"I actually realized I slept better, I felt great, I had a lot more energy," 47-year-old Stuart Elkington said after he made the decision seven years ago to give up alcohol while trying to start a family with his partner.A 2017 poll showed that 57 percent of 7,100 respondents said they had drunk alcohol in the previous week – the lowest level since the annual survey, conducted by the Office for National Statistics, was launched in 2005, when the figure stood at 64 percent.That has translated into a rise in the number of Britons who say they do not touch a drop of alcohol – just over a fifth of those questioned last year, compared to 18.8 percent 12 years earlier.According to its instigators Alcohol Concern, 5 million Britons took part last year.Sales of beer and cider containing less than 1.2 percent alcohol jumped by nearly 28 percent in 2017 compared to 2015, with demand for alcohol-free wine rising 8 percent, according to consumer researcher Kantar Worldpanel.
