Some Friendly Advice
If you think it might be a good idea to detox after the holiday craziness of December (followed closely by your birthday "week" in January), choosing February as the month in which you stop drinking (February, of course, being the shortest month), yet you are the type of person who tends to get a wee bit snippy at the smallest provocations (tourists who stop in the middle of the sidewalk; subway riders who try to enter the car before letting people off; taking creative direction from the marketing department), then I'd suggest sticking with the sauce...otherwise, you'll be living in Crankyville for 28 days.
