‘Dry January’ helping some people reflect on bad alcohol habits
“Dry January” was created to encourage people to give up alcohol for the entire month.
Alcohol can cause more than 200 different diseases – including liver disease and heart disease, according to doctors.
Dry January gives people a chance to take a break and reflect on their drinking habits.
Some of the benefits can be improved mood and energy levels as well as lower blood pressure and weight loss.
Doctors don’t recommend trying dry January if you are a heavy drinker, as it can cause dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
