Proving to myself that I *can* do this, and raising money for a good cause at the same time! ^_^

My Story

UPDATE!! I DID IT! A full month of no alcohol achieved! It's really encouraged me to look at my alcohol intake for the long term, and I've decided that while I'll still drink on social occasions, I won't drink at home any more. So, this challenge will hopefully have a long-lasting positive effect on my health... AND my wallet! A huge thank you to all those who supported me, resulting in hitting over 50% of my target! The page will still accept donations indefinitely, so if you wish to donate, please do :) ORIGINAL POST: Not gonna lie... I like to drink. I'm the sort of person who cannot stand being the designated driver as the second others have a beer in hand, I need one too. Whether it be at the bar or at home, I'm a drinker. But a lot of stuff has changed in my life lately, and so I figured I'd carry on that trend. This will NOT be an easy challenge for me by a long shot, but it's for a good cause. We've all known people who've had their lives changed by cancer in one way or another, and more funds for cancer research is never a bad thing. I'll be enduring my sister's 25th birthday and at least one LARP event stone-cold sober. So please, show your support for Cancer Research UK and show your belief in my ability to do this... and donate! Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
