What is Dry January?

Dry January started in 2013 in the UK with Alastair Campbell, a columnist, and political strategist, talking about his past drinking, and columnist Peter Oborne trying out the month off booze.

In 2014 the University of Sussex started research on the benefits of Dry January and its lasting effects.

The latest research from 2018 reports that Dry January participants are still drinking less in August. Nine in ten people save money, seven sleep better, and three in five lose weight from just taking a month off.

In addition, there are benefits even for participants who don’t manage to stay alcohol-free for the whole month, showing there are benefits just for trying to complete Dry January.

Sober October 2017

Inspired by the initial challenge and still concerned about Bert’s weight and drinking, the four comedians announced the first rendition of Sober October in 2017. The original bet included only alcohol, although Joe raised the stakes shortly after by not smoking any weed during the month. On top of this, each of them had to finish 15 gym classes.
