You go out, someone mentions drinks, and offers you a glass of wine. No such luck. What, not at all? O nce you realise that choosing not to consume liquor proves too much for many of your acquaintances to handle, it becomes clear that a more peaceful evening can be had if you avoid the subject altogether. After several rounds, no one else will notice that you’re still sober, anyway. No embarrassment, and no need for an early morning walk of shame. T he benefits of living without hangovers cannot be underestimated.

Ghosted: Susanna Reid, speaking to Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine, told of how a potential suitor ghosted her when she politely revealed to him that she had stopped drinking before a date pictured earlier this month.

Every time Valentine’s Day approaches closer and closer, being single hits me with a sense of panic. Am I single by choice, or have I just deluded myself into believing the farce that I am “focusing on myself”? I like to think that I could have a partner if I chose to have one, but it’s just not the right time for me. If I had a partner, I would definitely have significantly less material to write these narcissistic articles.

Obvious, but important. Brownie points for days. Teetotalers have no built-in excuses when it comes to cheating. Like a poem. Or sew matching costumes to win the Halloween contest this year. And if you also have a growth mindset, you need a partner with one. Grow together, not apart. Supes important in a relationship. And we give the best advice.

When I first went teetotal, I might as well have told people I liked to spend my evenings dressed as a fox, hiding in bushes, egging cats and screaming. I rarely hear that now. I could do it, though.
