STRASBOURG, FRANCE - MAY 18: Italian students from the Primo Levi Technical Institute of Vignola in the Modena Province, toast with glasses of beer in a pub during a school trip to Strasbourg, France to visit the European Parliament on May 18, 2004. School trips can be a sort of initiation trip for teenagers, where they are introduced for the first time to alcohol and drugs. Many times they don't sleep for the whole trip. The trips often allow the students to get to know each other better. If one is considered "different" than the group, it can be a nightmare experience for the teenager. Mainly the teenagers are only interested in clubs, shopping and having a pizza instead of the cultural aspects of the school trip. (Photo by Marco Di Lauro/Getty Images)

A new study found that kicking off 2019 with a Dry January has health benefits! Taking just one month off drinking helps you drink less for the year! It may also help you sleep better, lose weight and have better skin! 

Boston.CBSLocal.com says that the study showed that people who gave up drinking for the first month of the new year reported that they drank less eight months later! One of the doctors from the study said:

“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.”

The article also says that 70% of participants slept better after giving up alcohol for a month while 60% lost weight! More than half of the participants reported better skin and 90% say that they saved money after giving up alcohol for one month.

Even if you can’t make it all the way through the whole month alcohol- free, there are still benefits but to a lesser effect. Read more on the study HERE
