(Online) Sober Curious with Ruby Warrington
June 22 @ 19 h 30 min - 20 h 30 min
Join Evenings with an Author (online) to discuss
with author Ruby Warrington
In author and editor Ruby Warrington’s Sober Curious, she dares to ask a question that many adults fear: what would happen if we reconsidered our relationship to alcohol, and gave it up voluntarily? How would our bodies, minds, sleeping habits, and productivity levels change? What could a life without alcohol look like?
In response, she formulates the path of the “sober curious”: not a sober lifestyle following an alcohol use disorder, but a series of steps taken by someone considering cutting alcohol out of their life to explore how their life might change. Leading by example, Warrington describes how her own relationship to alcohol changed as she gained distance from it, and how this distance revealed dependencies and physical reactions to alcohol to which she had previously been blind. She encourages readers to recognize their own blindspots when it comes to drinking, and to begin to reconsider why and how alcohol consumption has become the standard in adult life. The choice to go “sober curious” brings a series of lifestyle changes which readers may find challenging, yet Warrington’s encouraging and nonjudgmental voice offers the perfect blend of practical advice and motivational mantras, making a more empowered, alcohol-conscious life accessible to all.
