Today I chat with Katey from Dry July to find out more about this amazing charity and how you can raise money to support people living with cancer. Back in October 2019, I went plant-based and gave up alcohol. Since then, I have noticed a huge change in how I feel inside and out. My skin is feeling smoother, I have a healthy glow and I have more energy than ever! Katey fills me in on the wonderful health benefits of giving up alcohol and how going dry for just one month can completely change your mindset on alcohol consumption. July is just around the corner, be quick and sign up for Dry July today!

Key Takeaways:

  1. Dry July came to life when three mates challenged themselves to give up alcohol for a month to raise money for a local charity. Their initial goal was to raise $3,000 but word soon got around and they managed to raise an astonishing $250,000! 13 years later, Dry July has raised $49 million and has over 40,000 people registering every year.  

  2. One month of no drinking can benefit your health in many ways such as, improved sleep, increased productivity, weight loss and best of all, no hangovers on a Sunday!  

  3. 78% of participants say they will drink less after participating and 74% change their outlook on alcohol consumption. 

  4. Participating is easier now more than ever. With so many amazing and delicious alcohol-free drink options on the market, you don't have to worry about feeling awkward without a drink in your hand at social gatherings.
