How hard can it be to not drink for nine months? Would you like to find out?
If you are one of those people who say, "I don't drink... well not very much," or "I only drink on special occasions," or "I just enjoy a glass of wine at dinner or a beer after work," then maybe you would like to make a P.A.S.S., a Pledge of Abstinence to Sobriety in Solidarity.
P.A.S.S. is a pledge to abstain from any and all alcoholic beverages, maintaining sobriety for nine months from now, in solidarity with others who choose not to drink, including women who are pregnant.
Even if you are more than a social drinker, you may decide to make this pledge. And yes, even teetotalers can make the pledge, as an act of support for pregnant women who abstain to protect the health of their unborn children. Here's how it works... Write the following:
I hereby pledge to abstain from any and all alcoholic beverages for nine months, as an act of support for pregnant women who abstain to protect their unborn children. When I am offered a drink, I will say "I pass!"
Put the signed paper in your wallet. Then figure out how much money you will save by not drinking for nine months. Next, divide that amount in half. Then put half aside for something special for yourself or someone you love, and write a check for the remainder to Fasstar Enterprises with a notation that it is for "FAS PASS" and mail it to:
7725 E. 33rd Street
Tucson, AZ 85710
Your contribution will be used to provide educational materials on prevention of FAS in Tucson.
Make your PASS now! But what can I drink instead?
"FAS PASS" is sponsored by the FAS Community Resource Center and Fasstar Enterprises.
