Living Sober

The friendliest place to talk honestly with others about your relationship with alcohol.

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 all understand the confusion, sickness, desperation and 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. Wherever we are, we all help each other. Living Sober is a place where you can comfortably share about your inner angst regarding booze. It’s free you can remain anonymous. Living Sober is a place of warmth, wisdom, support, encouragement and understanding. 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.
