Sober for October


#1

Have we done this one already?

Guy in the office is gathering sponsorship for Sober for October. Now there are plenty of hot takes to be taken here -

  • Stopping drinking isn’t a thing that should be seen as a tough choice
  • Go on, who cares, it’s for charity
  • There are absolute cunts who grow moustaches in November, this is barely scratching my irk-some itch
  • People = Shit
  • Stop judging
  • Anything anyone has to do to reduce their drinkin intake is a good thing

Me: I’m conflicted.

I don’t drink so might try and get sponsorship to do a reverse version of this


#3

Sloshedtober


#4

a mate is doing it, it’s absolutely fine. i halfway thought about doing it but think i’ve drunk almost every day so far.


#5

Bit late now; to be quite tbqh


#6

As long as the person doing it isn’t an absolute needytwat about it then it’s an entirely positive thing


#7

Decided to do this without realising it was a thing (well I plan on drinking on the 28th). Would be weird to get sponsorship for it though, yeah


#8

Why are you conflicted brah, literally doesn’t effect you


#9

Well, that’s true.

But then again it’s the wearing of a badge of pride that kind of gets me… i get that raising money for charity is obviously a good thing and whatever, but… i guess there are more things lining up with this in day-to-day beyond what i wrote. he keeps talking about how he’s “gasping for a drink” and playing it up all the time like he’s going through a war? that’s maybe why.

it’s not the idea; it’s the way he’s doing it that’s rubbing me wrong. maybe.

I do dry January. My birthday is in October so fuck that, frankly. I wouldn’t dream of asking for sponsorship though - it’s a bit like saying, “my drinking is so problematic that stopping for a single month is equivalent to running a marathon.”


#11

Oh thats fine. I hate it when people do stoptober then dont stop making a drama out of it.


#12

i mean i don’t drink anymore. i miss it on occasion, kinda like missing when i smoked.


#13

Might start no big deal March. A sponsored month of not droning on about your personal challenges


#14

Yeah but you dont make a drama out of it :wink:


#15

I’ll raise money for charity which is very important to me


#16

someone at work is doing it and asked me to sponser them

I did call them out on it and they felt stupid

But i think it made me a MASSIVE BELLEND so who knows.


#17

Think I regularly go about a month without drinking without really meaning to.

Where’s my heaps of adulation?


#18

DiS would be quiet.


#19

Right here.
