It looks like “Dry January” didn’t turn out the way most people had hoped.
Dry January has become an annual tradition in which people attempt to completely stop all alcohol consumption for the month. Some people made it. Others didn’t. A recent study shows that most people were able to stay “dry” for the first ten days. 4 percent stumbled on the first day, and 8 percent fell off the wagon on January 3rd.
