We’re four days into Dry July, where people pledge to go without the booze for a month. It’s become common-place in the past few years, and it’s been extended to people who only want to commit to being dry-ish, and even those who only want to do part of the month. 
 
One person who knows all about the struggle, and benefits, of giving up the booze is journalist and blogger Lotta Dann. She quit drinking in 2012, started a blog and online community to focus on the issue, and has written three books on the issue. 

The most recent focuses specifically on womens’ drinking, called The Wine O’Clock Myth.
