“Sobriety was the greatest gift I ever gave myself” – Rob Lowe
National Sober Day is Monday, September 14th. This is a holiday that celebrates sobriety and brings awareness about addiction.
Why do we have a National Sober Day?
The idea behind National Sober Day is to raise awareness of the prevalence of drug and alcohol abuse while also celebrating those of us in recovery. Approximately 20 million individuals in the US currently have a substance use disorder. And, 25 million adults in the US are in recovery from addiction.
How to celebrate National Sober Day?
If you currently drink, consider taking a break from alcohol for the day. Do something that doesn’t involve alcohol and try a mocktail instead. Do things you enjoy doing just remove alcohol from the equation.
Call, text, email or send a card to a friend or family member in recovery. Let them know you support their sobriety. (Here are some of our favorite cards if you need some inspiration... and, we offer free shipping on orders over $25)
Use the hashtag #NationalSoberDay to share your experiences on social media.
Cheers to sobriety,
Shannon + Michael
