A local man has decided to take a break from dry January to get “hammered” because it’s Friday. 54 year-old Brian Delaney said he believes he deserves it after not drinking for a whole week.
“I went fierce hard at it over Christmas so I decided to do dry January this year and thankfully I’ve stuck to it. I didn’t think I would but I’ve surprised myself by not having a drop all week. That’s what you call will power.
“Obviously I’m having a few tonight but that’s because it’s the weekend and that doesn’t count. I mean come on, what kind of weirdo doesn’t drink at the weekend?”
Brian said he’ll be back on the wagon on Monday and has every confidence he’ll complete dry January for the first time in his life.
“Yeah I’ve never tried to do it before to be honest but it’s time I started taking care of myself a bit more. Obviously I’ll have a nice few tomorrow as well because it’s Saturday. And of course I’ll need a cure Sunday but just a few cans and maybe a bottle of wine.
“Hopefully I can keep it up and by the end of the month I’ll be a new man, ready to have a few drinks again in February. Let’s face it, I’ll have earned it.”
