What is ‘Sober Oct’?

Nowadays, many people observe the sober month. Two of the most popular alcohol-free lifestyles are “Sober January” and “Dry October”. Every now and then, it’s a good idea to give up alcohol. Alcoholic drinks dehydrate the body, and over time can cause harm to both mind and body.

Many people are interested in sober living as a way to improve their mental and physical health. It’s not necessary to be sober the rest of your lives (although it’s fine if this is your goal), but a short break can help your body reset itself so that you feel better.

Sober October can be a great way to practice sobriety. Below you will find some non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy while taking part in Sober October.
