Story

Now I like a drink like most of you. 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’ll be donating my drinking money and if I happen to slip off the wagon, I’ll chuck in an extra £15 to make up for it. Cheers. 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.

I think you're doing well mate. To be honest you've never been so quiet! Does that mean we only ever hang out when we drink?! Fair enough.

Best of luck mate. I've tried it before and managed until about the 3rd. For you it depends on whether you have any WHU shaped sorrows to drown!
