florida to visit family and friends. While sitting in my I-75 hotel bar enjoying some business guy mentioned own his heavy travel schedule was negatively impacting his tween daughter. That immediately triggered my memories of working my ass off at work including lots of travel, then my son took his own life while I was in Florida. That's it for this stupid month.

I've never had much luck with alcohol, I literally don't have the stomach for it. I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis when I was 13. My stomach will violently eject hard liquors, I've drunk Whiskey2 and Vodak1 'socially' three times. Within twenty minutes I ended up either hanging over a porch railing or wrapped around a toilet puking all three times. I don't like the taste of beer so I don't drink it.

I can drink a little Wine or Amaretto or Slo Gin} but I don't really drink it often. I had two glasses of wine when we went to our sons this last Thanksgiving, I hadn't had a glass of wine for maybe a year and a half before that. My dad was a raging alcoholic until I was 24 so I was never overly fond of booze anyway but I never need to worry about drinking too much. Yay for rotten guts I guess.
