I am once again doing Dry January.
Pretty much for the same reasons, feeling healthier etc.
But also to make me feel like I have some degree of will power and control over my life.
The best way to get through it is to avoid pubs (they generally hold no appeal when sober) so I tend to do that.
Last night though I went bowling.
I’ve only once bowled sober and that was when I had a huge hangover so technically I was still drunk.
It was hard work, out of 8 of us, 3 of us were abstaining.
I thought it’d be fine, the bowling would take my mind off the beer, but it didn’t really.
We got through it, but agreed not to go bowling again until Wet February.
Oh, there had been much theorising over whether beer affected your game, but I’m consistently rubbish so I couldn’t tell.
