Some people think that being sober is boring, they may even think that if you have to go alcohol free you've somehow drawn the short straw in life.
But what if it isn't anything like that? What if it's the best thing you could ever do to level up your relationships, your mental and physical health or even your life?
In this podcast Louisa talks to her fabulous sober guests about the joys of the sober life, the fun things they’ve noticed and the amazing things they’ve tried or done since ditching the booze that they’d never have done as a drinker.
These aren’t stories about how people got sober… they’re stories about why they enjoy staying sober.

    Ste on Happiness, Feeling Proud and Making New Memories

    From running around a car park to try to clear his head in early recovery outside the treatment facility and in his words 'hating every second of it' to now holding regular runners and fitness meet ups in the local community for anyone to join in... Ste's story really does demonstrate how many unexpected doors open in sobriety.
    Embracing happiness, feeling proud and making so many new memories are Ste's three benefits alongside so many other things that are discussed in this interview.

    Nik on More Time, Feeling Connected and Facing Things

    Nik on More Time, Feeling Connected and Facing Things

    In this conversation with Nik, it's really clear how one path to sobriety is not the same as the next. Nik's route to finding the sober life wasn't a straight forward one, as it often isn't, but he attributes it to changing so many areas of his life and also to how he approaches things.
    From having more time to get things done, feeling more authentic and more connected with his loved ones as well as facing things head on and not avoiding them. He is thoroughly enjoying what being clear headed and present is bringing to his life.

    Justin on Health, Rethinking His Diet and Spirituality

    Justin on Health, Rethinking His Diet and Spirituality

    Justin is simply a ball of positive energy who turned his life completely on its head when he went sober nearly a decade ago. From being an extremely social drinker for most of his younger years to finding himself alcohol dependant over a period of months, his story really shows how quickly things can descend.
    In this episode he covers so many benefits to sobriety that he has noticed in that time but in particular how it's impacted how he interacts with the world from a spiritual perspective, his diet and his health.
    This episode does come with a warning to always seek medical advice if you are at all concerned that you could be alcohol dependant before attempting to stop drinking.

    Emily | Relationships, Health and How She Views Herself

    Listen in as Louisa catches up with Emily who credits her sobriety with changing so many things in her life that it was difficult to pick out just three.
    Emily is such a ball of positive sober energy but by her own admission she wasn't always like that when alcohol was a part of her life. From struggling with Mummy Wine Culture in the past to now embracing sober dating, self development and viewing herself in a totally different light... this is an amazing look at how many different things change when you go sober.

    Carmela | Self Discovery, Being Reliable and Finding Her Voice

    After a lovely Easter Break the podcast is back with some amazing guests lined up for you and lots of sober positivity. Join Louisa as she talks to Carmela about how alcohol impacted her life and what made her say enough was enough.
    Carmela is a real example of what a positive mindset can achieve and she is thriving and in her career in hospitality, not the easiest job to be sober in! She is about to celebrate 4 years of sobriety in July but what scared her the most was how she would black out as a drinker with no warning and still look to the outside world like she was with them.
    Her journey of self discovery is a really interesting and thought provoking one but this episode does come with a trigger warning as eating disorders are discussed alongside the usual topics of sobriety and alcohol.

    Annie | Awakening the Senses, Her Inner Child and Raising Awareness

    Annie | Awakening the Senses, Her Inner Child and Raising Awareness

    In this last episode of the first series, Louisa catches up with Annie who works for the NHS and has found amazing ways to incorporate her sobriety into every aspect of her life including her work.
    Going from being a teenager that didn't really like alcohol but drank to fit in, through to later in life using alcohol to unwind and cope with the stresses of her job during the pandemic, shows how gradually alcohol can take hold. The way that Annie talks about connecting to her senses in sobriety really sells the concept of ensuring you're doing the inner work on yourself and how much you get get out of that process. A captivating and fascinating interview to end series one, thank you Annie.
    The Sober Rebel podcast will be beck next month with amazing guests and more positive chat about sobriety!

Fan flipping tastic

Louisa is just brilliant, she imparts really important information and insights to her sober journey. I listen at every opportunity and, as a result have just completed 4 weeks totally dry. No regrets, no fomo just an overwhelming feeling of calm and positivity. I’ve learned a great deal about alcohol, it’s awful impact on lives and the drink industry. He’s to begin a Sober Rebel! 🙏

Really Informative and Helpful

I listen to a bunch of sobriety podcasts but this is by far the most helpful. The content is well thought out and delivered professionally, making it easy to listen to. Every podcast in the series is intentional and concise, addressing relevant and interesting aspects of sobriety. Well done, Louisa!

This podcast got me through dry jan!

Louisa’s podcasts & dry jan series are fantastic. She’s so relatable and clearly explains different aspects of sobriety. I’ve found them so helpful and particularly like evidence based/science bits about how the nervous system works & different types of therapy. Highly recommend!
