    I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner. At most I will have 2 but generally I won't have more than one bottle a week. I decided to give dry Jan a go, mainly because I need to lose quite a bit of weight, so would have to kick the wine anyway. 15 days in and I can't believe the difference, I sleep so much better, my skin is better and I've got lots more energy. Thing is I'm gutted, I love my glass of wine, now I'm wondering if I can go back to it when I know what it's doing to me.

    It’s a slippery slope! I think you have to be quite strict. I used to wait till the weekend but then I realised I had my best sleep at the weekend because I could have a lay in. This meant I was sabotaging that by drinking on those nights when my body could really rest and heal. It led me to think when is a good time to drink?

    So I’m pregnant now and haven’t had a sip since September! Missing it but will I drink next xmas? Yes:D but I’m not sure how to structure it. It’s true that you are a million times healthier for not drinking. Maybe I’ll just save it for social evenings or special occasions. xx

    If they just made decent non alcoholic wine, I’d be sorted.

    Ohhhh, I always tell myself that one glass of red wine every day (or every couple of days) is good for me.

    I might try this....
