Dry January is complete. The beer has remained unquaffed, the wine has remained unsuppted, the raki has remained stoppered in the fridge. (Where it may well stay - ever drunk raki?)
As for the benefits - I'm sleeping a bit better, my weight has dropped (although I've also been hitting the gym like a fiend), and my skin looks fine. On the other hand, I can't say it's been a really huge difference. But not a bad one.
Mainly, I think I have learned how much I really like beer, and that orange and soda is not an adequate substitute.
Then again, orange and soda doesn't attract advertising like this or this, so I guess it's swings and roundabouts. Onwards to Tuesday night, and the ceremonial First Pint of 2015. I can taste its sweet, refreshing nectar now.
