Yes, the title is telling the truth!
I have decided to take part of the Dryathlon for Cancer Research. That means for the whole month of September, no alcohol can pass my lips no matter how shitty and stressful my days has been.
I actually took part of the"Go Sober for October" back in 2013 for the Macmillan charity and although I found it extremely difficult at times, I felt so proud of myself when November finally came around. Two years on and I am just as excited to take this challenge again no matter how it nearly killed me the first time! Let's do it!
As well as obviously doing this for a good cause that all the money sponsored goes towards cancer research, but taking the challenge could have lots of potential perks for yourself as well. Just imagine what you could achieve in an iron willed month without hangovers and feeling sorry for yourself! You'll not only be raising lots of money to bring forward the day all cancers are cured but there are all these other potential benefits too:
- Feel more energetic which means you'll be able to get more done
- Sleep better or even snore less. YAY!
- Cut the calories and lose weight
- Healthier bank balance
- Sense of achievement
- Fresh approach to alcohol consumption
- Time to do all those things you keep putting off.
You can check out my profile here for a bit of inspiration if you fancy taking the challenge for yourself. There's no pressure to sponsor me as well!
