Abstaining for five weeks would buy a £218 two-night stay in Amsterdam. But those with the discipline to go ten-weeks could book a £435 five-night holiday in Portugal’s Praia da Rocha.

If you could make it to 17 weeks you could fund seven nights in Naples at £740. If you have got exceptional self-control a full year off drink will buy an all-inclusive seven night stay in Jamaica’s Montego Bay at £2,263 in January 2021.

Researchers assumed a weekly £44 habit of eight pints of beer and one bottle of wine per couple bought from a pub or bar. They said extending dry January may not work for everyone but a new year resolution is easier to stick to if you have a holiday on the horizon.
