“Dry January” Could Be Good News For Your Overall Health
2020 was a record year for liquor sales across the state, even with people spending less time at bars and restaurants.
Now, at the beginning of 2021, many Iowans are putting those evening cocktails on pause to participate in “dry January.”
On this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe is joined by public and behavioral health expert Paul Gilbert for a look at the possible benefits of taking even a short hiatus from drinking. Also on the program, two Iowans who are participating in sober January recount their alcohol-free experience half-way through the one-month challenge.
