Tribe Sober – Inspiring an Alcohol-free Life!
After running Tribe Sober for 5 years and helping hundreds of people to ditch the drink and embrace alcohol-free living, I’ve learned a thing or two. My biggest insight has been that sharing our stories around alcohol is the most powerful way we can help others – that’s why the heart of this podcast is recovery stories.
In this episode I interview Lucy who I met at our first London workshop back in 2018. Since then, not only has she ditched the drink and transformed her own health, but so too has she helped many other people in our community. Lucy just hit her second Soberversary and is loving her alcohol-free life!
In this Episode
- Lucy was a social drinker until her 40’s but then started using it to self-medicate her work-related stress
- She tried to moderate as she was determined to be “normal” but it never really stuck – in spite of her many “rules”
- She had managed to give up for short periods – Dry January, etc
- Lucy came to the workshop with 1 month of sobriety – she wanted a boost to make sure she stayed on track
- She had also read Clare Pooley’s book, The Sober Diaries, which inspired her
- She loved the workshop because she got a lot of info and connected with others on the same path
- Lucy stayed connected with these people via the chat group
- She also became a member and got her subscription fee back in one week of not drinking!
- One of the things she loves about the Members’ chat group is all the information that is circulated
- She loves the support and friendship in the Membership – we all understand each other
- The weekly Zoom cafe has added another layer of connection for the community
- We talked about the value of the annual and 66-day trackers which Lucy designed
- Lucy listed the many benefits of sobriety – she particularly loves not having her life revolve around alcohol!
- She is a cheerleader for the Sober Springers and finds the mutual support heartwarming
