Dry January is an increasingly popular post-festive trend that sees participants try to forgo booze throughout January.

The scheme was first launched in 2013 by charity Alcohol Change to act as a fun challenge in helping people cut down on their drinking after December's excesses.

The premise is a simple one - if you're taking part you are encouraged to give up alcohol for one month throughout January.

Alcohol Change advise that dropping alcohol is a chance to have more energy, a healthier body and better sleep as well as saving money. In the UK 20 people a day die from their drinking habits.
