Evening Poll: Are you doing Dry January this year?

Are you bothering?

YOU MIGHT HAVE noticed but it’s January. 

It’s the time of year people give up things and take things up. Recently, Dry January has become a thing – abstaining from alcohol for the whole month of January to somehow cleanse you of that mountain of stout you drank in December. 

Many people are doing it – many don’t care. 

So, this evening we want to know: Are you doing Dry January this year? 

Poll Results:

No chance (3766)
Yep - it's going great  (2624)
No interest  (1511)
I don't drink  (1289)
Yep - but I've broken it  (1005)
