Rapmaster2000: F that. The playoffs just started.
Meat's dream: I did it almost by accident last year. Then I just kept doing it. I'm still fat and intolerable, but I have more money now.
lostcat: Now, if only I could apply the same clarity to burger, curry, and pizza consumption.
FormlessOne: ...why?Never mind the patronizing tone of the article, or the insistence that "it's an increasing trend" to convince you to do it - if you're drinking so much beer that you have to schedule a month off to "appreciate beer and not take it for granted", maybe changing your overall habits is in order. If you're drinking so much booze that you not only have to schedule a month off to "improve your health," but have to drink camouflaged beverages so that your drinking buddies don't realize that you're not drinking, maybe you need to figure out the definition of the word, "moderation", and how it should apply to you.See, this whole "I took some time off to prove that I wasn't an alcoholic" bit is what alcoholics do to deny the simple fact that they're alcoholics. "Look - I've got self control! Now, back to the booze!"
LucklessWonder: I'm doing a booze free January, not out of nay particular trend, just happen to not have the cash for good beer right now, and I'd rather not waste my budget on mass market piss water.
The Frumious Bandersnatch: I'm doing it... but only because I have a fussy two week old. So no beer for me, desire the dire need.

Nick Nostril: That'd be me. I need to change my life.Got the flu between Xmas and New Years. Haven't even missed it yet (the booze; I definitely don't miss the flu). Amazing how much better I'm sleeping.
Nurglitch: Weed is dry, right?
Erik_Emune: I'm giving it a try. Life turned increasingly crappy over the second half of 2017, and I found myself using alcohol to cope more than I really liked. The holidays saw the end of my good booze, anyway, and so it seems a good time to put the brakes on. We'll see.
