Dry January is the annual movement through which millions of people give up alcohol for the month of January.
Dry January is run by the charity Alcohol Change UK. We started Dry January because:
A month off is a great chance to get us all thinking about our drinking, so we can make healthier and happier decisions when it comes to alcohol year-round.
Dry January is an opportunity to make not drinking, whether for an evening, a month or longer, feel more normal. Because many of us feel under pressure to drink, or to drink more than we want to, and we think it would be better if everyone had more choice.
By fundraising for your Dry January you will be raising vital funds for Alcohol Change UK, to support our work to reduce the harm caused by alcohol in the UK. Every day 20 people in the UK die as a result of their drinking, and the impact of alcohol doesn't stop there - it affects families, communities, and in fact our whole society.
