Dry January is the UK’s one-month alcohol-free challenge. This year, it isn’t about giving anything up – it’s about getting something back. Get your fun back. Get your energy back. Get your calm back.
Whether you’re a weekend drinker, a ‘social drinker’ or just like to unwind with a glass of wine after work, cutting out alcohol can have a number of long-term benefits for your health. If you get involved this year, you’ll save money, feel more energised – and you might even lose weight!
