Dry January 2017December 12, 2016
- Weight loss
- Better sleep
- More energy
- Clearer skin
- Time – no more hangovers to sleep off!
- The sense of achievement for finishing your month
- The realisation that you’re actually just as awesome without the alcohol
And think of all the money you’ll save (the average person spends £50,000 on booze in their lifetime!)
It’s a pretty impressive list, but you’re not just doing some good for yourself, you’re part of a movement of millions of people looking to improve the lives of those around them too. You’re helping to create a culture of happiness, confidence and health that achieves far more good than just the break from booze.
If having a dry January makes you think you are experiencing problems with alcohol go to our Live It Well Alcohol page to get some hints and tips for getting help.
A lot of people don’t know what units actually mean in terms of what they drink – and therefore don’t know when they’re drinking too much! Why don’t you test how much alcohol you are consuming by using the online ‘Know Your Score’ tool or NHS Choices has an ap that helps you keep track of your alcohol intake as well as a lot of other advice and information: www.nhs.uk/livewell/alcohol/Pages/Alcoholhome.aspx
