Why Dry January is the Worst – Everup

I thought about doing a Dry January, but then we were at The Wayfarer and had a couple of cocktails, and then Angus, where I consumed one beer, and I decided against it.

I don’t drink often and when I do drink, I’ll have two – maybe three – beers, at most. I have zero tolerance. Unless, of course, I’m in my apartment having a birthday party and people are bringing wine over – then all bets are off (that happens when your bed is within 20 feet of where ever you might be standing). But that doesn’t happen very often. (I also like to eat my calories rather than drink them.) 

I have no idea whether the concept of Dry January is actually offensive to people who are for-real sober, 24/7. It’s an interesting idea and one that I’ve never heard discussed before. 

Instead of giving up the occasional beer, I’ll stick to having it… while going to the gym, doing yoga, and eating vegetables. It sounds like a good compromise.
