WHERE DOES DRY JANUARY COME FROM?

The initiative started in Finland, where it has been customary since World War II (see this blog ) to stop drinking alcohol for a month. It spread to the Netherlands via England, where the term Dry January also comes from. It is difficult to say how many people are now participating. We do know that more than 40,000 people had registered for the Dry January module of IkPas. An initiative that we wholeheartedly support.

WHY SHOULD YOU STOP DRINKING ALCOHOL FOR A MONTH?

We get this question often. We never force this on anyone. It is important that you support your choice. As experts, we noticed that it changed our view of alcoholic beverages. While you often reach for a beer or wine on a birthday, you will do this more consciously after Dry January. Drinking alcohol is no longer on autopilot. You will really notice that you are fitter if you don't drink, that you sleep better and that you will get much more out of your weekend. That insight can come in handy later in the year, when you have a drink again, and they will never be taken away from you again.

WHAT IS A GOOD SUBSTITUTE FOR BEER WITH ALCOHOL?

There is a good chance that you have already drunk a non-alcoholic beer such as Heineken 0.0. Some people think it's fine, others find it very dirty. If you belong to the latter category, we would recommend going for an alcohol-free IPA . With IPAs with alcohol you notice that they are often very bitter. With an alcohol-free IPA, that is not so bad. The bitterness is often a nice addition and masks the absence of alcohol. This way you still have a drink with a kick, but one that doesn't give you a hangover.

DO I HAVE TO DRINK 0.0% WITH DRY JANUARY, OR CAN I ALSO DRINK 0.5% ALCOHOL BEERS?

You make up the rules yourself. There are people who detox from alcohol very strictly and go for 0.0. There are also people who switch to low-alcohol drinks. The main thing is that you stick with it and that it is a positive experience and not a negative experience.

If you have any questions about Dry January or about low-alcohol or non-alcoholic beer in general, you have come to the right place. We are happy to give you advice. Send an email to info@ondernulpunt Vijf.com and if you participate, we wish you the best of luck!

THE 4 BEST TIPS TO GET THROUGH DRY JANUARY

1. Find others who are quitting at the same time as you. Always useful to share experiences and catch each other when you unexpectedly feel like having a drink.

2. Do not bring alcohol into your home, but do have tasty alternatives. If your drinks cabinet is up for grabs, move it somewhere else (for a while) and empty your refrigerator (temporarily). You can often store it in the shed or your basement or crawl space.

3. Make it a matter of principle. Make sure that not drinking (temporarily) is a rule that you are willing to adhere to. This helps you to say NO more easily at a party or a drink and to keep your back straight when you crave (or think you crave) a glass of wine or a beer after a long day of work. We recommend that you do not isolate yourself from social activities, but rather participate in them. Experience what it's like to be sober. Do you like it just as much? Will you last the same amount of time? This insight can also be extremely valuable.

4. Do things you normally don't have the energy for

Want to exercise on Sunday morning or take a long walk in the woods? Your day will be a lot longer if it doesn't start with a huge hangover.
