July is firing for the token crew north of the Equator, while us southerners live vicariously through your Instagram pages. That’s the beauty of the token crew being global - we get to give it straight back to you in about 3 months time ;)
And while, we do support the efforts of the sobriety programs that raise a lot of important questions and cash for worthy causes. We’ve taken on the 101 tokens lifestyle because we want control over our drinking for the entire year. And also because we’re as cool as 90’s Kevin Costner.

Some full of wisdom, some just need to be said.
Sharing the love
As advocates for a sensible drink, there’s no better occasion to have a beer or cocktail than when you’re supporting your loved ones. Of course we have to be mindful and not get too overexcited, but one of the beauties of booze in moderation is the ability to express feelings for each other, in a way you might usually be more reserved.
None more so important than celebrating and supporting the rights of our LGBT community. Here’s Alice in LondonLand - dancing the afternoon away with a cheeky G&T.
If you’re in Australia, make sure you get involved in sending off your vote for marriage equality very soon and sharing the love.
Taking back your mornings
It’s not like they ever really went anywhere, and you’ve probably heard this mantra a million times via other awesome sobriety communities like Hello Sunday Morning.
But we should give this a special mention because it’s truth for all our crew. It’s a consistent piece of feedback that with clarity of mind comes better performance. Whether it’s making sure you’re switched on when you hit the tools or firing up the laptop. Even just making sure you’re fully present in the room when catching your friends and family on the weekends. It really is a fantastic thing to snatch back the early mornings.
Or like Loz, who gets up pretty much every morning to enjoy the sights of Sydney’s east coast. If only we all had that willpower we could all enjoy the sights our local living has to offer.
Potentially this could be a monthly challenge if anyone wants to fire up a support group?
What we use our tokens for:
TOKEN DAYS OFF
The things we do instead of drinking are ALMOST the most important things we do
TOKEN WRITE UP OF THE MONTH
Step into the life of an Ex-pat working in Singapore and trying to avoid the temptations of living the postcard life. Inevitably leading to winding down after a long day of exploring and exercising the willpower to avoid those cheeky wines.
