Dry January is run by Alcohol Change UK, aiming to educate people about the dangers of drinking too much alcohol and encouraging people to give up alcohol for a whole month.   It has become an annual initiative where people give up alcohol for the month of January.   Dry January started in 2013 with 4,000 people.   By 2018 over 4 million people were taking part.

So, one week in, if you’re doing Dry January, how is it going?   Or if you’re eeeking the festivities out and yet to start, how about giving it a go?   Even a couple of alcohol-free days each week will be good for your health.   

 Here at the Mouth Cancer Foundation we support limiting alcohol intake as there is an increased risk between drinking and mouth cancer.  Drinking to excess can increase the risk of mouth cancer by four times.  Those who smoke and drink are up to 30 times more likely to develop mouth cancer.
