Refusing from Alcohol for a Month Brings Lasting Health Benefits

refusing from alcohol brings long lasting health benefits

According to recent British research, giving up alcohol for just one month may bring lasting health benefits. Researchers report that people who didn’t drink the whole of January in 2018 had higher energy levels and healthier body weight.

For research, a team of scientists analyzed data collected during Dry January initiative through online surveys. In total, the researchers examined data from 2,821 participants.

The lead researcher Dr. Richard de Visser from the University of Sussex says: “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 10 people save money, seven in 10 sleep better, and three in five lose weight.”
