TIME TO STOP?
Hands up who’s doing Dry January? Well, for the first time ever, I am. It’s not for weight reasons – although like our cover stars and the lovely Linda Robson (see page 10) I’m hoping to shift a few pounds. It is because, I’m finally admitting to myself, it’s time to rethink my relationship with alcohol. Like Ab Fab’s Patsy, the end of 2018 ended in a haze of parties and overflowing glasses, so we’re ‘on a break’ at least until 31 January.
And why not? Almost a third of our millennials don’t drink the hard stuff at all (our new ‘Snowflake’ columnist Millie explains why on page 88), so surely I can make it to February? By then, I hope to be a few pounds healthier and wealthier. That’s two good reasons to give it a go at the very least.
