Sobriety Superstar! – Jane’s Transformation Story


In this episode, I interview an important member of our Tribe Sober team – Jane Rivera.  She came along to a workshop in 2016, ditched the drink and remains a valued Tribe member, inspiring others to change their relationship with alcohol.

In this Episode

  • Jane tells her how her mindset has gone from “wanting to die” to “can’t get enough out of life”
  • She was introduced to alcohol at an early age as her parents bought a pub in the UK
  • She moved to Joburg as a teenager but struggled to settle and went off the rails
  • A happy marriage and two beautiful children still didn’t stop her from hitting the wine
  • Jane finally realised that she would have to make a change when she felt her husband and kids pulling away from her
  • She heard Janet on the radio and booked a workshop
  • She left the workshop thinking she would stay alcohol-free for a while and then start drinking moderately
  • These workshops are now called Kickstart Masterclass and are available via Zoom – more info here 
  • After a few months of AF living Jane was feeling great and accepted that she would never be able to have “just one glass”
  • She now loves her AF life, is close to her family again – and loves helping people in our community
  • She has recently relocated to Norway – an adventure she could never have coped with back in her drinking days!
