End of January brought forward to tonight, drinkers confirm

26-01-18

PARTICIPANTS in Dry January have confirmed that the end of the month has been moved forward from next week until 5pm this evening. 

The technicality that there are five-and-a-half days to go is largely considered irrelevant because time passes faster once you can have a drink anyway.

Helen Archer, from Stevenage, said: “Glad that’s over.

“It was a long month, I don’t mind saying, but nonetheless I’m glad I did it. It’s important to prove you can do these thing. Willpower.

“But a month’s a month, that’s the deal, and months don’t just end messily in the middle of a week.

“Probably I won’t go crazy. I might have one, but not more. I don’t have to. It’s just I could if I want and nobody can stop me, because that’s over now.”

Archer added: “I could call in at Bargain Booze on the way home. If nobody’s going the pub.”
