Don't drink water: Fish make love in it.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.

I have read somewhere that every drop of water that comes through your tap has flushed many 1000's of toilets.. better sticking to beer

It tastes awful. That's why you have to drink it cold so your taste buds are too chilled to detect just how awful it is.  Although that probably applies to  all lagers.

Anyway, I didn't know it was "Dry January",  I thought it was "Veganuary".  Which was a pity when I realised it wasn't Vaginuary. Never mind, I'm countering the vegans with 4 months later on.... Septemburger, Octoburger, etc. etc...

Don't forget that beer is one of your “5 a day” essentials.Beer is made from hops and hops is a plant.Therefore beer is a vegetable.Thinking about it,5 beers a day should see as fit as a fiddle.👍

Do herbs and spices count?

Just thinking of the botanicals in my gin  :shrug:  :obscene-drinkingchug:

Edit: I have a few that are 'berry infused' and I typically drink it with real lemonade or orange juice.  :lala:
