A recent study found that partaking in Dry January helps people stay sober, even months later. Dry January is a health initiative conducted each year in The UK.
As dry January draws to a close, if you did take part, you may be currently considering the effectiveness of the exercise for you personally.
The good news is that a study conducted in the UK found that people who attempted to abstain from drinking alcohol in January 2018, as part of the public health campaign in that country, continued to drink less alcohol in the following 8 months.
Whether you’re abstaining completely or just cutting down as part of your 2019 resolutions, it’s always wise to drink moderately and be responsible.
