Dry January? Doctors Say No

If you drank too much during the holidays, you may be tempted to get on the Dry January bandwagon. However, its supposed benefits are zero to none, according to health experts.

“It would be better to have two alcohol-free days each week all year rather than one month abstinence,” Ian Hamilton, lecturer of the Department of Health Sciences at York University said during an interview with Discovery News.

While trying Dry January is not exactly a bad thing, there will likely be pitfalls once February comes especially because a whole month of abstinence can lead to binge drinking.
