Why sign up for Dry January?
Feel as though you need a little encouragement?
You don’t need to be told alcohol is bad for you, but even if you don’t feel you drink a lot there are a lot of health benefits from cutting it out.
You’ll sleep better
Have nicer hair/skin
You’ll save money
It could also kick off healthier habits as 80 per cent of people who took part in Dry January in 2013 told Alcohol Concern they planned to cut down on their alcohol consumption for the rest of the year.
Plus it could help you stick to those New Year resolutions, especially if they include healthy eating and more exercise.
Alcohol Concern’s Dry January encourages people to avoid alcohol for 31 days and aims to talk about, reflect upon and ultimately curb risky drinking behaviours. It is a simple, accessible public health intervention, encouraging people to experience a month without alcohol. The campaign is aimed at social drinkers whose alcohol consumption may have “crept up on them”.
