Sober Curious: What is it?

Ruby Warrington, author of “Sober Curious: The Blissful Sleep, Greater Focus, Limitless Presence, and Deep Connection Awaiting Us All on the Other Side of Alcohol,” and founder of Club Söda, “[Being sober curious] says that being sober curious, literally means, to choose to question, or get curious about, every impulse, invitation, and expectation to drink, versus mindlessly going along with the dominant drinking culture.”

Have you considered this option for your life? Many times, people mindlessly choose to join events where the main focus of the event is alcohol or substance use. Friends want to get together: “Don’t forget to bring a bottle of wine.” or “Let’s stop at the package store on the way so we don’t come empty handed.”. These are just a few examples of how alcohol can be the glue that holds events together.

If you are interested in changing your relationship with how alcohol shows up in your life, maybe being contemplative about how and why you drink at social gatherings. Our expert counselors are able to help you develop a framework for your life to navigate changing this alcohol relationship.

For Alcoholics?

While Sober Curious options are helpful for those who might consider their relationship with alcohol, for those who have an addiction history or a history of identifying as an alcoholic, the sober curious option is not recommended. Addiction can harm not only the individual’s life but also family, friends, and quality of life for work environments.

What does the research say?

“In a follow-up to our widely covered 2023 analysis of the sober curious movement,  we surveyed over 1,000 Americans 21 or older to get their perspectives on drinking and alcohol trends in 2024. Our latest data shows that even more Americans are drinking less and trying out these nonalcoholic beverage options, with 41% planning to drink less alcohol in 2024.” –sober curious movement

“The drinking culture appears to be changing in America. While 84% still feel drinking is a big part of America’s culture, that’s down 9 percentage points from 2023. Meanwhile, the mindful drinking trend also appears to be growing in popularity. Mindful drinking is when you are more considerate of how often and how long you’re drinking and how many drinks you’re having. More than one in three (34%) identify as mindful drinkers.” –sober curious movement
