Before we take a closer look, if you or a loved one need help with alcohol addiction treatment, Renaissance Recovery is here for you. Call today to learn more about our rehab options.

Are you considering participating in No Alcohol November? Let’s go over some of the benefits

Benefits of Sober November

Infographic regarding sober November

Taking part in a Sober November can be a good idea to people who have recognized a drinking pattern and are using alcohol more than they should. Binge drinking can lead to several health issues. Therefore, eliminating alcohol from your diet for 30 days may just be what you need to put you on the right path.

As a result of limited drinking from No Alcohol November, you will likely reap some substantial health benefits. Mental and physical health benefits from No Alcohol November include:

  • Improved moods
  • Better sleep patterns
  • Potential weight loss
  • Clearer skin

Lastly, participating in No Alcohol November can improve your liver function and even help with saving money as well. Depending on where you live, a cocktail or a glass of wine can cost anywhere from $8 to $20. This can add a substantial amount of money on a dinner or bar tab. When choosing to drink water or soda over an alcoholic beverage, your wallet will thank you.

Why No Alcohol November is a Great Time to Quit Drinking

When you decide it is the right decision to quit drinking, the next choice is when. People who experience alcohol addiction may think, “I need to stop drinking,” but fail to assign a goal date actually to stop. Inevitably, the weekend rolls around, or there is a stressful day at work and temptations to drink set in. Our alcohol addiction treatment center in California believes it is important to act on our goals and not just think about them.

With the holidays approaching, many people choose to wait until after the New Year to make resolutions. Why wait? Realistically, there will never be the perfect time to give up drinking alcohol. There will always be an event such as a friend’s birthday or a family member’s wedding that will cause you to question if it is the right time not to drink.

No Alcohol November can inspire those with alcohol addiction to make positive lifestyle changes sooner rather than later. If you find yourself dependent on alcohol, then the best time to quit drinking is now.

Can No Alcohol November Help with Alcohol Addiction?

While No Alcohol November can shine a light on your dependency on alcohol, it is common to slip back into old ways once December 1st hits. If you are serious about overcoming an alcohol addiction, it will take more than committing to one month of sobriety. Perhaps seeking professional help is the best approach.

For instance, our alcohol addiction treatment center in California provides clients with various programs to encourage a long-lasting recovery. The addiction therapy services and programs available at Renaissance Recovery include:

Our team of certified professionals genuinely cares about your recovery. Not just through the end of November, but for the rest of your life.
