In the UK and US, people attempt a month without drinking alcohol under the banner of Dry January, but in Czechia, February is the nationally recognized month for abstaining. Suchej únor (Dry February) is now in its 11th year, and this time is being held under the slogan ‘Not Drinking Is An Art!’
Suchej únor launched in Czechia in 2013, the same year that Dry January launched in the UK, and has only increased in popularity since then.
