Socialising sober can seem pretty daunting and is one of the big reasons why we stay stuck in our addiction. Alcohol is everywhere. Most social events seem to revolve around it, and even those that didn’t, we probably managed to sneak it in some how! Fully sober events and venues are still few and far between but they are popping up and interest is growing. Find out if there’s something going on near you with these external websites.

Sober Socials is an online resource to help sober and sober-curious people find alcohol-free events and connections.

Founded by Michael Sargood (aka @HappyWithoutTheHooch on Instagram and Facebook) in 2021 after he ditched the booze and struggled to find events that didn’t centre around alcohol.

Originally organising alcohol-free events in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Sober Socials has now evolved to promote alcohol-free events and communities across the UK
