The annual febfast is on again but what exactly is the point of joining thousands of other Aussies in giving up the grog? Febfast attempts to raise awareness of the dangerous effects of alcohol on young Australians. Did you know that 4 Aussies under the age of 24 die and 60 teenagers are hospitalised every week due to alcohol related issues?
Febfast requires abstinance from the stuff for 28 days and encourages you to seek financial sponsorship for your efforts. The money you raise will go toward helping programs that assist youths troubled by alcohol to regain control of their lives.
If that alone isn't reason enough to have you ordering a soft drink or a water consider this: many former febfast participants reported that they saved money, slept better, lost weight, improved the appearance of their skin and had better sex!
