    Sober October

    I have a lot of vodka to polish off before the 1st, but I have no worries that I can do it. Gotta clean out the cupboards quick. I swear there was an old thread about this one year, but I can't find it...anyone?

    Probably should have done this in September, but it didn't rhyme so I enabled myself for 30 more days. Anyone else planning on this hashtag friendly challenge?

    I did 6 weeks this spring/summer without drinking booze or coffee. Mostly out of curiosity, it wasn't bad but I'm not sure if do it again for that long. For $1000 I'd do it, even if it's CAD

    This place has really gone down hill.

    Who the fuck is in charge?

    Who comes up with this shit? Youíre not gonna drink at the Halloween party and on Halloween night? I gotta at least be good and stoned to tolerate ToT and itís not like Iím turning down a free drink from the bar wagon.

    Sobruary, people! Itís after the holidays, and itís short.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Ive got a couple friends who love to do a dry January followed by 11 months of partying; never really understood it as I donít think that one month off is doing much healing if you are giving your liver a pounding the other 11 months but who knows, Iím no doctor.

    I'm thinking since I usually drink one or two drinks every couple of months, and I haven't partaken of anything else in years, that maybe I should try Oxycontin October. Oh, and pro-tip, if you think that your drinking is at a level where you should dry out for a month? Then maybe you need to cut down on a more permanent basis.

    IDK what to think about these things. Functionally, a 1/12 reduction of your intake probably doesnt really make a difference in your overall risk reduction, but having an enforced break can expose some inconvenient truths.
