New Year’s pretty much consist of parties and soirees, resulting to everyone’s annual hangover come January. However, several health charities such as Cancer Research UK and Alcohol Concern urge people to abstain from drinking any sort of alcoholic beverages for the whole thirty-one days of January.

The “Dry January” campaign encourages participants to become "dryathletes" for at least a month while being sponsored by friends and family members. According to Emily Robinson, director of campaigns at Alcohol Concern, "We're challenging people to take part in Dry January and try giving up booze for 31 days, and if it sounds like a big ask you're exactly the person we want to join us and have a go. It's not about never drinking again, it's just the perfect opportunity for all of us to take a breather and get thinking about our drinking. We think people will feel better, sleep better, save money and they may also lose weight.”

So if you’re up for the month-long challenge, visit the official Dry January website and sign up for this awesome and relevant campaign. After all, who doesn’t want to be healthy this new year, right?

On the other hand, we’ve also come up with some fresh and alcohol-free liquor recipes you can try in case you can’t stand not “drinking” anything this month. Check ‘em out:
