Have you decided to embrace sober October this year? Well done if you have, and if you haven’t… GET ON IT! Even if you’re not a massive drinker, giving up alcohol for a month is a fantastic way to detoxify the body and it will also give your liver the chance to re-set, especially before the indulgence of Christmas!

Many people often admit to drinking purely because of peer pressure and the desire to gain social acceptance. This is a totally normal thing to feel but it’s definitely not a reason to down seven shots of tequila of keep accepting rosé top-ups if you don’t really feel like it. Choosing to ditch alcohol for a certain period of time does take strength, but stand your ground and make your intentions clear and people should respect you for it.
