What Is Sober October?
Sober October first originated in 2014 by a United Kingdom-based charity ‘Macmillan Cancer Support’ with the idea to support people who are living with cancer.
The objective of Sober October is for people to challenge themselves and avoid the consumption of alcohol for the whole month of October - this is to provide participants with an insight into how alcohol may affect their day to day life.
Often adults use Sober October as an opportunity to support a charity and raise some money, donated by those encouraging the person to abstain from alcohol from the whole month of October. A worthy incentive!
