Sentence that has impact

When I was some days ago explaining Acitve´s attitude towards alcohol and giving arguments for not drinking, one sentence had especially strong impact (together with a small visual help):

Today´s norm is to drink alcohol. What we are trying to change is to make sobriety a norm.
At the same time I wrote on the board:
NORM TODAY: drinking
OUR NORM: not drinking

Those simple sentences´ve opened a new perspective that many people haven´t so far even consider. So do not think u r boring by telling u r not drinking. And do not forget give ur reasons. Cause as´s norms are not questioned and sometimes to stop for a while and think is enough to change one´s attitude.

I really like a lot the antithetical way you presented this. Like this it is really grapping, really intense a message!
I only regret that I wasn't there, present, during your presentation.
Now I go, trying to change the norm here =))

I think it wouldn't be any damage if all ACTIVE members heard this once in a while!
Sometimes we "know" things without being aware of it. Then it is essential to explain. This would foster a lot of ACTIVE spirit.
