Have you ever crossed the thin line between ‘handling’ your booze and becoming a boozy handful?
For generations, alcohol represented a rite of passage, a coming of age. Very few paused to consider the other option of adulthood: the option of not drinking – an outrageous, socially confronting idea, often met with mocking retribution for those brave enough to suggest it. Alcohol meant being grown up, being part of the gang – but what if alcohol were offering you little but awful regret and an emptier wallet? What if drinking was taking more than it was giving?
Messages from the Bottle: Stories of Sobriety – is an entertaining and inspiring showcase of shameless tales and of transformation, of practical tips and life-changing strategies. A night of ordinary humans who’ve walked the wobbly walk, standing before you to declare to you through poetry and performance, story and song, that a life without alcohol, is more than okay.
There is a booze-free way forward! A way that allows you to be healthy in your body, engage fully in your relationships, that comes with no regrets, increases your intelligence and your financial position, gives you back your time, moves you away from suffering instead of hurtling you toward it AND plugs you into an ever-expanding community of other sober party-people who are changing their communities one happy ‘thanks but no thanks’ at a time.
