The Living Sober ethos is one of sharing, tolerance, connection, understanding and kindness. We encourage warm, friendly and supportive dialogue. We welcome people thinking about stopping drinking or those that just wish to follow conversations (you lovely lurkers). We will not tolerate personal attacks, spamming, posts that break the law or trolling.

This site with all the wonderful brave souls on it, is very dear to my heart and I know that without the support from all the people on here, I would not have been able to leave alcohol addiction behind. Together we are stronger than we know!

This site is important to me. I love its non-hierarchical structure, the support and kindness people consistently show each other, and the comfort people have about sharing a wide range of concerns. I have turned to the site when I've been stressed out by family, work, changing friendships, and everyday life, as well as when I've been exhilarated by sobriety and its possibilities, and have felt understood and supported.

I really want Living Sober to continue as it helps with my recovery. I'm keen to offer encouragement to new people as I've been in that position and I know what it's like .

Three years of not drinking has made me realise I never want to go back to that unhealthy (physical and mental) lifestyle. I would never have done it without the support of Lotta and Living Sober.

I love what has been created in Living Sober and I'd love to be able to help keep it going with the same cultural feel that it has today. I've found that service keeps me out of my own head and it turns out that having responsibilities like this, which I was afraid of for a long time, actually help me.
