When we think about sobriety, it’s easy to think of it as something for which we strive only after we’ve developed a substance use issue. The reality is, however, there is a global contingent of sober curious people that actively avoids alcohol and other drugs in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This population steers clear of drinking out of valid concern for the impact alcohol can have on their physical and emotional health, relationships and quality of life. The Sober Curious movement has been gaining more and more ground on social media, particularly in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic as people are more concerned than ever about the strength of their immune systems.
