    Everyone Is Doing Sober October—Here's Why You Should Try It

    Back in August of this year, I noticed I was exhausted all the time, I was feeling really bloated on a regular basis, and my overall mood took a downward shift. After doing a bit of reflection on my diet over the summer, I realized I had been drinking a lot of alcohol. In the summer months, especially in a city like New York where there's always something to do, I tend to socially drink more than usual. But this year it quickly caught up with my body and I decided it may be time to take a break.

    Because of a much-needed refresh, I decided to try going alcohol-free for the entire month of September. But about midway through my month of no drinking, I started hearing a lot of talk about "Sober October." After a bit of research and talking with some friends, I quickly realized that Sober October had become the latest trend in the alcohol-free lifestyle, and arguably the thing giving Dry January a run for its money.

    Interestingly enough, it seems that the culture around drinking is shifting all together, especially among millennials and Gen Z'ers. Alcohol sales skyrocketed at the start of the pandemic, but one recent survey shows that fewer young people above the age of 21 are drinking alcohol daily and even weekly than they were back in 2020 and 2021.

    The concept of taking a break from drinking is not a new one, although it's lately become more popularized after the release of the book Sober Curious by Ruby Warrington came out in 2018. Sober Curious has now evolved into a movement of people who want to see what life is like without drinking alcohol, and one way that people are giving this a try is by attempting Sober October.
