Dry January 20, 2014

Dry January is an important initiative to stay alcohol-free and reduce the risks of harm caused by alcohol.  Each day's calendar page can be found on the Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud Facebook page and on Twitter @AlcoholAuthor. See more about quitting in 2014 on a feature at All That's Written.
