If you’re “sober curious, if you are drinking too much too often and want to stop or take a break, or if you have stopped drinking and are trying to stick to sober! Talk to Us. 

Are you wondering ?

Are you thinking about your drinking?

Does it make you happy?
Does it help at all?
Or does it just sit back
And watch you fall?

Does it make you strong?
Does it make you weak?
Does it really provide
The happiness you seek?

Does it serve you well
To enjoy the life you live?
Or do you feel like it’s pushing
You to the edge of a cliff?

Do you control it?
Does it control you?
Do you really know the answer
To either of those two?

Does it scare you to be sober?
Does it scare you to drink?
Which one scares you the most
Do you think?

Do you want to be healthy?
Do you want to have fun?
Do you know in being sober
Both can be done?

Do you want to embrace sobriety?
Are you willing to try?
Do you want to let go of the alcohol lies?

“What if I fail?”…. you might say
“Oh but what if you fly?” 

Rethink the Drink – BOOM

Sober curious? When I decided that I had to stop drinking at 50, the idea of sobriety left me cold. I was used to seeing wine as my rocket fuel. The carrot at the end of the stick that I chased throughout my day. How would I shut down? What would my friends and family think if I told them I COULDN’T drink? How would I juggle job and parenting and household responsibilities without my nightly wine? How would I live the active, colorful life I knew……….. sober ?

I did not WANT to stop drinking. I loved to drink . I loved the taste of wine and the shape of the glass and the beautiful labels on the bottles. I loved the sensuality of wine. At the end of a long day, I loved the soft warm buzz that I got from that first glass. I loved letting my body and brain go numb as I finished off the first bottle. On the nights that I kept going and drank to oblivion, I loved escaping to the dark, velvety nothing shortly before my brain shut down in a waking blackout.

On March 6, 2015, however, I decided that I no longer had a choice. I didn’t hit a dramatic, public rock bottom. It was still MY choice but I was getting to the point where I was drinking to dangerous levels almost every time I poured a glass. 

If you are simply curious, or even starting to feel a bit desperate and don’t know where to turn for help, I hope that the following articles from our BOOM Community will inspire you to give sober a try.
