Live Free Weekend
Thursday, Sept. 24 - Monday, Sept. 28, 2015
What is Live Free Weekend?
The Live Free Weekend is a 96-hour sobriety challenge/binge-free agreement that provides a chance to step back and consider your relationship with alcohol and drugs while exploring how use affects our lives. It is also an important opportunity for those living a sober lifestyle to affirm their choice and feel supported by the CU community.
To participate, you accept the challenge of no alcohol, marijuana, or recreational drug use for 96 hours. If abstinence is not your goal, we still hope you participate by signing the binge-free agreement - electing not to binge drink while abstaining from recreational drug use.
Why Take the Challenge?
This challenge to the university community is an invitation to assess lifestyle choices and challenge the notion that you have to alter your mind to have a good time.
Live Free Weekend provides the opportunity to:
- Step back and explore your relationship with alcohol, marijuana and other drugs
- Gain insight into your behaviors and learn about yourself
- Discuss substance use and abuse across the CU community
- Explore alternatives to drinking-centered activities
- Give your body a break
- Be part of a community
- Support others who are taking the pledge and those who've chosen a sober lifestyle
How do I Participate?
Take the Live Free Pledge
For those who elect to take the challenge and live alcohol, marijuana and recreational drug free for 96 straight hours. Or, if you are already living a sober lifestyle, select this option to affirm your choice.
Sign the Binge Free Agreement
Agree to be binge-free while abstaining from recreational drug use. Binge drinking means heavy use of alcohol over a short period of time. Be binge-free by drinking four or fewer drinks a day.
