The Podcast for the Sober & Sober Curious
We set up the Love Sober podcast, for the sober & sober curious in May 2018 to reach out to people like us. We felt the need for a new conversation – not one of ‘addiction’, ‘relapse’ and ‘recovery’, which has previously been the standard text on the subject of booze, but one about the huge grey area of problematic drinking instead. Whether binge drinking or drinking to self-medicate stress, depression or anxiety, we talk about it all with the vibe of a comfy chat over a cuppa.
Our dialogue is primarily an honest parenting discussion through a sober lens. We both saw how we had bought into the ‘wine o’clock’ advertising-speak, and how detrimental that had been to us both as women and parents, and we seek to help others who are feeling the same. Our wellness and self-care journeys had made us realize that we can feel so much better when we ‘put down the Pinot’ and start asking better questions about how we really feel and what we really need.
The podcast is a mixture of handy tips, personal experience and interviews with special guests.
