    Got a bottle of champagne for the two of us for tonight but tomorrow's Dry January. Having done this once, I'm very sure I can do it again. I really doubted myself last year, but this year I'm feeling a lot more confident.

    BTW, would love to know your best tea tips. Tea, hot and cold, really kept me going last January. I have an insulated metal cup I carry it around in, and have pondered getting one with a diffuser, like this one but just can't decide if it's worth it or not. Any good ideas from tea drinkers are much appreciated. I also have every kind of diet soda known to man stocked in, LOL.

    Hugs, @forestdweller1 Was your account hacked, or did you spend $$$1000s on your daughters??

    Don't worry, I wasn't going to change the thread!

    Started with this thread late December ... not sure yet about all the plans for a Dry January. That is not my personal target. I remember when losing weight my pattern did not include so much alcohol. In the past 2 years at my house we have gotten into the bad habit of a bottle or 2 of wine each night. Plans to change that in 2019. Back to my quest for 4 nights per week AF; usually targeting M-Th. 16 AF nights per month. 3rd week (MWTh) each month will be the real challenge with 2 book clubs and another alumnae meeting that all include wine.

    Dec 31- AF Happy New Year! Looking forward to a great 2019!

    Happy New Year, all! It’s been a while for me but I am now ready to significantly reduce my alcohol intake again!

    Will try to check in daily. Good luck everyone!

    Dry January here too! I did it last year and loved it. My goal is to at least double my AF days over last year. We have had a tough few weeks - our kitchen flooded, (currently gutted and drying out) and I have to figure out a plan for a new one - our washing machine broke the same day as the flood! And the worst of all- somehow a rat got into my Subaru and pooped everywhere inside - I’m seriously like what is happening?!? I’ve coped with wine - but no more!
