From cutting back during the week to completing the 31-day challenge, or having the motivation to try again – all personal accounts are welcome.

Amanda Jupp, County Council Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, said:

“Congratulations to all our residents who took part in this year’s Dry January campaign. Whether people reached Day 31, or achieved their personal goals, I think they should be proud of taking the first step to leading a healthier life.

“I would urge everyone who gave Dry January a go and tested their resolve to please take a few minutes of their time to answer questions around their experiences. It would be great, for example, to learn about the types of support that helped if the going got tough!”

The survey will enable the council’s Public Health team to capture residents’ views and help shape future Dry January campaigns.

The survey closes on Wednesday 28 March.
