Do it for a day, or a week, or through the New Year.
Announce it any way you want.
We only ask three things:
Announce to the world (using #sobercookie) that you’re in. Post a video or photo. Tell your neighbors. Challenge your friends.
Use the hashtag #sobercookie whenever you post.
Most important: Remember it’s about raising awareness, developing empathy, and showing support for people in addiction and recovery. Tune in to the cravings, temptations, and feelings – and keep sharing your experiences all throughout your challenge.
Not sure how to declare your Sober Cookie™ Challenge commitment?
