Challenge Yourself – Are You Ready to Be Thirsty #R2BT

Take the challenge snipWe’ve got an interesting exercise for all of you folks out there reading up on Thirst. That’s right – we have a challenge, an undertaking, for you.

This February, 2015, Thirst is hosting an Alcohol-Free Month and we are looking for participants.

That’s right, 28 whole days of, well, not drinking.

An Alcohol Free Month is a period of non-drinking (or reduced drinking, if you must) – an extended dryness, if you will – to allow participants to accomplish some or all of the following:

• Learning about our relationship with alcohol – how and why do we want it?
• Gaining insight into our social networks and activities
• Feeling healthy, being active, losing weight, saving money
• Trying a new activity or interest

This has been tried before in other places around the world, to great success. There as here, this is an interesting and challenging decision, co-made with many others attempting the same.

Perhaps the most important part of the challenge is that other people will need to know you’re taking this journey, should you go for it. You will need to Facebook, Tweet [#R2BT], Blog, Text, or somehow indicate your participation to others. That will actually be the fun part!
