High functioning drinker? Sober curious? Sober? This is for you!
How did I miss this one until now? I heard Sarah Benton on The Bubble Hour podcast years ago and recognized myself in her discussion of high functioning drinkers. I was impressed so read her book (recommend) but somehow overlooked this podcast. Warm, wise, witty hosts (aka sober chicks) offer up welcome perspectives on life with and without alcohol. I wish they would come back and do more, but, hey, they’re no doubt off doing other good things in the world, so I’ll savor every episode they’ve given us. Thanks, gals!
Very well done and funny!!
I really enjoyed listening to the Sober Chicks, I thought the content was very informative and brought humor to a subject that isn’t usually humorous! Way to make the subject of addiction more approachable. These types of conversations are ones that we should all be having! Keep ‘em coming!
Awsome Pod Cast
I really enjoy your Pod Cast and the down to earth guilt free approach to Sobriety. Your both very knowledgable on Addiction and mental health. Please keep them coming, Jay
