The new year is here which means we will all jump at the opportunity to improve ourselves and our health through New Years Resolutions.
A 2015 study indicated that as many as two-thirds of Britons (64%) created a resolution for themselves, with the most common being to lose weight, quit smoking or give up alcohol.
The latter is so popular that it’s actually been turned into a public health campaign fondly known as Dry January.
What is Dry January?
Dry January is a public health campaign that encourages people to abstain from alcohol. It was introduced by Alcohol Change UK as a means to solve the alcohol problem that has been affecting the UK for decades.
In 2017, millions of people participated in the Dry January campaign, which illustrated its success in encouraging individuals to remain sober.
