West Virginia psychologist Dr. Barbara Harris said that babies with high alcohol dependence should not try to give up without medical supervision due to the possibility of seizures or other dangerous side effects.
Do you want to sleep better, feel better, gain energy, get rid of weight, have better skin and concentration skills, and save money by doing one thing this year?
This, which is becoming more popular in the UK since it was introduced five years ago, has given some of the participants more and more, according to a new study by the University of Sussex.
The simple act gave up drink for one month, Dry January. Still interested?
Researchers have found that participants reported having regained control of their alcohol consumption for several months and that they were still drinking at the end of the summer.
The study followed 800 people who were dry for January 2018 and found that the average number of days they drank in August dropped to 3.3 from 4.3 per week and the average number of drinks per day low, as well as the frequency of drinking throughout the month, 2.1 times, 3.4 times on average.
These changes in alcohol consumption have also been seen in participants who have not managed to remain alcohol-free for the entire month, albeit a little lower, said psychologist Richard de Visser.
The study by the University of Sussex showed that between 70% and 80% of participants reported an improved drinking relationship in August, being more in control and learning more about when and why they were drinking and discovering they did not need a drink to enjoy themselves.
Between half and more than two-thirds also reported a general improvement in health, sleep, energy, weight control, concentration, and skin.
More than 2,800 respondents who registered for Dry January completed the online study in January 2018, approximately 1,700 in February and 800 in August. The results are based on the respondents' voluntary responses, not on scientific research.
But the head of the UK's nonprofit alcohol, who said he was expecting one in ten Britons to drink or drink 4.2 million people to dry January this year in the UK, said the participants could change their lives by making people healthier and more happy.
A Vancouver psychologist, who specializes in counseling people with substance abuse, said alcohol drinkers should not try to give up without medical supervision because of the possibility of seizures or other dangerous side-effects.
But a chance to break the usual alcohol consumption may be helpful to help babies become honest about their use, especially if they are not sure whether their drink is moderate or not, said West Barbados psychologist Harris Harris.
"There is a saying (in recovery circles) that people who do not have a drink problem do not ask:" Oh, do I have a problem with the drink? "She said," If you think you have to give up, maybe you have a problem that you should look at. "
Meanwhile, Canadians who missed or failed to quit smoking on January 1 will receive another blow in the national non-smoking weekday from January 20 to January 26, which includes Weedless on Wednesday, January 23, and was held in every year since 1977.
Smoking rates among Canadians have fallen in recent decades, but health officials are concerned about the growing practice of vaping, which may or may not include nicotine inhalation.
Vaping can be used to safely destroy cigarette smokers from habit, but the United States administration for food and drugs released statistics late last year that showed the use of vaping among adolescents was up 80 percent in 2018 over 2017.
Health Canada reported that in 2017 the consumption of electronic cigarettes rose marginally in 2017 in 2015 for users aged over 15, the most current statistics provided by the BCC. Lung Association.
It also showed among 30-day electronic cigarette users that 65% were smokers, 20% smokers and 15% smokers, and 58% of those who did not smoke were 15-19 years of age.
Under 30% of users in the past 30 days have used electronic cigarettes with flavored tobacco, while most 24 years use fruit flavors. However, 64% of Canadians in 2017, who have never tried an e-cigarette, reported the last nicotine used.
