Drink, being what it is, a baffling thing; for many of us, it seems much easier to give it up for a month than for a day.

One day at a time - that is all that is recommended even in Alcoholics Anonymous, yet we spurn that as being too extreme, preferring the 31 days at a time that is Dry January.

Thirty-one days - but definitely not 32.
