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.
