Highest Daily : 30 (Scotland v All Blacks all day session with Pricey and his mates. This may actually be an underestimate !).

Love the optimism in this sentence....

10th year of doing this for me, here are the scores on the doors for 2017:

Total : 1457.9; still high, but 5% (71.1) down on 2016
Average per day : 3.99 (target of 4)
Monthly Average : 121.5
Best Month : March, 84.5
Worst month : December, 190.7 - Christmas, office party etc.
Longest dry spell : 4 days
Most consecutive wet days: 20 (summer holiday)
Highest daily total : 22.9 (staff Christmas party in December... again)

Observations:

- my Mon-Thu dry rule slipped; Thursdays seem to have become the new Friday..
- less months over target (4) than 2016 (7)
- I drink everyday whilst in Spain, but moderately
- I finished 2.1 units under my annual target; less than a pint of crap lager!
- my xmas staff party intake was up 5.4 units on last years

When I started doing this, the NHS recommended alcohol intake was 3-4 units per day for a male (less for a female). This has since been revised, down to 14 units per week regardless of sex https://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/alcohol/Pages/alcohol-units.aspx That's basically halving my previous daily target of 4... a tall order.

January hasn't commenced too well, I was in Spain until 8th, and have a Southern Softie meet tomorrow in London.

There's probably apps for the phone I would imagine.  You could log as you sip
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

We’d only been on the booze for about an hour when Pricey had his Platoon moment.  ;D
