Warning: Side effects may include better sleep, improved skin, loss of weight, saving money!
Start 2021 the best way possible and join in with the Dry January one-month alcohol-free challenge, or, challenge yourself to do 31 dry days starting from TODAY. Alcohol is linked with more than 60 health conditions including liver disease, high blood pressure, depression and several cancers. Cutting back on alcohol long-term reduces your risk of developing these conditions.
For the 31 days, why not swap alcoholic drinks for something softer and you’ll boost your wellbeing and energy levels, sleep better, lose weight and improve your skin. It might also help you re-evaluate your relationship with alcohol for the future to help you lower your risk of ill-health. For more information and support, simply visit: Dry January
