"The Dryathlon launch comes as a poll reveals 17 per cent of Brits find alcohol is the hardest thing to give up for a month. Ed Haspel, head of Dryathlon at Cancer Research UK, said: "Getting the nation to go dry for January is going to be a challenge for some, and it will take an element of willpower to succeed."
