They are encouraging residents to give up alcohol for a month.

Bexley Council will be supporting the national Dry January campaign run by Alcohol Concern.

The campaign is aimed at social drinkers who might be drinking too much, too often.

The challenge is to stay alcohol free for 31 days.

The Chief Medical Officer for England recommends that everyone should have at least two to three days a week off alcohol and states that one or two drinks a day can increase your risk of several cancers including liver, oesophagus and breast cancer.

Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Leisure, Cllr Alex Sawyer, said: “Going dry this January is the perfect excuse to reset drinking habits and improve your health.

“Even if you decide not to go completely dry, having a drier January will benefit you. It’s a great way to start the new year!”

For more information please visit www.dryjanuary.org.uk or call 020 8303 7777 and ask for Alcohol Services.
