Dry January: Yes, You Can Make It through

This two-minute read looks at ways to get through January without resorting to a tipple.

If you’re one of the millions of Brits who vowed to stay off the booze this month, hang in there – you’ve only 11 more days to go!

Congratulations on making it this far, and remember, if your resolve is starting to wobble, you’re not alone.

Many people find that as the dark nights of January roll on, it gets harder and harder to resist the temptation to have a cheeky snifter or two.

But don’t give in; follow these tips and stay dry.

Think about the health benefits

You’re doing your body a big favour by taking a breather from booze. Not only is alcohol high in calories (and hence bad for your waistline), but it can also negatively impact your liver, heart, kidneys, nervous system, pancreas, and brain.

Schedule an activity

Don’t sit around moping – keep busy – especially at the times when you’d usually be pouring yourself a drink. Head to the gym, go out for a walk or run yourself a hot bath. Change up your routine so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.

Do the maths

Tot up how much money you’ve saved already by not drinking, and then calculate how far ahead you’ll be by the end of the month. Set yourself a goal that if you make it to 31 January without a drink, you can use this cash to treat yourself to a new item of clothing or a nifty piece of tech.

Talk about it

When your willpower starts to crumble, talk to someone about it. If you have a friend or family member who is also doing Dry January, talk to them. Alternatively, visit the Dry January group on Facebook and get support from people who have been there before.

Make the most of mornings

Revel in the fact that you wake up clear-headed and ready to take on the world thanks to your booze-free lifestyle. No throbbing headache, fuzzy head, or bone-dry tongue. You can now make the most of your day instead of hiding under the duvet feeling sorry for yourself.
