With all its busy festivities, December often turns into a heavy month with lots of people drinking above average limits of alcohol. Dry January is a campaign run by Alcohol Concern which challenges people to stop drinking for a month.
Adrian Jugdoyal, the Clinical Lead on Alcohol and Drugs Services at the Hepatology Department in the London North West Healthcare Trust joined Radio Harrow to talk about the health benefits of taking part in Dry January.
People who have taken part in the initiative previously have noticed significant health benefits from weight loss to better sleep – many even noticed how much money they saved from cutting out the booze.
The campaign asks people to get sponsors to support participants which will raise funds for Alcohol Concern. They are a charity which provides support and advice to anyone concerned or suffering with alcoholism whilst campaigning to reduce general alcohol consumption in the country.
