7 Top Tips from my 7 Sober Years with Janet Gourand

Tribe Sober – Your Guide to Alcohol-free Living!

Last week I celebrated my 7th Soberversary by having breakfast in a smart hotel. That’s a great tip for sober socialising by the way. No pesky questions about “why aren’t you drinking?” and you can even get a nice buzz going from all the coffee!  You can choose the most upmarket venue in town and it’s still going to  be a lot cheaper than a long boozy lunch in a mediocre restaurant!

I shared my story with you last week and this week I’m talking about 7 things I’ve learned during my 7 years of sobriety. Perspective is everything, so I’ve tried to pick out 7 things I’ve learned over the years – things that may help others who are on this journey.

In this Episode – My Top 7 Tips

  1. Get ready to feel those feelings
  2. Remember that not drinking hurts (at first)
  3. Be ready for the Wine Witch and Moderation Mary
  4. Prepare for the void
  5. You will need to shake things up a bit
  6. Throw the book at it
  7. Keep perspective and remember that the only failure is to stop trying!
