I just really really enjoy a glass of wine. Thinking about wine, about where to get it, how much to stock up on, what food it will go with, what to open and so on takes up a serious amount of my waking hours. But I reckon I can give it up with no issues at all, certainly temporarily. I may get the White Burgundy shakes after a few days but I'll work through it. How hard can it be?
So, with a few definite exceptions towards the end of the month I am going to keep my hands off the cellar and out of the drinks cupboard. It will all keep, indeed much of it will actually get better, and hopefully I will shed the excess pounds as quickly as I appear to have put them on. Will you see me jogging around Wanstead? Unlikely at this point, but let's see if this does anything first.
Have you any concept of how much damage you are doing to yourself quaffing with such alacrity? I myself had a compromised liver after a decade of just 125 ml of red wine per day, so I stopped totally. Ethanol, that's all it is. Poison.ReplyDelete
Why must you always be so negative? *Delicious* poison.Delete
I never do dry January, why suffer? I was 60 last birthday and numerous tests have so far not shown liver damage. Sorry for Ric above but there is individual variation - and I rarely drink more than half a bottle 3 or 4 times a weekReplyDelete
Well I have lost a kilos in a week, which seems to me to be a measure of unequivocal success. I did have a headache for several days last week which is apparently quite common.Delete
Switched to tea for January and have put on weight!!!!!ReplyDelete
January is now best described as damp...Delete
