  1. Many of us have white-knuckled our way through Dry January but 30 days is just not long enough to experience the benefits of sobriety. Whereas 66 days of sobriety will boost your health, improve your looks and give you a glimpse of just how awesome alcohol-free living can be!
  2. Alcohol is a drug and we need to take regular breaks to ensure that we are not becoming dependent. 20% of social drinkers will become dependent over the years. Alcohol is insidious and sneaks up on us which is why an annual “dependence-check” makes a lot of sense.
  3. 66 alcohol-free days will certainly have an impact on your waistline. Of course, wine is full of sugar and it also leads to unhealthy snacking. Even more important to know is that because alcohol is a toxin your body will focus on metabolising it first before it even thinks about burning up your food.
  4. A break from booze will have a positive impact on your looks. You will lose that puffiness in your face, your skin will clear and your eyes will sparkle.
  5. “Alcohol is the only drug we have to justify not taking” — harsh but true. If you tell your family and friends that you have given up drinking they may well ask you why on earth would you do such a crazy thing. Whereas, if you tell them you are doing a 66-day alcohol-free challenge as a health kick they could well leave you in peace.
  6. To feel rested we need 7 cycles of REM sleep. Drinkers usually get 2 at the most. The resulting fatigue builds up over the years, especially if you drink a glass (or two) of wine every evening. Ditch the drink for 66 days and you will sleep like a baby and begin to feel fabulous — who knew?
  7. Covid 19 is going to be us for some time so we need to maintain a strong immune system. Alcohol is linked to 7 different types of cancer and more than 60 diseases. Taking a break from booze will reduce your blood pressure, bring down your cholesterol levels and boost your general health.
  8. You will experience the “Domino Effect”. After a significant period of sobriety, your mind will clear and your energy and motivation will come flooding back. You may well start reviewing and changing other parts of your life — your eating plan, your exercise program, your career, and your relationships.
