People are being encouraged to drink less this January as part of the national Dry January initiative which aims to promote a healthier lifestyle and give people the opportunity to stem their drinking habits.
The annual scheme is being run by Alcohol Concern and it is designed to give people the chance to make a healthier start to the new year and to recover from the Christmas break.
It was launched on Black Friday last year and thousands of people are expected to take part nationwide.
It is estimated that in Nottinghamshire, 21.2% of people are binge drinkers, slightly higher than the East Midlands average of 20.1%.
