So Very Un-Australian

Starting today I will not consume any alcohol for a whole year.

Not sure on the reason but good for you :) I don't drink at all. I stopped about 8 years ago. I have the occasional sip of wine of my husbands but that's it really.

Sounds reasonable to me. Paul and I rarely drink, which made it very easy to stop altogether when I fell pregnant.

Its weird how it seems to make people even more defensive than veganism though...

cristy, oh noooooooo! I haven't thought about peoples reactions yet.

Vegetation, I have a few reasons. I don't drink often, and it only takes a little bit to make me feel sick and I guess I don't really feel the need to socially either. I don't particularly like our binge drinking culture. Plus, it sounds like it is going to be a bit of a social experiment.

I went from drinking heavily (as an undergrad) to drinking very rarely in a very short time--basically a flight between US and Australia. Since (all but) stopping, Andy and I have decided we don't really like the process of paying butt loads of money to be hung over the next day. And he often rants about binge drinking culture, even though we were both a part of it for at least a few years ;)

Good luck!
