Dry January challenges you to go alcohol free for 31 days and sims to raise awareness of the effects of alcohol. It is the annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for the months of January. It is run by the Charity Alcohol Change UK.
Does it work – Yes. 72% of people who do Dry January are still drinking less riskily six months later. Giving your body a break from alcohol for January (especially after the heavy festivities of December) is beneficial for you overall health.
Employer Tip – Organise a staff event in January where no alcohol is allowed to help raise awareness and promote alcohol free activities.
