Are you taking part in Dry January?

Dry January 2021

2020 was a difficult year for all of us, so why not give 2021 the best start possible and give Dry January a try? It’s the UK’s one month long alcohol-free challenge and it promises to help you get your ‘you’ back, get your energy back and get your calm back. Sound good? Then keep reading!
According to the Alcohol Change website, a whopping 86% of people who take part in the challenge save money; 70% believe their sleep improves; and 65% say that their general health improves. But it goes deeper than this. According to the British Medical Journal, a month off alcohol lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of diabetes, lowers cholesterol and reduces the levels of cancer-related proteins in the blood. Wowzers!
If you want to give it a try (and why wouldn’t you, with all those benefits?) then the official Dry January campaign has an app that acts as a booze buddy for January and beyond. It helps you track the units, calories and money saved by passing up the vino. You can set goals and earn badges along the way, to help keep you motivated.
Since the campaign started in 2003, it has come a long way. Four million people took part in last year’s effort, so why not join them this year and get your 2021 off to a positive start?
