Why Go Sober ?

As well as raising money to help others there are many great benefits to going alcohol free for a month.

  • Reclaim your weekends – no hangover means more time to really enjoy your time off.
  • Enjoy a better quality of sleep
  • You’ll feel and look healthier and happier.
  • Healthier Bank Balance

You’ll also look your best with clearer skin, have a clearer head (and maybe have time to consider how and why you consume alcohol) and feel proud for having completed the challenge while helping to support others struggling with alcohol and drug dependency.

So there you have it: having 31 gloriously hangover-free days will not only see you raise lots of money for Addiction NI, you’ll also be doing good for your own physical and mental health.


Go Sober for October is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year.

For those struggling with alcohol dependency please call our office 20 028 9066 4434 for further information, advice and support.
