I don't drink
It was great to meet attendees at the www.joinclubsoda.co.uk mob camp last night and have the opportunity to share my experience with them. I hope they found it useful. It was interesting to hear peoples reactions to actually doing a dry January, something I would never have been able to do as I would have focused exclusively on my next drink come midnight on the 31st. I think a couple in the group were doing the same, but then they were looking to cut down their drinking and not quit once and for all. A number of people also said how tired they felt despite expecting to have a new lease of energy course through them. A lot of people say the same and I wonder if it is not the body just relaxing from all the alcohol stress and taking time to rejuvenate, I certainly know my poor body needed a considerable dose of renewal. I never felt over-tired when I quit but then I was changing from someone crippled with gout and other ailments to someone who could run, swim and have great fun, so any improvement was going to be massively noticeable. Good luck to everyone doing Dry January.
