We know a lot of people may have decided to give up on dry january with the new lockdown but we are still here to support you.
Smoking and drinking alcohol are very closely linked, with many people reporting that when they have a drink of alcohol they are more likely to resort to smoking.
Dry January is a great way to stop drinking and change your mindset on how often you drink, this in turn could make you think about how much you are smoking.
If you were to stop drinking, there are quite a few changes you will notice in yourself like:
- Having more energy and better concentration
- Get better quality sleep and wake up feeling more refreshed
- Clearer thinking
- Being more in tune with how much water your body needs
- Losing weight
Why not stop out the bottle of prosecco for a nice bottle of flavoured sparkling water? Try out a new alcohol-free beverage instead, if you want to try and cut down on your alcohol, there are plenty of options available.
