The hustle of the holidays is over, the New Year has come and gone, and now we’ve entered the time of year where we can all be thankful we live somewhere with mild winters as our friends up north complain about the cold and the snow.
Except for today. It’s cold right now.
Even if the winter is milder here, we still like to hibernate through January. It’s one of the year’s quietest months, and it gives us the opportunity to detox from the hell we put our bodies through during the holidays. Recently we learned that many people choose to detox by celebrating (“celebrating”) Drynuary, or Dry January.
The rules of Drynuary are simple –abstain from booze during January. John Ore, Drynuary leader and expert, explains his reasons for observing this brief stint of prohibition, including mental clarity, a respite from the gluttony of the holidays, a valuable exercise in self-discipline, better sleep, fewer calories, and in some way, a spiritual ritual. Starting the year off with a dry month just feels like a healthy thing to do, both physically and mentally. It’s also nice that Drynuary participants have the community of others through Twitter and Instagram (#Drynuary) to share ideas for non-alcoholic beverages and activities.
Here at the Glass House, we were thinking…Drynuary means abstaining from booze, but all other vices are fair game. And obviously we have plenty of products for smokers and tokers. If you’re taking a break from alcohol this month (or even if you aren’t), don’t forget to stop by and pick up a new pipe, vaporizer, or other accessories to distract you from that pesky prohibition decision you made! We’ve got you covered.
