    Is anyone giving it a go? If so what are your motives? What are you going to find hardest?

      Have a few bits of alcohol left over from the holiday season and will finish it off in order not to be tempted! Won't be the full 31 days but as soon as it's gone it'll be dry time until the end of the month. Liver could do with a rest and a bit of repair I think! Won't find it hard, as a rule I don't drink from Sunday night to Friday evening anyway.

      I did a dry January in 1991. It still hasn't finished. Go for it - you will save a fortune and feel a lot better.

      Was toying with the idea, but then my office decided to send me on a week long training course in Prague on 14th, so absolutely no hope at all of doing it

      Is that a new sort of party game involving bondage equipment and the like?

      Had my last drink on 2nd March 2013 (after beating Huddersfield 4-1 at home!)

      If you can conquer these 2 things, youll be laughing:

      The thought of going out & not drinking is always 10 times worse than the night itself. Once you’re out - the night is always as good as if you had had a drink, honest!

      Find yourself a non alcoholic drink that you actually enjoy! It’s harder than it sounds as the non alcoholic beers (in this country anyway) are god awful. It really adds to the challenge if you’re stood at the bar, not wanting anything on the menu - so find a lime & lemonade or whatever that you will actually enjoy, it makes the night out so much easier!

      The money I’ve saved as a result of not drinking is significant & I get to spend more time with my son, rather than suffering in bed all weekend with a hangover, so I wouldn’t go back but the feeling of wanting a beer doesn’t go away (especially at the football!)

      Best of luck with it.
