I set up How To Be a Sober Girl because I wanted to give simple, no bullsh*t advice to any girl who wants to have a fabulous sober life. Because when I was desperately searching for this advice in a bid to stop drinking? I couldn't find it anywhere. and if I had? It would have changed my life massively. I just know it.
Note I say a fabulous sober life. Not an average one. Not a struggle-on-bravely-through one. Not a sit indoors whining online to all our virtual friends out there in the ether existence. A Glamorous, no holds-barred, luxurious stroll through sobriety.
I also strongly suggested that sobriety in and of itself is not the goal. That it isn't the magic pill that makes the world a suddenly perfect place.
But that made a lot of you sad. And you told me so, in no uncertain terms. And I don't like making you sad.
I still stand by what I said. But there has to be a compromise so that you get to be sober and fabulous effortlessly, and I get to make people feel better. Which is the only reason I do any of this stuff in the first place.
Starting after this Bank Holiday weekend. On Tuesday 5th of May, I'm inviting anyone who wants to to join a How To Be A Sober Girl 30 Day Kickstart. It's going to involve as little online support, and as much getting you out of the house, away from bloody internet forums as you can possibly fit in. But yes, alright enough internet handholding to build your sober momentum and get you and your way.
And yes, before you ask, it's free. I get bored by people who charge weird amounts for this sort of thing. that whole "just-enough-so-you-don't-feel-you-are-paying-for-anything. Yet not-enough-so-I-feel-pressured-to-overdeliver. Which they can't of course. Overdeliver. Because their guidance is sh*t. Really awful stuff floating around out there on this internet malarkey, honestly.
Just tweet me @CarrieArmstrng your email address and the words "30 day Kickstart", that's all I want. The rest we can take from there. I'm not going to sign you up to any newsletters, or get you to buy any products, (I'd be hard-pushed to do that, since I have no newsletter...or products...)
I don't care how old you are. I don't care how much you drink. I don't care if you feel like your drinking is an issue or have been fighting in denial for years, or you just fancy a change from your usual routine. None of that is important. I'm not bothered if you've tried to stop a hundred times or never attempted it before. None of it is relevant.
I will ask you to do homework. You will be asked to perform tasks. And there will be a cessation of drinking. The rest you will discover as we go along.
I you can tweet me with the words "30 day kickstart" and your email address before Tuesday? Then we can begin.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.
