For me, every month is alcohol-free., 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 explores how the behavioural lifestyle change could reap long-term health benefits.
I may be a bit biased (ever so slightly), 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 1600+ days, ANYONE could give it up for 31!Believe me, when I say this if I could give up drinking alcohol for the past 1600+ days, ANYONE could give it up for 31! #soberoctober #alcoholfree #soberliving Click To Tweet
