Fenland Alcohol Project Group is supporting the Alcohol Concern Dry January campaign this year. We would like organisations across Fenland to display the attached poster clearly in their offices, workplaces and services from early December onwards until the end of January. Dry January encourages people to take a month out from alcohol and enjoy the benefits of having a break from drinking. By seeing how beneficial a break from alcohol is, people will have the time and space to evaluate the amount they drink, giving them the confidence to make healthier choices during the rest of the year. Benefits of Dry January as follows:
- People can lose weight – a small glass of wine has 125 calories!!!
- Save money
- Have better sleep and more energy
This is not suitable for people who have a strong dependency on alcohol but for people who would like to try having a month alcohol free who would normally drink and is aimed at staff in organisations and service users. People can sign up for Dry January at the following webpage:
The County Council is looking for people to volunteer to be a Dry January Champion. All you have to do is sign up yourself and encourage others to have a go. Please could you let me know if you would like to be a Dry January Champion.
