I wanted to talk to Ruby as I think in the Health & Wellness space, there is an increasing interest in being more mindful about the way we approach our lives, and I wanted to know how that extended to alcohol. You’ll hear in this interview that my best friend stopped drinking in 2018 and that brought the question about my own relationship with alcohol to the forefront too.
Ruby starts with a really simple but HUGELY powerful question – “would my life be better without alcohol?” and discusses how that made her get curious.
Today we’re talking about how you can explore that question for yourself, and what that might mean. Our discussion includes:
-How being sober curious is all about questioning
-How most drinkers are drinking by default or habitual drinking, rather than consciously drinking
-How alcohol contributes to anxiety, exhaustion, disturbed sleep, and more
-That perhaps life isn’t supposed to be comfortable, and what that means
-The 5 different kinds of problem drinkers and how the black/white idea of problem drinking may be outdated
-How you can actually survive parties being sober
-Healthier ways we can escape and revive from the daily grind of life
