Save the money (and calories!) you would have spent on alcohol, and donate it. 100% of proceeds will go to a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness around recovery.
HOW IT WORKS:
1. Choose one of the following options:
A. Proceed as usual.
B. Challenge yourself. Go sober through October.
2. Tally the amount you spent on alcohol or saved from not drinking, and DONATE. 100% of proceeds will go to Faces & Voices of Recovery, a a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation that joins together individuals and organizatoins with a united voice to advocate for public action to deliver the power, possibility and proof of recovery.
3. Check yourself (before you wreck yo-self!). Do you drink to party, or party to drink?
KNOW YOUR RISK LEVEL.
Alcoholism is a disease and it's often progressive. It causes a ripple effect in its surrounding community. The Mayo Clinic and the NIAAA suggest several guidelines for evaluating your level of risk. Here's an easy code to remember them:
4 or more drinks in one night (3 for women!)
14 or more drinks in one week (7 for women!)
Trauma or abuse during childood
Increased or steady drinking over time
Parent(s) or other close relatives who have problems with alcohol
Psychological disorder, such as anxiety, depression or PTSD
Social or cultural factors (i.e. friends who love to party)
Youth drinking; the earlier you start, the higher your risk
1 in 6 people in the US have a drinking problem
Alcohol is the number 1 drug problem in America
An average American may consume over 25 gallons of beer, 2 gallons of wine, and 1.5 gallons of distilled spirits each year
Alcohol and alcohol related problems cost the American economy at least $100 million in health care and loss of productivity every year.
90% of people with addiction receive no form of treatment whatsoever
