How To Stay Dry This July

How To Stay Dry This July
Taking part in Dry July this year? Here are some expert tips for giving up booze for a month and raising funds to improve the wellbeing of adult cancer patients by creating better services and environments for them and their families.

1. There’s strength in numbers 

Staying sober is much easier when you’re not going it alone. Recruit your partner, a colleague or a friend, or better yet, start a team.

2. Don’t become a couch potato 

If you usually head out on weekend, you don’t need to hang out on the couch now. Swap your wine for a soda water and lime and let everyone know why you’re not drinking – it’s a great way to get people to donate and support you.

3. Tell the world 

Whether you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or good old-fashioned talking, you’ll be surprised how many people want to support your Dry July mission. Lap it up.

4. Be opportunistic 

Now that you’re hangover free, you’ll be up early on the weekend. Use the time to go out for breakfast, try a new exercise class or catch up with a fellow DJ for an early walk.

5. Embrace the challenge 

Consider using July to make some other positive wellbeing changes and set yourself a goal, like training for a race or ocean swim.
