Dry January- A Month Without Alcohol?
Times Now News
Are you planning to cancel out the bottle when the New Year hits? Can you think of the last time you went longer than a day without alcohol? Do you think it would be possible for you to do? Well, it looks as if some took the opportunity to see if they could. Back in January of this year, a near 800 participants were involved in a study known a Dry January where they were asked to not consume alcohol throughout the first month of the year.
The study has had a fascinating amount of results. In surveys conducted prior to the start of the University of Sussex’s study, it was said those 800 participants drank an average of 3 to 4 days out of the week. Dr. Richard de Visser, Reader in Psychology at the University of Sussex, has taken charge in the study since its start. “The simple act of taking a month off alcohol helps people drink less in the long term: by August people are reporting one extra dry day per week. There are also considerable immediate benefits: nine in ten people save money, seven in ten sleep better and three in five lose weight.” 57% have also reported having had better concentration and 70% have improved their own help.
So what’s the longest you’ve ever gone without a glass? We don’t mind a comment or two.
