Does eating Christmas pudding mean you've fallen off the wagon?

I had some for dessert...there must have been half a bottle of whiskey in it....

I'm thinking I'll do a dry January; I didn't drink much over Chrimbo as I was sick and/or working, so that was a good deterrent, plus the older I get the less patience I have for going out at all anyway.
I was looking at One Year No Beer the other day, has anyone tried that?

Jaysus seeing my earnest post this time last year about hangovers and quitting boozing for good.

That said, I drank less than I ever have this year. I'm now a proud three pint wonder.

i don't like having to drink only orange juice most of the time when i'm out but fizzy drinks are yucko.
having said that i don't go out much.
businesses hate serving water unfortunately.
actually if i go to gigs i avoid drinking anything as much as possible because i have a 2 hour 20 minute journey home and don't get home until 3:20 am.

Inspired by Benny Cake’s update in the smoking thread, my update is that I am still off the booze. And also not dead (except on the inside, which is unchanged).

No idea how long it’s been, just quit that time two or three years ago – somewhere back in this thread - and never went back on it.

One of the best things I’ve done as an adult. Everything else is easier; from health to money to relationships.
Ymmv obv.

Fair play to y’all that love your few pints and long may you sink them, but for those considering quitting as a life improvement, it’s a very possible route.

Fair play, glad to hear it's working out for you. Definitely a lot more people I know doing it lately, but then I do know a lot of big drinkers...
