Did you know going alcohol free for 31 days can not only benefit our health and wellbeing, but also people who are affected by cancer?
About Dry July
Initiated by Brett, Kenny and Phil back in July 2008, the original goal of "Dry July" was to raise enough money to buy a TV for a hospital’s waiting room. A decade and more later, Dry July is now a campaign that has inspired more than 250,000 Aussies to go dry, raising $60 million for people affected by cancer, and funding projects at more than 80 cancer organisations across Australia that help improve the comfort, care and wellbeing of people affected by cancer.
The Benefits of Going Dry
According to the Dry July Foundation, 80% of Australian adults drank alcohol in the past year, and we spend an average of $34.2 per week on these dancing juice. While moderate consuming can be fun and relaxing, over-indulging can raise a series of health issues, including poor sleep and concentration, mood swings, high blood pressure, and it can even cause damage to our liver, heart, brain and nervous system in the long run.
That being said, giving up booze for a month can in turn improve the quality of our sleep, lower blood sugar, lower our calories intake, help us save cost, amongst other benefits. Click here for more information.
Bodhi's Take on Dry July
While we’re closed due to the health guidelines from NSW health, we can’t wait to introduce our three plant-based Dry July mocktails once the restrictions are lifted. All infused with ALTD Spirits, Sydney’s first and internationally award-winning alcohol-free spirits, these drinks are not only delicious and vibrant, they are also guilt-free and cruelty-free!
