This story was published in the New Year and I’m only just getting it up on the site, despite being very proud of it. As a seasoned non-drinker myself these days, I loved celebrating these women, all of whom quit drinking only to see their lives blossom.
The average Brit spends A YEAR of their life hungover, when you add up every headache and fry-up. Pretty crazy, huh! But there is a growing trend for leaving binge drinking in the past and instead embracing more fulfilling and meaningful ambitions and pastimes. Katie stopped binge drinking, and therefore late night pizza marathons, and lost 9st. Heloise switched the late night parties for rock climbing, knitting and walks on the beach. And Karen decided to ensure she never missed another day’s work thanks to a hangover. After she quit the booze, she got a promotion and her career has been thriving ever since.
A little inspiration for all the party animals out there – drinking is fun, but not drinking is even better!
