Quit Now Challenge
This challenge begins on June 1 and lasts just for a month. Choose an addiction, or more than one, that you'd like to give up. Read yesterday's post for more details on how to choose. It's up to you whether to maintain your life without your chosen addiction after that.
UPDATE: It starts again on July 1 for another month! See this post to sign up.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Jennifer of Veg*n Cooking and Random Musings will be hosting this challenge for the month of August.
Several people commented yesterday that they don't want to give some things up until they absolutely have to. I understand, really I do. I feel that way about coffee and won't be giving it up for this challenge. However, I am also urging you to think about how hard it may be to have to give up multiple things at the same time. It will be tough! Maybe you can ease the transition later by learning to live without some things now. If nothing else, you'll likely save a few bucks, get a little healthier, and learn that you can beat your addictions.
If you want to commit, leave a comment and grab the little doodad for your blog. Note for those of you with blogs on platforms other than Blogspot: when leaving a comment, choose OpenID instead of Google/Blogger. Once you click the OpenID button, it will give you a choice of platforms, such as Typepad, LiveJournal, Wordpress, etc., and a place to type in your blog address. It makes it easier for me, and the other readers, to find your blog!
