Go Dry This January And Begin To Feel Healthier And Happier

Dry January is the UK's one-month booze-free challenge that helps millions reset their relationship with alcohol every year.

Being alcohol-free for 31 days shows us that we don’t need alcohol to have fun, to relax, to socialise.

Put simply, Dry January can change lives.

Alcohol is linked with more than 60 health conditions, including liver disease, high blood pressure, depression and seven types of cancer. Cutting back on alcohol reduces your risk of developing these conditions.

In fact, alcohol is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability for people aged 15-49 in the UK.

Join the four million going dry this January:

  • Reset your drinking
  • Save money
  • Have more energy
  • Feel great
