Dry January

14th January 2021

Dry January at No3.

New Years Resolutions have been popular as long as most people can remember. But Dry January is fairly new. However, it’s extremely popular. According to Alcohol Change UK, “Dry January started in 2013 with 4,000 people. It's come a long way since then, with over 100,000 signing up and 4 million taking part in 2020.” That’s probably because it’s a fairly easy way to cut back on spending and caloric intake at the same time.

As reported by Self, “your general health may improve. You could see how your body feels without booze. You might sleep better and feel more energized. Your immune system may be in better shape. You might lose some weight. [And] you might revaluate your relationship with alcohol.” So, it’s not a surprise so many people opt to participate. We’ve got some tips to make it a bit easier for you.

• Tell your friend that you’re going dry for January in advance. That way no one is surprised and they can support you.

• Lock up the booze in a liquor cabinet and give the key to a friend who supports your choice.

• Each week, take the money you would have spent on booze and put it in a dedicated savings for a big treat when you’ve finished.

• Plan activities and events where booze would not be common like bike rides, breakfasts and church lunches.

• Track your weight during the journey and record it in a place you see every day, for motivation.
