Tackling Today’s Drink Culture with the Help of "LENT"





thirst for life will help you make a difference, whether you join thousands of others who go alcohol-free over the traditional Lent period (starts Feb 25th) or do your own 40 days some other time.

thirst for life will give you the chance to take control – to see if you can do it – and to show others that it is possible.

You’ll find lots of support in this site to help you do something positive about the binge drinking culture which threatens our nation’s health. And it’s not just younger people – every age group has its alcohol problems.

If you are involved with a church or community group, then you could invite a Hope UK Educator to help you. Their awareness sessions are lively and participative and they can also look at tobacco and illegal drugs at the same time. AND if you’re going to thirst for life, why not be sponsored for a good cause.

The situation
Everything we do is now associated with drinking. The big night out, the office party, a trip to the theatre or a night in with a DVD. Government statistics highlight the impact boozing is having on our society.

We all want to live full lives but have we as a society become too dependent on the glass of wine or pint in the local? It’s time for some sober thought on how we use alcohol.

Why not take the thirst for life challenge to go alcohol free for 40 days?

Imagine…
…thousands of people going alcohol free for 40 days.
…spare beds in casualty departments.
…police with time to solve crime.
…city centres that are safe in the evening.

Get on board as we tackle the issue of Booze GHANA!
