    I can take it or leave it, either way. I drank a lot when I was younger but now that I am 50 I just don't want to anymore. Bleh.

      Good idea, before the silly season.

        For quite a long time (well before Primal) my husband and I have given up all alcohol from the 12th day of Christmas for one month. This was not for any particular religious reason but for health and expenditure after the holiday season and to return to a more 'normal' regime. It always works for me... but I quite like the idea of a November ban to loosen the hold of alcohol in general before the holidays. We are fairly European in our tastes and usually have a glass of wine with our evening meal in the week and perhaps a whisky at the weekend. But the Christmas period can be quite 'festive' here in England!

          I want to! I was just thinking about cutting out alcohol this month and I read your post. I went a few weeks without (longest without since I became a legal drinker) a couple of months ago and although it was tough at gatherings, I really felt good. Seems like a good month to do it again.

                Ha, I was just bitching about my hangover in my primal journal! I think I can definitely do no alcohol until Turkey Day, possibly the night before if I go out. I already went about a month and ended that a few weeks ago, so this should be easy I do cheat sometimes with pizza, bar food, etc... when I drink, but I think that the hangover is the worst part!

                  The only concession I've made in regard to alcohol is to drink beer less often.

                  I have 1-2 drinks a day 5-6 days a week. I'm now alternating between red wine and Norcal margaritas, with an occasional beer day.

                  I'm making too much progress to worry about becoming a teetotaler, which will never happen because it is not in my best interest.

                            I've actually liked having this challenge this month, which, in itself, is a hoot since I've always hated 'rules'.
                            9 days in and that fab tequila hasn't been touched. It helps that DH doesn't drink alcohol, and no company over, so far.
                            Funny how a primal lifestyle gives you strength on many levels.

                              Well, I didn't start at the beginning of the month, though last weekend mostly involved a few glasses of wine here and there. I'm onboard now. This should help my goal of dropping some weight this month - if I'm going to sabotage my diet with anything, it would be wine or whiskey.
