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.

Most of all, I can hardly recall a life which involved....Read more. Posted 9th November.

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
