Haven’t thought it through properly yet, but I need a stint off the booze and lose motivation easily. Thinking that the carrot of raising money for a good cause and the support of a group of people with similar goals might help.
28 days off the booze or fags or doobies or junk food, etc.
everyone taking part chucks a small bit of money into the Rainy Day Fund each day (maybe the cost of one beer, cig, spliff, whatever)
those not taking part can promise a small donation for everyone who sees it through
we split the money between a charity and the fund (% for each to be decided)
There’s a few things we’d have to think through. Would be keen for it to be a positive safe space thing open to everyone and would want it done in a no pressure, fun way. Chip in only if you can, etc.
Up for a month off something
Not up for abstaining but could potentially chip in a few quid
Only thing that springs to mind as an issue is that someone might feel worse than they already would for breaking abstinence if they break it while publicly trying for a good cause. Sure no-one on here would judge in the slightest, more about internal feelings of guilt etc.
