What are the health benefits of saying no to that extra glass of wine or beer? How about giving it up for a whole month?
In July, thousands of people choose to give up alcohol for the month as a part of the Dry July campaign, an initiative to raise money for cancer patients, their families and carers.
The money raised goes to invaluable services to support those affected by cancer including specialist nurses, transport to life-saving appointments, cancer centre improvements, comfort and support items and access to therapy programs.
Many people who take part in Dry July find they not only are supporting a worthy cause, but also enjoy other benefits including:
If going cold turkey for the month feels unachievable or unappealing to you, remember you don’t have to go in 100% to enjoy the health benefits of reduced alcohol intake. Just do your best!
Dry July began in 2008, when three mates Brett, Kenny and Phil, decided to take a break from alcohol in July. They were hoping to raise enough money to buy a $3000 T.V for their local hospital in the waiting room. The three men raised more than $3,000 for a TV - they raised $250,000. Since then, Dry July has raised over $73 million, and more than 290,200 Australians gave up alcohol to support the cause.
Whether you’re deciding to give up alcohol to raise money, doing it for your health or giving it a go.
You can use the money you saved to donate to the cause, and enjoy your fresh sunday mornings out and about.
