Anyone here commit to a "dry January?" 

I didn't, per se, but I committed to a dry nine months when I got that positive pregnancy test back in July (ha!). Not that I'm counting down the 10 weeks until I can enjoy a glass of Cabernet. Seriously though, it hasn't been that hard for me to give up booze. I find that after a few days or maybe a week or so without drinking, I no longer really even care about it any more.
