    Product Description

    101 nifty tips, some more serious than others, for getting you through a January without booze. A book of 101 tips for people engaged in the increasingly popular Dry January movement, in which you give up alcohol for the whole of January. Tips range from the practical ('Put a lock on your drinks cabinet and give someone else the key') to the less practical ('Deliberately get infected with an illness requiring a monthlong course of antibiotics') and from the sensible ('Keep a daily total of all the money you're saving') to the silly ('Unfriend anyone on Facebook with a birthday in January'). A brief introduction looks at why it's a good idea to forego booze for a month, and will also address the thorny issue of when Dry January actually starts (can you have a drink after midnight at your New Year's Eve party?). The early tips focus on getting started and building up momentum, while the last few will be especially designed to get you over the finishing line with ease. It suggests places (and people!) to avoid during your tipple-free month, and gives healthy, positive habits to take up to distract you from the thought of what you're missing. Practical and inspirational but with a dash of irreverent humour, with this book going dry for a month couldn't be easier! Word count: 4,000

    About the Author

    Writer and journalist Stephanie Glass is a hardened Dry Januaryist, with 20 years’ experience under her belt. Every year she finds its cleansing and detoxifying effects wonderfully stimulating, and one of these years she is determined to make it to the second week of January. Having tried every self-help guide available and found them all wanting, she has finally decided to write her own. This book is her latest attempt to crack Dry January once and for all.
