Midlothian Community Safety Partnership is encouraging people to give up alcohol for the month of January.
The challenge is part of a national campaign, run by Alcohol Concern, which aims to persuade people to give up alcohol for 31 days.
Giving up booze can make people feel healthier, sleep better, lose weight and ultimately, save money.
Last year, more than 17,000 people in the UK took part in Dry January, and surveys found that 72% of those who tried continued to drink at moderate levels six months later.
