The study was conducted so researchers could get a better understanding of people behavior and personality after taking a month off from the booze. Researchers also wanted to know if the outcome of the “Dry January” would have a lasting effect on the subject future drinking behavior.

Reports from one month and six months after the study, over 60% of the subjects studied stated that they drank significantly less.
