Sober October? What are the Benefits of a Month Alcohol-Free?

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to stop drinking for a month? Maybe you’ve thought that an alcohol detox would be a good idea but weren’t sure if you could pull off thirty days sober? Wouldn’t it be a great idea to take a break from the booze before the drinking season starts in earnest in November? Come join us for Sober October and we’ll be your cyber support network. You can read more about us Here and join  Here. But first a bit of inspiration …

If the idea of going sober for 30 days sounds to you like cutting off an arm ….
Fear not!
These are some of the benefits that you may well feel in as little as 30 days alcohol-free : ( and even more so in October with 31!)

1 – Having your mornings back (heck even your evenings!).
2 – Having clarity on what you have done or said the night before.
3 – Being able to live up to promises you have made – including being more present with loved ones and yourself.
4 – healthier body and mind.
5 – saving LOADS of money.

Unhungover mornings are definitely my number one.
Complete reduction in my anxiety.
A clear head
More time for me
Learning to love and respect myself
It’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Life once again has potential.
You can do this. 😘

Why Feel Trapped in Your Routine, Get Inspired! Stop drinking for a month and you may achieve :

Headspace, spontaneity, good mental health and SAFETY – I feel safe wherever I go, because I’m sober and can escape from awkward situations really quickly!

Alcohol-free time has given me the adventure of life back. Because I have the energy to pursue it and the mental clarity to enjoy it. Going Af has also given me back connection to others. And it has given me back the ability to discover myself !

Because waking up bright and fresh without a hangover is a lot of fun!
For some of us that just never gets old .

Putting down the wine has given me mental clarity and energy, honesty (with myself…not hiding from myself anymore), access to feelings I was trying to drown (which doesn’t always feel good but is really important to my mental health), hangover-free mornings, greater appreciation of the beautiful “little things” in life.

So come check us out!

We are a free and independent community. No one will try to sell you any product or any idea, because most of us, when we put down the drink, discover that the need to drink that we’ve been hard sold all of our lives is just another big ol bag o B.S.
