If you have been a regular drinker over Christmas it’s very likely that you will feel the benefit of a month free from drink.
And it’s more than just avoiding the dreaded hangover. Regular drinkers are more likely to be tired, late for work and more easily irritated in stressful situations. So it can affect your mood and concentration too.
By the end of Dry January you’ll be sleeping better, have more energy and chances are you’ll feel more confident too. That’s because at some point you will have had to exercise your will power and turn down that drink. And with time you’ll realise you are stronger and more resilient than you ever thought.

It may even lead to better blood sugar control if you are a diabetic. And early signs suggest a reduction in blood pressure too.
