Painfully Relatable Dry January Memes
Every year, people swear off alcohol in January in response to the weeks of partying over the holidays.
The idea of resetting your health and starting fresh in the new year is great, but it's easier said than done. Whether you're celebrating dry January or not, these hilarious memes are for you.
Respect, but also, can you not? How are we supposed to enjoy wine down Friday alone? That's just sad.
Dry January Does Have That Effect
You may not have much fun on Friday night, but at least you won't have a hangover on Saturday morning. That counts for something, right?
Being the Designated Driver Is Even Less Fun Than Usual
Being around drunk people is a lot more fun when you, too, are buzzed.

In the words of Harry Potter, "We'll take the lot." Cheers.

You Want To Be a Better Person. We Get It.
Really, we do. Taking better care of yourself is admirable. If you're going to talk for more than five minutes about why you're swearing off wine, however, you owe us a glass. Or a nice plate of appetizers, at least.
The Rewards Are Great, but at What Cost?
Not having a headache is nice, but is it as nice as happy hour after work on Friday? Debatable.
