This week I’m doing a solo episode about our brand new online course called Kickstart Your Sober Life!

In this Episode

  • On August 5th, 2023 we’ll be launching our brand new online course – Kickstart your Sober Life!
  • We’ve been running workshops since 2015 so have plenty of experience – almost 100 workshops on how to quit drinking!
  • With my 25 years of corporate experience in training and development, I’ve designed an online version of our workshop.
  • To ensure that people remain motivated and engaged throughout the workshop, we’ve built in touchpoints.
  • You begin the course with a Zoom call with me so I can explore your relationship with alcohol and guide you through the course – another Zoom call for a mid-course review and then you’ll be booked in for a coaching session at the end.
  • The course content is divided into 7 lessons – each lesson begins with an overview video from me and then we drill down into the topic with relevant podcasts, Facebook Lives, and reading recommendations.
  • At the end of every lesson is a multiple choice test to ensure that you’ve understood the principles of that lesson.
  • Lesson 1 is about mindset – about exploring and overturning the limiting beliefs we hold in our minds about alcohol.
  • Lesson 2 is about alcohol and your health – overview video and podcasts on the immune system and cancer risk plus a BBC doccie called “Is Binge Drinking really that Bad?”
  • Lesson 3 is about how alcohol works – includes podcasts about “hangxiety” from William Porter and “dependence” from Ken Middleton, plus an overview video, FB lives, and reading recommendations.
  • Lesson 4 is about finding your why – this is the key to getting (and staying) motivated – Tribe Sober team member Lucy will take you through an exercise to “Find Your Why” and Lynette does a video on “Loving Your Why”.
  • Lesson 5 is about the toolkit – the heart of our courses – 15 tried and tested tools and strategies to enable you to quit drinking and then to go on and thrive in your alcohol-free life.
  • Lesson 6 is about coaching – our Recovery Coach Lynette will explain what coaching is and how it can help you navigate those early tricky months of recovery – backed up by podcasts and lots of reading about coaching.
  • Lesson 7 is about getting started – an overview video from me with advice on how to take all this theory and apply it to your life – also podcasts on beginning the healing journey with yoga, nutrition, meditation, and various therapies.
  • The course ends with you creating an Action Plan and booking yourself in with Lynette for a coaching session to enable you to start the implementation of everything you’ve learned.
  • If you’re listening to this episode way after the launch date, then just go to and look for the Kickstart Course.
