Dry January is in full swing, ladies, and as a result Twitter is awash with posts from people debating the merits of a self-imposed alcohol-free month.
And like every Twitter thread, it's a real mixed bag.
Whether they're dismissing the notion entirely or embracing it with all their might, the inhabitants of the Twitosphere certainly have an opinion on it.
I just do not understand the #DryJanuary thing. Why torture yourself further, in the most bleak & miserable month of the year when you can console yourself with a large glass of Malbec?

Successfully survived my first boozy event of #DryJanuary without having any and I feel like I deserve a damn statue.

The great thing about giving up booze as a previously heavy drinker is the simultaneous 'giving up sleep' that happens with it Only lasts a week or so but forgot how rough the first week was… #DryJanuary

Day 9 of #DryJanuary:
– Uninterested in social activities
– Wondering why no one does #DryFebruary instead so we have 3 less days of suffering

At what point can one claim to have 'done' #DryJanuary? Asking for a friend.

I’m at my wit’s end right now and a glass of wine would really help. But it’s #DryJanuary and I’m no quitter.
