Esther Mobley offers her opinions on dry January in the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’m unmoved by arguments against Dry January that focus on the negative impacts they’d have on the wine industry: It’s not my job to defend any industry, and wineries ought to have to win customers’ business in sober-curious times as well as indulgent eras. In fact, it’s in the booze industry’s long-term interest that its customers become introspective about their health. The reason I’m not doing Dry January, however, is because I consider it a more meaningful achievement to practice responsible drinking year-round.”
