DRYATHLON
Previous | 12 | Next

Why on earth did I think not drinking for a month was a good idea?

My body feels like it has been robbed of a natural additive and to top it all I have lost the grand total of two pounds for ten days of complete abstinence

Given I have done bugger all with sponsorship is it really bad form to give in this weekend?

To make things worse I think the missus may crack regardless of what I do

Cheers

:D I'm not doing a sponsored dryathlon, but I haven't drank since NYE and was not planning to until Feb. Unfortunatly a girl (definitely/I'd like to think so) I know is moving back to Oz and having a leaving do on the 26th so I feel obliged to go.

I am planning to hang in there until then, although the temptation is always there of a weekend.

Stay strong brother! Do something wholesome like hiking in the hills instead.;)

Don't understand this phenomenon. If you're not able to drink in moderation then faux charity events are probably not your ideal first priority.

Where does anyone say they are not able to drink in moderation?

Nobody specifically here Duncs, I'm just saying that to me someone saying they are actively giving up the drink for a month implies that person is drinking too much to begin with.

I'm not a big drinker, so I don't see the fascination in getting bladdered personally.

I don't think so, I don't get bladdered much these days, but I do find a couple of ales in a decent pub a pleasant way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

For me it's mostly about reducing my calorific intake after the eating and drinking of Christmas, and also reminding me that alcohol is not that important.

I'm been on one since I was 17 ;).

Anyone who finds going without alcohol for a month a genuine challenge has a problem.

There's a few things I couldn't go without for a month - does this mean I have problems? :(

Agreed. Dinny, could you give up taters for a month? :D

You seem to have a problem with people that drink alcohol, why is that ?

You lot are all old and have kids, of course drinking is not something worthwhile. For us busy socialites, we get invited to social events in bars.

Anyway, I know I'm wasting my breath so I'll leave it.:roll:

You seem to have a problem with people that act as if a months abstinence is a massive sacrifice

I meant the crisps, I wasn't being quite so stereotypical! :D (a potato based snack is far less offensive!)

Fair point - I do likes me crisps!!

Still, there's probably very little spud on your average bag of crisps..
