Almost there for Dry January (but I'm carrying on for another 16 days in Feb and on/off until late April).

I have reduced my alcohol consumption considerably as part of a weight loss campaign. Having said that, I have had two days where I know I had too much. Neither left me with a hangover, but that's bye the bye.

Regarding comparing smoking with drinking, when my daughter worked for CRUK, she told me that they regarded alcohol as being pretty much as bad as tobacco for its links with cancer, but they simply didn't have the resources to take on another massive multi-billion global industry with very strong links with the world's top politicians.

As with all poisons, the best policy is not to have them at all. Cutting consumption is better than full-on binge drinking. Having been all holier-than-thou in the above statements, I do enjoy beer, wine and whisky and I find it very hard to envisage a situation in which I will never have them again. I gave up smoking completely in 1987, shortly after giving up teaching. I have no desire whatever for a cigarette now.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

I had around 50ml of 5% wine at my niece's Bat Mitzvah meal at the weekend so I haven't been totally dry.

I don't think ΒΌ unit has any measurable effect on me anyway.

31/31 for January here too. I'll probably do Feb too - it's all part of the weightloss thing.

31/31 for me, too, not totally sure how far into Feb I will get....

We had holidays in january so we had a half bottle of wine last night,  2013, St Emilion, and are now dry for the next month and probably into March as well as part of the weight loss.

Last day for me, going to the pub later and could easily be tempted so will see if I can stick to my original decision.
