Dry January

DRY JANUARY – 31 DAYS OF ALCOHOL FREE BLISS

 

Did you know more than 200,000 people go to work with a hangover each day and over one million people are admitted to hospital in England each year due to alcohol-related harm? That’s why Bedford Borough Council is asking residents to sign up to The Dry January Challenge - 31 days of alcohol free bliss.

 

Last year nearly 4,500 people across the nation signed up and took part in Dry January. Feedback from participants showed; some lost weight, some slept better, almost everyone saved cash and said they’d try to reduce their drinking throughout the rest of the year. 

 

Executive Member for Adults Services, Colleen Atkins, at Bedford Borough Council, said: “The Dry January Challenge is a fantastic way to get healthy after the indulgent festive season.  We are encouraging people to take part and challenge themselves to a month without alcohol in order to benefit their health.”

 

Can you take up the challenge and banish the booze this January?  Kick-start 2014 with a healthy punch and with no hangovers, you may even find energy you never knew you had.
