Are you wrestling with the sober curious movement? Or maybe you’re just trying to figure out what sober curious means and if it’s something you want to try as you kick off a new year! There is merit in trying a sober lifestyle while still staying cool, having fun and making new memories.
What is sober curiosity and should you try it? It’s a popular question. Unlike sobriety that is typically chosen as a result of alcohol dependence or abuse, the sober curious movement allows you to have the option of questioning and choosing to change your alcoholic drinking habits for your own physical and mental wellbeing. Sober curious is really all about investigating changes you might want to make in your life. You get to decide if abstaining from alcohol is a better choice for you in the long run without being forced to make a definitive change.
The sober curious lessons will be revealed here below so you can make your own choices!
The phrase “sober curious” was actually coined by author Ruby Warrington in her 2018 book titled: “Sober Curious: The Blissful Sleep, Greater Focus, Limitless Presence and Deep Connection Awaiting Us All on the Other Side of Alcohol.” The book has taken on a life of its own and created a movement we will discuss below.
The phrase “sober curious” was coined by the book above. Those inspired by the book have spread the word and those that have never read the book have often heard of the phrase and want to learn more. Many are intrigued with the concept of welcoming anyone to join the conversation of not drinking without being forced to make a change or shamed if they resume drinking.
Being sober curious is really all about providing an inclusive environment for those still drinking, those ready to quit and even those that aren’t ready to give up alcohol just yet. Sober curious means something different for everyone and that’s OK! That’s one of the reasons it’s such an inclusive movement. It’s really about experimenting with your own body and deciding at some point whether alcohol on any level is right for you.

Trying sobriety is more about an evolving process over time with this movement.
