big self restraint

“Have begun big self-restraint programme with no drinks or smokes until 7.30pm and then only beer and wine till 10 or so. When I go out to lunch etc. I can have what I like. Works bloody well: I can now take a heavy day and feel all right the next morning.”
(Kingsley Amis toRobert Conquest , 1 March 1976).
