AUSTRALIANS' love affair with grog is so great they'd rather give up sex, their car and their friends than lay off the bottle for a month.

When quizzed by charity FebFast, one in five drinkers said they would prefer to go without sex than booze, while twelve per cent admitted they would ditch their friends over alcohol.

Vote: What would you give up for a month?

The same number said they'd opt to give up driving for four weeks if they had to choose between their wheels and liquor and 30 per cent said they would rather toss their mobile phones.

FebFast, which works to highlight the dangers of drugs and alcohol, questioned 1006 people in the lead-up to a campaign that encourages Australians to give up drinking during February.

And most believed they had the willpower to meet the challenge.

Three-quarters of those surveyed said they would be able to stay sober for 28 days.

But others totally snubbed the idea, with one in 20 showing just how much they love a drink by revealing they would rather go without sleep for the entire period than not pick up a bottle.

People aged between 20 and 69, from all states and territories, took part in the online survey, conducted over three days in December.
