Sober October is simply making a pledge to yourself and committing to not using alcohol or any other substances. It’s also an opportunity to talk about substance abuse and be a role model for young people in your life. 


If you have loved ones in recovery, you can share your commitment with them and let them know as part of your pledge to participate in Sober October, you’re learning more about their experience and gaining a deeper appreciation for what they’ve gone through. 

Maintaining sobriety can be challenging, and there’s no shame in having a harder time than you expected. If you end the month with some unresolved questions or concerns, talking to a treatment professional or therapist is a good next step.
