Dry January Origins
Ever since January 2013 people all around the world take part in dry January, limiting their consumption of alcohol. It was the brainchild of Alcohol Change employee, Emily Robinson, who had cut out alcohol for the previous two Januarys. In 2011, she did it to prepare for a marathon and in 2012, it was just out of choice.
In 2013, when Dry January started, 4000 people signed up and it was found 6 months later that 7 out of 10 people had dramatically decreased their alcohol intake. In the following years, there was an increase in sign ups each year, and in January 2020 over 100,000 people chose to sign up.
Over the last 7 years Dry January has been a great way for people to raise money for charity or to detox after an indulgent festive period, needing or wanting to reduce their intake for health and personal reasons. For whatever reason it is done, that one month can change lives and help towards a healthier, more positive future.
