January Joy (2)




So the second day of January Joy is to have a dry week/month. I'm not quite doing this one completely properly to be honest. Having read countless research indicating that dry Januarys aren't actually that good an idea - see here and here, I'm concentrating more on changing my drinking habits as opposed to cutting it out completely.

So the plan is this: 2 alcohol free nights per week and limiting myself to just one glass of red on all the other nights. I have spent hours scouring the internet for validation that a nightly glass of wine is actually good for  you - see here and here. We'll ignore the opposing research that suggests I'll be dead in ten years time from liver failure.

However I do have a lunch date at Yo Sushi on Thursday and it's going to be weird not having my usual glass of vino with my salmon skin roll. And I am also eagerly awaiting the return of my boyfriend who is coming home armed with champagne and notions of celebrating our New Years Eve Thursday night instead....

Wish. Me. Luck.

Good luck, you can do it! I guess it's just about changing a habit. I used to drink more when I was a student but now find where I would usually have a glass of wine I now just treat myself to my favourite soft drink (which probably isn't much better)! xx

Almost Delightful

This is a very good idea, there is no way I can cut out alcohol entirely - January is hard enough! =) Happy New Year! x

I drink wine more since I had a baby heehee. I think it's the stress of running around after her all day! Thanks for the good luck :) x
