I had a bad hangover in November and vowed 'never to drink again' - as so many people often pledge the day after the night before. I told my family and friends this and my sister in law recommended Dry January. The second, and I suppose biggest thing that made me do it and keep on doing it was my parents telling me I wouldn't be able to succeed. That made me even more determined. I really enjoyed the challenge of Dry January and loved the FB page set up with people sharing their stories and encouraging one another. I had loads more energy and would feel like getting up and going jogging at the weekend rather than waiting for the pub to open or having a hangover. I will definitely be doing it again next year.
