Dry January

Dry January is the annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for the month of January.

About This Campaign

WHAT IS DRY JANUARY?
Dry January is the annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for the month of January.

Doing Dry January:

  • Enables you to take control of your relationship with alcohol.
  • Drives a conversation about alcohol: why do we drink it, what does it do, and how can we reduce the harm it can cause?

Alcohol Concern brings together an amazing network of individuals and organisations, including partner charities who work on issues associated with alcohol. Together, we will reduce the harm caused by alcohol.

WHY DO DRY JANUARY?
Taking part in our campaign is a chance to ditch the hangover, reduce the waistline, and save some serious money by giving up alcohol for 31 days. Read more about why doing Dry January is a good idea.

BUT DOES IT WORK?
You can read the published paper on Voluntary Temporary Abstinence From Alcohol During "Dry January" and Subsequent Alcohol Use.

PRE-REGISTER FOR DRY JANUARY 2019!
Until then, why not download the app? It can support you to track and cut back on your drinking all year round.

Just like being physically active, drinking less alcohol is really good for your health too. Why not drink less and move more this January?
