Basically, it involves me not drinking any alcohol for the entire month of February in order to help raise money for organisations that help with our society's terrible drug and alcohol problem.
I am also participating for my own awareness, as I'm hoping to be more conscious with my drinking. I don't drink much at all, particularly as my husband doesn't drink a drop, but when you are having fun with friends it is easy to finish one glass too many, and this is something with which I'm not comfortable.
It will also be very interesting to attend big social events and be completely sober.
I am not too worried about pressuring people for fundraising, because my entrance fee plus the money donated by a few people I'm close to is an amount I'm comfortable with. I'll drop hints, but if nobody responds, that is perfectly fine by me. :)
