Does the thought of this gif make you not want to try a month of sobriety?
It doesn’t have to be that way (and spoiler alert: it’s not!).
For me, every month is a sober month. But for others, Sober October is a month to hit pause on the booze and explore life without hangovers for 31 days.
What is Sober in October?
Sober October is a charity event where people agree to go alcohol-free for the 31 days of October while raising money for organisations such as MacMillan Cancer Support.
The challenge isn’t about giving up drinking for life (although, some people ultimately choose to!). The Sober October challenge encourages a change in drinking habits and to explore how the behavioural lifestyle change could reap long term health benefits.
I may be a bit biased (ahem), but life without alcohol is pretty enjoyable. I highly encourage giving it a try.
And believe me, when I say this; if I could give up drinking alcohol for the past 576 days, ANYONE could give it up for 31!
I’ve decided to dedicate the month of October to offering support to those looking to change their relationship with alcohol.Believe me when I say this, if I could give up drinking alcohol for the past 576 days, ANYONE could give it up for 31! #soberoctober #alcoholfree #soberliving Click To Tweet
