Responses from readers to the question, "Where do you intend to be on New Year's Eve?"

On December 31, I'll do what I've done for many years in sobriety: I'll go to bed at nine P.M., sleep soundly, and get up the next morning at my usual time of five A.M. to go to work. No hangovers, no regrets. I work for the Post Office, and they always need people on January 1, and I get paid double time for holiday work. And even after fifteen years of sobriety, I still appreciate being able to have a good night's sleep.
