its kind of a thing now.

i am not doing just the sober october. i am going the sober indefinitely.

i dont drink. enjoyed the other thing. daily.

been 21 days clean for me.

not as bad as i thought it would be. only really had a fleeting thought a couple times in the evening when i was watching a certain thing that it would be nice.
but im off it.

thought it would be harder

anyway, anyone going sober for the month?

just to clean out and get some perspective?

there have been changes and i just cant take the risk anymore.

Any idea where this stemmed from?

Hang on isn't sober October about drinking, since when has it included other substances?

Any idea where it stemmed from as in sober October.

Being sober most of the time would indicate that taking a break from sobriety is not needed and was curious to what would bring it about.

One way to quit a bad habit. Is to substitute it with something else. Do you like coffee?

If so when you have the urge to drink try a cup of Joe.

Or one of those foam,milk and coffee things that have coffee in them but you wouldn’t know it .

Opportune time for me... I just had one hell of a bender this last weekend. I still feel like I have damaged things beyond repair, on top of knowing I have to stop with so many things unfixable.

The only way to regain a future, is to start living for one.

Heck no! It’s the time of season for Octoberfest, bourbon barrel stouts, porters and pumpkin beers. In fact, I guarantee I’ll be drinking more.

yes
i already said as much

first time i heard about it was last year when rogan and ari and segura and bert did it

they are doing it again

it kind of caught on but i dont know if they were the originators of it

mine just happens to fall near here but mine is indefinitely

Congrats, keep it up!!

The month of May marked 1 year for me. It was alot easier than I expected also. The worst part was and still is worse sleep quality and the occasional sleepless night. I consider it a small price.

Everyone is different but I suggest all the regular drinkers or smokers try going sober for a few months or so and see how you feel. You might enjoy sobriety more than you would expect.

Sitting at the bar watching football, and that made me literally laugh out loud.

No (on both "things"), I'm not observing sober October, but then I'm an infrequent drinker, so...
