The Daily Poll

Poll: Did you complete Dry January?

Tell us how you got on.

TODAY IS THE last day of the first month of the year. 

For many people, January is the month where they decide to refrain from drinking alcohol after overindulging over Christmas and New Year, or simply to start the new year on a healthier note. 

While it may not be for everyone, we want to know how those who took part got on.

Did you sail through the month without so much as a sip, or was being able to enjoy a pint in your local after 8pm last weekend too good to resist?

Today we’re asking: Did you complete Dry January?

Poll Results:

I didn't take part in Dry January (7451)
Yes, easily (2128)
I tried and I failed  (1308)
I don't drink alcohol  (1217)
Yes, but only just (441)
