I didn't do Dry January this year, but I am doing 'Dry Lockdown' - haven't touched a drop of alcohol for a week, since I started WFH.

Let's see how long I can last... it helps that we currently don't have any booze in the house.

It's Lent so I've been drysolation so far, but that will change come April 12th.

Second week of #drysolation and going strong. It's actually getting easier, now the DTs have worn off (joke) - and it helps that I haven't been shopping this week, so no opportunity to buy booze.

Been dry since Jan 21st. Staying off the booze until I've got back to 71kg. It's weird, but as soon as I stop drinking, I really don't miss it at all. Did about 18 months previously, which was fine except for a lapse when there was an Orval event at North Bar in Leeds, where they had Orval at ages from 1-5years. Was totally worth breaking my dry spell for that.

Absolutely 100% definitely worth breaking your dry spell for.

I discovered today that my local brewery (the one that hosts my audax event) is still open for takeaways and deliveries, so I feel I ought to do my bit to support them in these troubled times. I guess as long as I'm only coming off the wagon for beer that is actually worth it, that's more or less OK. It's the drinking out of habit, drinking too frequently and too much, and being indiscriminate about booze choices, that is the real problem for me. What you might call 'mindful drinking'.

Haven't broken my streak yet though. Will save it for the weekend.
