I'm not much of a drinker these days. I sometimes have a few pints on a Friday and occasionally go on a night out but despite having a laugh going out drinking with friends, I've recently been finding drinking less and less enjoyable.

Also over the last couple of years, I've been finding it takes fewer drinks to cause a nasty day long hangover and I'm getting a bit tired of losing half my weekend for the sake of a few drinks.

So to get back half my weekends in 2012 by stopping drinking to see if it makes that much of a difference to me. As it's New Years Eve, I'll be having a couple of drinks tonight but as of midnight, it'll beer-free all the way!

Happy New Year everyone!
