BOOM Community Rethink the Drink
Thoughts from the BOOM Community Members (4/6)
On 1st May 2015, I crawled onto google, severely depressed, anxious and grief stricken (had lost both brothers the previous 5 years), with a big booze problem. I found a community called hellosundaymorning, and then one of its most supportive members founded BOOM.
It’s an amazing, healing place where we are free to ask questions, post about what scares us and delights us in the Alcohol Free life. No paid bloggers, no ads., just authentic and real experience and love. And when we do meet, we’re just as genuine. A remarkable place – I’m proud to be part of the tribe!
I came across BOOM on Facebook and I am so glad I did. Everyone is so friendly, helpful and non judgmental. I also feel like I belong here and have no problem talking about things. I would highly recommend this online community.
I had been Alcohol-Free for some time and attended groups but they are only held every two weeks. Previously I tried AA but it wasn’t for me. To maintain my sobriety I knew I needed to have regular support. I guess I wanted something that was going to be available 24/7 if needed.
During Alcohol Awareness Week in Northern Ireland, we made flyers for BOOM and had them on stalls at our local hospital to give as part of the Public Health Agency promotion. That’s how confident I am in this site and the help and support offered ❤️
