Ready to make a new start and experience the best version of you possible in 2016? Forget the vague resolutions to eat better, lose weight, or finally get your finances under control. Instead, pick a goal that is doable and that will help you to feel and look better in just a month’s time: Get sober for a single month.
For the 31 days of January – or if you prefer, the 29 days of February – take the sober challenge and cut out all alcohol and drugs from your life. You’ll not only avoid the hangovers that often come with binge drinking, but you will also sleep better and feel better – and you may even shed a few pounds as well.
Also, if you have any concerns that your drinking habits and drug use have risen to unsafe levels, or if you are concerned that you are living with an addiction, you have quite a bit to gain by attempting a month off all substances of abuse – like insight into whether or not you would benefit from seeking treatment in the new year. What do you have to lose?
