Lucy Spraggan, sober parenting, Nona, journalling, alcohol & menopause – Podcast #11

We start September with hope and optimism. After some uncertain months things are beginning to get back to normal. Here at Club Soda we have a general feeling of renewal and focusing on the type of movement we want to grow to be.

Part of this has come out of the Mindful Drinking Festival we did at the end of July and start of August. Hopes of our three real-world festivals may have disappeared, but creating and hosting a virtual Mindful Drinking Festival created an amazing sense of global community. Bringing together people committed to helping you change your drinking from across the world really makes us happy.

This podcast episode shares some of the highlights from the Festival, as well as a new book, a new drink and some new advice…

Lauren Burnison, founder of We Love Lucid, chats to British singer-songwriter Lucy Spraggan

Love Sober’s new book: Love Yourself Sober

Love Yourself Sober: A Self Care Guide to Alcohol-Free Living for Busy Mothers

For most of us, drinking alcohol is a rite of passage into adulthood. Giving up alcohol completely can seem an extreme last resort, but Love Yourself Sober reminds readers that you don’t have to wait to hit rock bottom to start living a fulfilling, alcohol-free life. ‘Grey area’ drinking makes up everything and anything between the occasional glass every few weeks and alcohol dependence and much of the spectrum is seen as ‘normal’. We chat to Authors Kate and Mandy about the book.
