Lucy Rocca's Story

Making a difference

After two decades of drinking more than I ever set out to, I kicked the booze once and for all in April 2011. In 2012 I set up soberistas.com and now work full time as editor of the site and am a passionate advocate of alcohol-free living. If you would like to get in touch please email me on lucy@soberistas.com - I’d love to hear from you!

"

"This site gave me the strength and support I needed to quit completely. Understanding that professional women like me shared similar difficulties made all the difference."

"Soberistas is a brilliant website. Being part of the community makes the world seem a less lonely place"

"

"It has been an amazing support for me . It has educated me on all aspects of the effects on me and society at large of this highly addictive drug."

"It is unique in that it's for women, educated women, and accessible at all times to dip in or out of when necessary or convenient."
