More people are partaking -- in "Dry January"

Can one month make a difference?

In 2012, a British charity issued a challenge to Brits: Take a break from alcohol for the month of January. It was a successful initiative that has since caught on in America.

Starting fresh in the new year

Many people celebrate the holiday season by allowing themselves to partake more than usual in food, desserts and alcohol. January, with its New Year's resolutions, is a good time to take on a challenge to avoid alcohol for a month.

The challenge also provides a concrete and reachable goal. Vague ideas of lowering alcohol intake are often ineffective. And many people do not want or need to abstain from alcohol long-term.

But a limited time without alcohol can help. The benefits of avoiding alcohol for one month may include:

  • Losing weight
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Sleeping better
  • Saving money
  • Breaking a daily drinking habit

Avoiding the consequences of excessive alcohol use

As a law firm that regularly handles consequences associated with drinking to excess, including drunk driving and divorce involving addiction issues, we support the individuals who choose to take on this challenge.

It takes about three weeks to break a habit, so avoiding alcohol for one month now can give you the tools to help you to avoid dangerous behaviors such as drinking and driving in the future.

Beer is everywhere in Colorado

Colorado's national reputation is as a state that enjoys marijuana. But craft beer is a booming industry in Colorado. At the beginning of 2019, beer also became available at some grocery stores, so it is more available than ever. Perhaps that is why Dry January is becoming more popular - it gives consumers control over their alcohol intake.

Enjoying alcohol use

You do not have to want to bring back prohibition to participate in a monthlong initiative. Alcohol and marijuana both can be relatively benign when consumed with moderation. Whether or not you choose to participate, we hope you have a safe, healthy and happy year ahead.
