November 26th 2014 is Soberistas’ Second Birthday – We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby By Lucy Rocca

On November 26th 2014 Soberistas will be two years old, although to me it feels as though it has been in existence for much longer than that. Personally, I can barely remember a time when I didn’t log on every day to see the familiar orange and green colours of the site, when I didn’t share my life (albeit within cyber space) with thousands of amazing and inspirational people from around the world who are fighting the same, brave fight.

I’m Never Going Back By Jo De Rosa

I’ve been waiting (all my life) for this date: 14th October 2014. And on its morning the first post in my Facebook timeline was a video of Lynda Bellingham on morning TV talking about cancer. She openly talks about colostomy bags, funeral arrangements and the effect it is all having on her family. Her story is heartbreaking BUT she is helping many others struggling with similar stories, with some saying, “She’s so brave to openly talk about it” This is something I have come across myself over the past two years of sobriety; many people emailing to thank me....Read more.

Look Out London – It’s the Soberistas Christmas Do!

Christmas is fast approaching but thoughts of the festive season can incite a vast array of unwanted emotions in the non-drinker, from mild fear to out-and-out terror, with imaginings of booze being sloshed down people’s throats wherever one turns and the pressure to join in becoming almost unbearable.....

The end of October for me was 6 months AF, an achievement and a celebration for anyone. How did I choose to celebrate? With wine of course. Major mistake, and it has lead me to launch No in November. I want to reach out to anyone struggling with…Continue
