DRINKERS who vowed not to touch alcohol for one month have decided to delay the pledge for 30 days or so.
After enthusiastically embracing the idea of abstinence throughout October, thousands have now realised that the following month would probably be better.
Sales manager Martin Harper said: “October is not really a good month because of Oktoberfest which, on a cosmic scale, cancels out Sober October.
“In fact it’s best to drink heavily for the time being, what with the promise I’ve made not to touch a single drop during ‘No Drink November’.”
Office worker Eleanor Shaw also swore she would go without drink for a month. However, when she remembered she had children, she realised there was no option but to open a bottle of Pinot Grigio at noon.
She said: “Actually, I don’t think I’ll be ready by November. I might have to leave it until ‘Just A Lime And Soda For Me February’.“
