A Flexible Approach to Alcohol Reduction

A Flexible Approach to Alcohol Reduction

If committing to a full month of sobriety feels overwhelming or unrealistic, Dryish July offers a more flexible approach to reducing alcohol consumption. Dryish July is a modified version of the popular Dry July campaign, allowing participants to set their own goals and boundaries when it comes to alcohol.

The concept behind Dryish July is to encourage individuals to be mindful of their alcohol intake and make conscious choices to reduce it, even if they don't completely eliminate it for the entire month. This flexible approach recognises that different people have varying targets on mindful drinking or reducing intake.

Why Consider Dryish July?

Reducing alcohol consumption has numerous potential benefits, regardless of whether you choose to fully abstain or opt for a more flexible approach like Dryish July:

Improved health: Excessive alcohol consumption can have detrimental effects on your physical health, including liver damage, increased risk of certain cancers, and cardiovascular problems[1]. By reducing your alcohol intake, even temporarily, you can improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Mindful drinking: Engaging in Dryish July can help you become more aware of your alcohol consumption habits. It encourages you to think deliberately about when and why you choose to drink, leading to more mindful decisions about your alcohol intake.

Personal growth: Participating in Dryish July challenges you to step out of your comfort zone and develop healthier habits. By setting your own boundaries and working towards them, you can experience personal growth and a sense of accomplishment.

Tips for a Successful Dryish July

If you're considering Dryish July, here are a few tips to help you make the most of this flexible approach:

Define your goals: Decide on the level of alcohol reduction that feels manageable for you. Whether it's cutting back to a certain number of drinks per week, limiting drinking to certain occasions, or exploring alcohol-free alternatives, set clear goals that align with your intentions.

Seek support: Share your Dryish July goals with friends or loved ones who can provide support and encouragement. Having a support system can help you stay on track and make the experience more enjoyable.

Find alternatives: Discover alcoholic options that provide moderation control, or non-alcoholic beverages or activities that can serve as substitutes for your usual drinking habits. Experiment with mocktails, infused water, or engaging in hobbies that don't revolve around alcohol.

Reflect and reassess: Throughout Dryish July, take time to reflect on how your modified alcohol consumption is impacting you. Assess how you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally and consider whether you want to continue these changes beyond July.

At Just a Glass Australia we love getting feedback from our customers in how our range has had a positive impact on them socially and in their weekly drinking habits. 

"I reduced by drinking after COVID lockdowns and at the same time found Just a Glass Australia. I enjoy my one glass of wine a week and now having a premium option that is also vegan means I can enjoy it and sip my single serve without the waste of a whole bottle and without drinking more than I want to. I actually really look forward to my one glass a week compared to when i would have a drink every day. This one glass is now enjoyed and looked forward to over a meal on a Friday night and has completely changed my relationship with alcohol. Such a great product and the best service and quality"
