Try "Dry January" This New Year

Many New Year’s Resolutions are about a permanent change, and that is what makes them so hard to keep. But making a change for a single month is more achievable and a terrific starting point for any changes you may want to make, which is why many are advocating “Dry January”.  

“Dry January” is the perfect way for your body and wallet to recover from an indulgent Christmas and New Year celebrations. Giving up your old friend alcohol for a mere 31 days will save you a few quid, lose a few pounds, and feel more energised and refreshed in the process. It also provides a great starting point for evaluating the role alcohol plays in your life.
