Many people on social media say they want to cancel "Dry january" because of the chaos on Capitol Hill.

But clinical psychologists are encouraging people to keep at it.

Dry January is an annual challenge to refrain from drinking alcohol for the whole month.

Experts say if you drank this week just treat it as a pause.

One slip up doesn't mean you have to completely throw away your goal.

Not drinking alcohol for the month could lead to many health benefits like improving organ health.
