I picked the wrong month to stop Tequila Shots! Haaa. Or, maybe not that funny. Seems like lots of folks I know announced they were starting a Dry January. Can’t blame them. After a super kruddy 2020, and more than likely a “mostly hammered” December. You know what I mean. Some of us went off the rails last month.
Now we see about 20% total fail rate, and it’s still early. 11% of drinkers pledged to go alcohol-free in January, according to a new survey. But 20% have had some drinks already . . . and another 8% have given up on the plan entirely. As in, “I’m never doin that again.”
Here’s the good news. Some have been able to stick with it. 72% say yes, they’re still alcohol free. 20% have had SOME drinks, but they are, quote, “still trying to cut back.” And then there’s that total fail rate – 8% have given up on January sobriety entirely. There’s always February people! Good luck with that.
