Not only can this save you money, but it can also raise money for charity as your friends and family can sponsor you via Just Giving and the money will go to Cancer Research UK.
How to get involved
The physical health benefits will be immediately noticeable and cutting down by just 1 pint a week will save over 1000 calories by the end of the month. Quitting alcohol completely for a month will give you more energy and help you to lose weight. There are also major long term benefits of abstaining from alcohol as it can help prevent heart disease and cancer.
Taking part in the dryathlon is a fantastic way to develop a healthier attitude to drinking. For many, alcohol is seen as an essential part of a good night out or the ideal way to unwind in the evenings. Going just one month without drinking will prove that there are alternative ways that you can have a good time. If you have a healthier attitude to drinking, then you will have a lower risk of developing dependence to alcohol.
