Soberistas Is 7 Years Old On November 26th! By Lucy Rocca


In 1995, I received my first instruction on mindfulness. I was sitting on a chairlift next to my best friend, the two of us chattering away excitedly (twenty years old and on our first parent-free skiing trip) as we dangled our skis a little reckless...

When You Know It’s Time To Say Goodbye For Good By Lucy Rocca


Several years ago, I became involved in a crazy, intense, full-blown love affair that lasted twenty-four, turbulent months. I don’t think I’d ever truly been in love before this relationship; the emotional roller coaster it set me on was unlike anyth...

As I write this, the temperature here in Sheffield is 11 degrees centigrade, the skies are grey, and it’s drizzling in that delightful British style that so many of us love to hate. But a week and a half ago I was taking part in the Palma half-marath...

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!

Reviews

"

"Soberistas has been like a life-line for me. I doubt I would have got sober without it, and I will continue to use it for the foreseeable future."

"

"The site feels like a completely safe place to discuss anything related to my life before and after I stopped drinking almost one year ago."

"

"It's an absolute life saver. I have an enormous debt of gratitude to Lucy, as Soberistas has been the resource which has finally made me stop drinking - completely."

"

"It's a unique resource of help, guidance and encouragement, under the banner of anonymity."

"

"Soberistas has made an incredible difference to my drinking habits - I am currently 3 weeks sober and it is down to Soberistas!"

"

"Soberistas has made the biggest difference to my life. I have had a problematic relationship with alcohol for 20 years and now I feel positively sober.  The support of people with the same stories as me is what's made the difference."

"

"It has been invaluable to me! I regard the women I communicate with as friends now, and we support one another greatly!"

"

"I don't feel like it's me alone with an issue. I realise that it's my problem but that I'm not a freak. The support helps so much. You feel so proud of yourself when you go AF."

"

"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."
