Once again, not against my better judgement but actually using my better judgement, I will attempt to GO DRY this January.
Yep – January this year. Like the Brits, doing their Dry January
Or an amalgam of Canadian charities doing their Dry January
Or a British Columbia charity, BeYouPromise.Org, hosting their Dry January:
Seems like everyone is doing this sober thing in January. Makes sense. In December you’ll be doing some serious indulging. You’ll be gorging yourself on butter tarts and beer, turkey and tequila, whiskey, wine and wasabi. You’ll be engorged with the Holiday Spirit(s)!
And then you’ll be spending time whooping it up on New Year’s Eve, either at a party or parties, or strangely alone on your couch. Any which way, you’ll have tied it on, soaked it up, drank it down, ate the roast beast and otherwise heard the Whos who-whoing down in Whoville.
And maybe, just maybe… you’ll need a break from the boxes and soxes, the drinking and slinking. If you do pause from boozing, it’s weight you’ll be losing. If you break from misbehaving, it’s money you’re saving. And if you stop getting wetter, your sleeping’ll be better…
Don’t make me steal the sobriety alone. Go Thirsty this January.
