    Default Dry July

    Hey there, anyone keen to support each other for dry July. I thought I'd put any money I would have spent on alcohol to the official fundraiser.

    Sorry just wanted to say I always hate the dry July concept because it's my birthday. Why not dry August or September, lol.

    Good on you for doing it though. What charity are you supporting?

    It doesn't have to be July. I did Feb Fast and a lot of people do dry January.

    When I looked it up, it was for cancer research. I don't drink a massive amount, but thought I could/should give it a go to stay dry for a month! $ donated is a bonus

    I thought I would do dry July... But mostly as an example to my children.. I never get drunk, I always make sure I am right to drive, just in case, but I have this attitude, where if something is on, I have a drink. Like, "oh, it's a birthday party! One drink", or, out for lunch, just one glass of bubbles, Friday night, a drink. It's the weekend, have a drink.. Well, it all adds up to a lot of drinking!

    I feel like I'm in this culture of drinking, not to get drunk, not even really to celebrate anything, just drinking because it's the "done" thing? I don't want my kids thinking that this is everyday behaviour, so, I thought dry July would be a good start..

    I think dry July can be your choice of abstinence. Like chocolate would be harder for me right now!
