Living Sober

If you are tired of being locked in a fierce internal battle with yourself about alcohol then this is the website for you.

Here at Living Sober we understand exactly what you’re going through – because we’re all the same. We’ve all struggled with that voice in our brains convincing us to drink. We’ve all experienced the guilt and misery after yet another big night. We understand the confusion, the sickness, and the desperation. We have all felt the loneliness. Some of us here at Living Sober are still locked in a place of boozy misery, some of us are right now battling our way out of it, and some of us have gotten free. We are all here helping each other. Living Sober is a safe, online platform where you can comfortably share about your inner angst regarding booze. It’s free and if you’d like to remain anonymous, you can. Living Sober is a community. It is a place of warmth, wisdom, support, encouragement and understanding. We share ideas, compare notes, boost each other along, sympathise, empathise, commiserate, rejoice. We don’t judge, criticize or condescend. All of our stories regarding alcohol are different, but by sharing our individual truths, we are all immensely strengthened. Welcome to Living Sober. You are not alone.
