What Is Dry January?

Dry January is a movement that encourages people to abstain from drinking alcohol for the month of January. The goal is to help people reset their relationship with alcohol and improve their overall health and well-being. Participants are encouraged to take a break from alcohol and focus on healthy habits, such as exercise, meditation, and drinking plenty of water. Many people participating in Dry January report feeling happier, healthier, and more productive - so it may be worthwhile doing yourself. Dry January is a great way to kick off the new year with a renewed commitment to self-improvement, after what may have been an overindulgence during the December holidays.

Giving up Alcohol is Hard

Alcohol is addictive and habit-forming. It can be difficult to stop drinking for many reasons. Many people experience withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, irritability and cravings when they stop consuming alcohol. Additionally, alcohol is deeply ingrained in social situations and those long-standing habits can be difficult to break.

5 Reasons To Do Dry January

  1. Improved health: abstaining from alcohol for a month can have significant health benefits, including improved sleep, increased energy levels, and weight loss.
  2. Increased productivity: not drinking alcohol can help improve focus and concentration, leading to increased productivity at work or school.
  3. Better quality of life: giving up alcohol can help improve relationships, reduce stress, and increase overall happiness.
  4. Financial savings: not buying alcohol can save a significant amount of money over the course of a month.
  5. Setting a positive example: participating in Dry January can inspire others to make positive changes in their own lives and can help reduce the stigma surrounding alcohol addiction.

According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 95,000 people die from alcohol-related causes every year making it the third-leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
