How to go a month without booze when all you want is a beer

Jan 4 2019, 5:36 am

Dry March is in full swing; how are you holding up?

An annual tradition for some, ditching alcohol in the first few months of the year is the best way to detox after a booze-heavy holiday season. Also, going alcohol-free is a great way to help yourself achieve any health-related resolutions.

Whatever your reasons are for going booze-free this month, we know it can be challenging to stick to your plan; so many situations involve a beer in your hand. Whether it’s a hockey game night, get-togethers with friends, or a Friday night after a long week of work — sometimes you just need a cold one. And that’s where Coors Edge comes in.

Finding new ways to tackle a month without alcohol is always a challenge, so we’ve come up with a few strategies so you can live your best life without missing out on that satisfying feeling of cracking open a beer anytime, anywhere. Coors Edge gives you that refreshing satisfaction you’d expect from a beer (but with less than 0.5% alcohol), so you won’t be missing out on a thing.

So grab a Coors Edge and let us walk you through the best alcohol-free ways to spend your time for this month — and beyond.

There’s no better time to start up a new hobby. Whether it’s a weekly game of shinny, joining an indoor soccer league, hitting the local slopes, or going for a morning hike with a friend — it may be time to develop a new passion and keep yourself socializing and entertained without involving alcohol.

Focus on your fitness goals

If your New Year’s resolution was “I want to get fit this year” — you know what to do. The main thing is, exercise boosts endorphins so you’ll get all the good vibes of a night out with none of the come-down. Your body will thank you once beach season rolls around.

When a standard alcoholic drink contains on average 150 calories, going for a month without alcohol may even help you achieve your fitness goals faster. And a single can of Coors Edge contains 45 calories, so it won’t set you back. Phew!

Explore new spots around town

While you can always hit up your usual house parties with a non-alcoholic drink in hand, why not try a change of scenery? Mix it up and hit some different spots around town. Just because you’re avoiding the alcohol doesn’t mean you need to become a social hermit or forego soaking up the most of the bustling city we live in.

When all else fails, swap out for a non-alcoholic beverage

If none of the above inspires you, the good news is, no matter where you are or what you’re doing, you can count on something that is refreshingly Coors, but surprisingly non-alcoholic.

It’s inevitable, most of us start the New Year with the best intentions and resolutions, but as the months pass — we often slip back into old habits and only a few of us can proudly say we stuck to our promises.

If during the month you find yourself craving a cold beer, pick up a Coors Edge for an alternative that tastes exactly like the real thing. It helps that if you’re deep in that Netflix binge and don’t want to make the trek to the store, you can order it direct to your door from Amazon. What a time to be alive.

So, use that willpower and soldier through this period. Having a booze-free month will make your body (and your mind) thank you!
