    Quite enjoying it at the moment, but I suspect that is because it's different, and over the period from my birthday (beginning of December) to NYE I was supping more than normal I'll be bored of the sobriety by 27th and ready for a few real ales when I call it a day and go and watch the mod band in my local.

    I didn't try as I have no willpower.

    I brewed a fairly dry Saison New Years Eve, it's only just gone into bottles though, so won't be drinking any during January.... :thumb:

    We lasted two days,,, then friends(??) called around... Then I 'found' 20L of an experimental session ale that I wouldn't chuck out. It's 6 months old and fooking perfect with my cider. Arggghhh,,,

    I have committed to running 1000 miles this year though, I will raise sponsorship for prostate cancer car and McMillan to remember friends I miss.
    I do pay the ferryman,,,

    I would say I've not touched a drop but I did have a sip out of a trial jar yesterday to make sure I didn't have to tip it. Not had a drink but will have brewed 80 pints during the dry Jan.

    I had a day in the pub on Friday and although I wasn't drinking I had a good laugh all day despite getting slaughtered by the chaps. We were in the Spoons in Gracechurch St. EC3 and when I am drinking again I'm going back there and I'm going to annhialate half a dozen pints of the Erdinger Bruin they sell on draught. It is the nicest draught beer I've had anywhere.

    Been off the booze since before xmas,taking various medications. Relented a few nights ago and had a stubby of my own brew but that's it. Still on various tablets including tramadol so not really a good idea to be drinking. At present it looks as though it will run into feb as well:(.
    Would be brewing but no point yet,too much booze to drink as it is!!!!:mad:

    I've always found alcohol and Tramadol to be a most agreeable combination. I especially like the dribbling and subsequent couch-lock that it invariably induces.

    Will likely be dry through to the end of March. Have also decided to eat much better as I was eating way too much junk through the last half of 2017.
