Story

Hello! I drink too much. I have done for a while, and it's slowly creeping up and up. Messing with the morning routine as I never want to get the gym and adding weight on. Terrible stuff. So. I heard about the Dryathlon and it seems as good a kickstart as any.. For a very worthwhile cause I'd therefore like to combine what will be an extremely difficult (too difficult I imagine. It's been a good while since I've managed 31 hours letalone 31 days) experience with raising some money for Cancer Research UK. Thus: My New Year’s resolution? I’m giving up alcohol. For January. For Cancer Research UK. I’m becoming a Dryathlete. All through January I’m not going to touch alcohol. Not a drop. So instead of buying me a drink, I’d like you to donate. Every pound helps Cancer Research UK bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. I won't slip off the wagon! Even during me and Naomi's anniversary next week. They offer the idea of a 'golden pass' but this seems a cop out of epic proportions. All or nothing I say. The Dryathlete’s Oath I promise that I shall take part in Dryathlon™, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern it, committing myself to a month without alcohol, in the true spirit of do-gooding, for the glory of Dryathletes and the honour of Cancer Research UK.
