Dry January is the UK's one-month booze-free challenge that helps millions reset their relationship with alcohol every year. And it's a great way to kick start a healthy lifestyle, save money, lose weight, sleep better and improve your mood.
Lots of us feel like we’re drinking a bit too much, or too often, or just like we could do with some time off - it's the perfect way to reset your relationship with alcohol. It only takes three weeks to break a habit, so this could be your route to happier, healthier drinking long-term. Here are a few reasons to try dry...
Kick the booze this January and feel healthier and happier as you sleep better, your skin improves and you lose weight. Keep a track of those fitness goals and find out how your sleep quality improves with a tracker like this Fitbit Versa 2 Smart Fitness Watch in Copper Rose £129 from John Lewis & Partners.
The average person spends £50,000 on booze in their lifetime. A couple who are both regular drinkers could save a whopping £276 a month - just think what other treats you could be indulging in right here at TRAFFORDCITY!
You can also make a difference to others by donating some of what you save to charity. Find out more here.
Through giving up alcohol for a month you do your body and mind a lot of good. The Alcohol Experiment is a 30-day programme with a difference. Each day, it will show you a new way of thinking about booze, and ask you to look a little closer at why we drink, what we get out of it, and whether it's really the alcohol that's giving us what we want.
Available from Waterstones and WHSmith £12.99.
