Drinkers are being encouraged to swap alcoholic beverages for a cuppa during the month of January.

National charity Alcohol Concern is running Dry January to challenge people to stay off the booze for 31 days.

The campaign is being backed by pharmacists in Dacorum who have a wealth of advice and leaflets on offer to help people avoid temptation.

Drinkers are being urged to skip the alcohol aisle when shopping, take up a new hobby, and enjoy a cup of tea instead of a pint.

Herts community pharmacist and chairman of the Local Pharmaceutical Committee, Girish Mehta, said: “we are actively involved in supporting people to cut back on alcohol, give up smoking and helping your manage common illnesses and ailments.”
