I'm doing it. Anyone else want to?
Stupid spelling rules
and are calling it 'sobvember'
ie i don't drink sometimes to improve my training, but not doing it for no reason is just poop. I only don't drink at times because I have to.
It saves money, it helps your health, your gut and stops addiction setting in.
It's also just to remind yourself every now and again not to reply on booze to be confident / enjoy stuff.
Lasted 2 weeks.
Want details of where to send my trophy?
Trying to go through to Nov 11th, which is when a blow-out is planned.
Go me, saving my liver and tings.
This is all about YOU.
I was about to start this same thread this morning.
I'm scared/excited/want to stop shaking when I wake up.
I just can't do it any longer....I'm getting SO ILL.
Tomorrow is my last night of I AM DRINKING. Please do join me.
but I don't want to
BUT I am cutting down.
I have something on every night for the next 3 weeks, but after that it should be cool. So basically, the last week in November, I'm gonna be dry. Except for the open mic, or St Andrew's Day, or oh fuck, who am I kidding.
There's always something!
I'm actually going to try and DO less.
i'm trying to up my alcohol intake so I can cope with the short days and cold.
Drinking nothing and then going fucking mental at Xmas parties is extremely dangerous for the liver. You're better boozing in moderation, and trying to have 2-3 days off each week (preferably 2 of these days to be consecutive.) So says my liver surgeon friend, who also declares most forms of "detoxing" to be "utter bobbins" and often more lethal than the toxins you're trying to purge.
Grow a fucking moustache instead.
So I'll probably end up having my first booze for months in November.
has a much better rhyme.
could be misinterpreted.
this still sounds like a terrible idea
It's my birthday on the 14th you bunch of dickheads.
Weekdays only (unless we go out for food), and weekends include Friday - Sunday. 1 drink allowed Mondays if it has been a bad one.
I've heard of plenty of people doing it in January to detox after Christmas. But November? Nah. Then again I'm not a pussy.
It's a rest before the Xmas binge.
I'd rather not drink in November knowing there's loads of parties coming up than go sober in the long, cold dark and miserable month of January. And it's a day less.
I haven't drunk yet.
Still coming though
but then I have a shitty week at work and by 5.03pm on Friday I'm hammering on the bar and singing Danny Boy at the top of my voice.
I could never give up the booz
it's fucking LENT all over again
I'm going to try and keep off it for a while.
will probably keep going until Christmas now...saves money, lose weight, feel tiptop in the mornings WOOP
so I may as well drink
