47. Exploring Sobriety Rooms in Clubhouse – with Justin Lamb


Tribe Sober – inspiring an alcohol-free life!

My guest this week is Justin Lamb – podcaster, musician, asset management professional and therapist in training!

In this Episode

  • Justin grew up with an alcoholic father and his brother was also using – like many of us he started using alcohol to socialise
  • A medical diagnosis of an auto-immune disease forced him to quit drinking for five months – he was anxious to restart!
  • He managed to stop drinking by educating himself about the harm it does – he went on a course about substance abuse
  • Justin has experienced many benefits of sobriety.  He feels grateful that he is now able to “feel what I feel” – whether love or pain
  • He is now able to better follow things through and complete his projects – he came up with a nice metaphor involving kayaking..
  • We talked about the normalisation of alcohol and how pharmaceutical drugs on US tv list the side effects – not alcohol
  • His advice about dealing with peer pressure is to take control early on – don’t be shy about your sobriety!
  • These days Justin is happy to hang out with responsible drinkers – but not the heavy drinkers.
  • Although he got sober alone he is now enjoying the community support he is finding in the Clubhouse rooms.
  • We discussed the value of Clubhouse and how people will be able to hear recovery tips and stories without going to meetings
  • Justin has a podcast called Friend Request and you can follow him on Instagram @friendrequestpodcast
  • We also agreed that people are far more likely to identify themselves as “Sober Curious” than “Alcoholics”
  • Joining Tribe Sober is a great way to start your Sober Curious journey
  • We’ll put you on a 30-day alcohol-free challenge so you can test your dependency
  • Membership also allows you to find your people as we welcome you into our supportive community
