I was mildly thinking about it as I probably should since Covid lockdown has me drinking more than usual. By the way you missed a golden opportunity for "OcSober". I'll now use that as an excuse to have a drink or two tonight, hey it's past 5PM here.
I think I'll just do next week Monday to Monday sober rather than a whole month, that's enough for me as I usually don't have more than 1-3 drinks in a session anyhow.
Best of luck to you for your run though, good onya.
I did a mostly sober september! Had a drink maybe once or twice. From drinking heavily at least once a week throughout my adult life, this year im trying to rdduce to max 1 drinking season a month and i am feeling so much better! Corona definitely helped with that.
I am. I drink frequently, I feel that I need to give it up every once in awhile to stay healthy. There is also the benefit of it lowering your tolerance so that when you resume drinking you aren't drinking as much, so you are probably not doing as much damage to your body. I wish I could get other people I know to do this. I have a few family members who drink a lot more than me, but are not willing to consider the idea that they would quit for a whole month.
Edit: Everyone I know either doesn't drink enough to do sober October, or they drink a lot more than me and won't even consider it.
I've been doing sober Life and I highly recommend it. You sleep better, you work better, you have more fun, you spend less money, your health improves and so on. Also, drinking won't solve anybody's problems.
