Dry July why I’m giving up alcohol for the month of July 


Have you heard of dry July before? Basically you sign up to not drink a drop of alcohol for the whole month of July! Whilst doing so your friends and family can donate money to support you. The money raised goes towards supporting people with cancer, such an incredible cause.

Recently being the human I am have fallen off my healthy lifestyle bandwagon, I have had a few personal things I have been going through and I know I have not been where I want to be lifestyle wise. Signing up for a challenge like this that makes me publicly accountable is the perfect way to ensure I hit my goal. Alcohol contains not only so much sugar and calories but is also terrible for your liver. We all know this right? For me cutting this out will help give me more energy to get up early in the mornings to go for a walk. Plus it will help save me money in the long run too. For July I will be swapping my wine and my G&T for mineral waters and being proud of myself for helping people who are in much greater need than myself. I really hope to start doing more activities like this where it is good for my health and I get to raise money for a good cause.

The people behind Dry July offer support through wellness support, comfort items when people are going through chemo, transport and accommodation, hospital furnishings and entertainment, plus much more. You can read about what they offer here.

Click here to see my page and I would love your support, even if it is a couple of dollars, it all adds up.

My goal is to raise $250, which would make me so proud.

Have you completed a Dry July before?

With love,

    Oh I’d be without drinking throughout the July just for the cause. We have dry January here in Finland, but well – here in Finland 90% that attemps to do that fails when the first weekend comes around.

    I wrote about booze abstinence in January (http://katnapped.com/sack-off-drynuary/) – I could not and most likely will never impose a prohibition on myself 😀 But I wholeheartedly support you for raising money for a charity (yay!) ??

  • Such a good idea and great way to raise money too. Good on you!

  • What a wonderful idea and great way to raise money! 🙂 I haven’t ever planned to have dry months but sometimes when I’m very busy in life I just don’t have time for drinking and couple times I’ve realized that I have had try couple weeks or even a month. Usually that doesn’t happen on summer though! But anyhow, it’s a good way to save some money.
