Anyone care to join me in giving up booze for January?

Ok Rickster you're on. I have 3 exams in January and can't afford to lose any brain cells to alcohol.

Have decidde this one already as I'm doing the Thames Trot on 2nd Feb.   Considering I can get through an awful lot of wine it's going to be tough going.   Could do with the support.

i will, but i dont drink anyway, so im not sure it counts.

Saw this if anyone interested http://www.dryjanuary.org.uk/

I had a dry January this year and some people can't get their heads round it, maybe if it is as a sponsosored thing it would be easier for people to understand.
Having said that I'll be doing it again for myself as I don't give a toss if others don't understand! Chiefly due to race commitments for Feb/March so will probably be off it until after race in March.

no way

13/11/2012 at 19:25

It's such an easy challenge. You just don't drink booze for 31 days. What's so hard about that?

13/11/2012 at 20:03

The fact that you cant have any booze.

13/11/2012 at 22:28

i don't understand the purpose of this challenge.

although i don't understand the purpose of ultras either and i do them.

Give up the booze and get some snooze.

I want to try it Ricckster, more from a performance point of view to see if does help. Of course getting more sleep and not posting on her at 1 in the mornnig has got to be part of the deal too?

A great way to start the New Year so will book a few races to keep the incentive going. A few glasses of the red stuff (the more expensive the better!) is definitely one of my weaknesses. Count me in.

only a calvinist nation like ours would view such a pleasure as 'weakness'.

14/11/2012 at 09:31

what! give up a whole food group? I'm sure wine is practically fruit juice anyway

Hmm, tried it for 2 weeks once when I got back from an especially booze fuelled adventure in India and thought some time away from my wobbly leg inducing friend might be in order. I got to the Sunday 1 week and 5 days in and crumbled into a glass of wine.  Cheap South African Sav Blanc has never tasted so epic.

I'd probably find it easier now as I drink far less than back then so maybe i'll give it a try.  I think it's more justifiable if you have a race at the end of the month mind.  My race in Jan is right at the start so i'd probably get 2 weeks in again and wonder why the hell i'm bothering putting myself through this wholly unecessary torture.

They again, i'll be asking myself the same question 3 miles into the race.

January is already miserable as it is...

If anyone can't go 31 days without alcohol, then it shows that they have a problem. Now if you wish to deny that...

14/11/2012 at 12:51

if i felt a desire to give up booze, then i'd give it up for good. not 31 days.

14/11/2012 at 12:54

I've cut down dramatically over the last few months but I have no desire to give it up totally even if it's only for 31 days. I dont think I could even if I wanted to. So, even though I dont exceed the recommended weekly allowance Rickster does that mean I still have a problem ?

Well if you can stop for 31 days it shows you can do without.
