Hola Sober April 2024


Connection As Oprah Winfrey wisely said, “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.” Imagine being in a space where every interaction propels you towards

Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” In the context of behaviour change, this rings especially true. Choosing to surround yourself with like- minded individuals, each on their unique journey, can be the catalyst for profound personal growth. It’s not always recommended to share all of your struggles with your partner or closing family members in the early days of sobriety. They may be supportive, and mean well, but when the rubber hits the road, and the wine witch comes flying in, the supportive partner who says: ‘It’s OK, you’ve been doing great, you can just have one glass…’ won’t be the support you need. Sharing those thoughts and ‘wobbles’ with those who have been through and got the T shirt is what will make the most difference. Our support is totally non-judgemental and knowing that you have a bunch of people who have your back makes all the difference. “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any




transformed.” Carl Jung

Our connections, much like chemical reactions, have the power to catalyse change in both ourselves and others. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression ‘Your vibe attracts your tribe’ It’s the idea that the energy and positivity you radiate will attract like- minded individuals who can become an integral part of your support system on the journey of behaviour change. So connection is the vibrant thread that binds us together. So, whether you’re considering a shift in lifestyle, aiming for sobriety, or pursuing any other transformation, remember: You don’t have to go it alone. Seek out those connections that lift you higher, surround yourself with positive influences, and consider joining a community to embark on your journey of change with a supportive tribe by your side. We’re not just social creatures; we’re social alchemists, turning connection into the gold of personal transformation. The Sober Club

positive change. That’s the magic of a community that values connection, shared goals, and mutual inspiration. Club community, we really do see the transformative power of connection. In The Sober You’re not just a member; you’re part of a tribe with a shared mission. It’s a place where shared experiences dissolve the walls of isolation, leaving room for and genuine connection. We have members who are on Day One…sober curious, a few weeks or months sober, through to those who are rocking it with over ten years of sobriety. We all become cheerleaders for each understanding, encouragement, other, because it’s about SO much more than ‘just’ not drinking, it’s about the holistic picture, what do we want to focus on next towards living our best life?
