Sobriety & Sober Curiosity

By Sarah Yurch | August 4 2022 | Nonfiction

First it was Dry January, which has steadily increased in popularity and adoption over the past five years. Then came Sober October and Dry July. An increasing number of people are reconsidering their relationships to drinking without necessarily giving up alcohol altogether. The notion of “sober curiosity” has been covered everywhere from The New York Times to Goop and continues to gain traction, particularly at the start of each new year. And millions are flocking to TikTok for nonalcoholic drink recipes that still feel like a treat. This big tent notion of sobriety approaches it as a spectrum, rather than as a binary. It doesn’t require anyone to have substance use disorder or hit rock bottom. Getting a better night’s sleep or simply making a lifestyle change are reason enough for many to dip a toe in the sober curiosity pool.

Whether it’s more mindful drinking or a traditional 12 Step approach, these titles can help a growing contingent of readers rethink drinking with clarity and intention.
