With Dry January trending, it’s a great time to explore some other drinks to help scratch that itch without the booze. And we’ve got a slew of products to help you do just that.
Dry January—a month-long feat to be sober—officially launched as a campaign in 2013 under the organization Alcohol Change UK, as stated by Time. However, the practice has roots that extend as far back as 1942, when Finland had their own “Sober January” to help in the war against the Soviet Union.
Today, consumers all across the U.S. are participating in Dry January. Statista reports that younger alcohol drinkers are more likely to take part. More specifically, 75% of those between the ages of 21 to 24 years old claimed they were at least somewhat likely to participate in Dry January, compared to 31% of drinkers 55 and older.
