Stages Of Doing Dry Jan

Christmas is a mere memory, but all the alcohol and hangovers we survived? Not so much. So January rolls around and we decide, this is it. It's time to go dry. If you've settled on a soft drink month ahead, we feel you. Here's all of stages you're gonna go through guys and girls...

"I don't need alcohol. It doesn't define me. I can have a good time without it" - delete as appropriate... 

Telling Your Friends

"But you can still drink at Alex's wedding right?"

The Social Life Realisation 

So taking on Dry Jan was all well and good until you checked your calendar. You've got four birthdays, two meals, a wedding, leaving do and that's before payday and the 'let's go for one after work' lies. What now?
