But no one said it was easy to put the champagne glass down, friends, which is why gathering some tips for dry January before you begin is a great way to plan for success.
I mean, think about it: Going straight from a holiday season filled with alcoholic indulgences galore to, you know, Shirley Temples, might prove to be a bit of a challenge. But there are a whole host of reasons why taking a break from booze can be a good idea, whether you're sober-curious in general and want to see what it feels like, or you just want to take a breather from imbibing so you can reliably wake up earlier without getting a headache.
Whichever way you slice it, choosing a dry January is a resolution that can have wonderful benefits for your health — benefits that might even extend well into the new year. Who knows what you could learn about yourself when you spend a little time keeping it real and sober with a seltzer sans vodka?
