I would not consider myself a big drinker but I am a habitual drinker. I am considering giving up as I don't really get anything positive from it any more. Hangovers come more easily and I don't have the luxury of slacking off for a morning. I live out in the countryside now so I am very dependent on driving - taxis in and out of town to socialise would be expensive. I have had several events, especially over Christmas like the office Christmas party where I chose to drive and not drink and I don't feel like I missed out on anything. The opposite in fact as I went home at a reasonable hour and was able to get up the next morning without a bother. Anyone else have similar experiences or advice?
