Some Like It Sober is a blog for people curious about sobriety, whether or not they’ve stopped or cut back on drinking. I hope to share my experience of living without alcohol and my reflections on sobriety with people considering the same thing.
If you’re trying to cut back or give up alcohol, it can be helpful to talk with other people who have gone through the same thing. But it’s not always easy to find those individuals, or make the time to talk regularly and get the information you need to navigate the sober life. I remember how strange and uncomfortable this felt at first, not knowing who I could go to for encouragement and guidance. I worried deeply about how to survive in our alcohol culture, how to get through social events comfortably and talk about my sobriety with friends and family, how to still feel like myself and find a sense of belonging.
My blog is also intended for people who simply wonder what it’s like to give up alcohol. If you’re “sober curious” but not sure you want to make any changes or commitments, it can feel uncomfortable to reach out and ask questions of someone who has stopped drinking – even if you know that person well. If you’re anything like me, there’s much less pressure in casually reading about a person’s experience and insights on your own time. No commitment, no awkwardness, and you can take it or leave it after the fact.
Whoever you are and whatever your background may be, I hope you enjoy reading and benefit from the information provided on Some Like It Sober!
