Blog: Dry January – Jo Berry

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be issuing people’s experiences about their Dry January Challenge. Today Jo Berry, Domestic Abuse Coordinator gives us an update about her experience.

I survived my first Friday after work without a glass of red wine or two, mainly thanks to my husband who didn’t have a drink either!

The thing I’ve noticed about abstaining from alcohol is that I have found it easier to keep up my exercise. I hadn’t realised that my drinking could affect me mentally and psychologically as well as physically and be a contributing factor to my lack of self-control and motivation. I will definitely bare that in mind in the future!
