Do you often wonder what your life would be like without alcohol? Do you hate the all-or-nothing mentality surrounding drinking? Being sober curious means literally, choosing to question or get curious about every impulse, expectation, and invitation to drink instead of mindlessly going along with the dominant drinking culture. It’s living in the gray area. Which if you missed our mindfulness episode from last week, that would be a perfect follow up for today’s conversation! So, let’s get into it!
Meg is a certified coach, former teacher, and founder of the Live More, Drink Less Community. She is also the creator of the 30 Day Reset and the Tranquility Talk Podcast. Her goal is to support sensitive, empathetic individuals as they reduce or release alcohol in their lives to start sleeping deeper, feeling lighter, and living better.
To put it simply, sober curious is when you’re curious about what life would look like without alcohol.
Meg breaks down what the difference is with living in the gray area drinking looks like versus alcoholism. Intentional drinking is where you slow down, pause, and think before you drink. She further comments that moderation with alcohol can often lead to abstinence.
When you take some time off from drinking, it is likely that one would experience whiter eyes, loss of weight (or weight gain if drinking causes you to lose weight), great sleep, overall better health. Listeners will be subjected to a wealth of knowledge and tips to exploring sobriety while listening to this episode. Let us know on Apple Reviews what your favorite tip was. We love to hear from you!
