“We get drunk together, so why do we have to be sober alone?
Club Soda launches in Brighton
Saturday 18th April – 2.30 – 5.30pm
The Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1
Club Soda was created by Laura Willoughby who was spurred into action when she quit drinking three years ago. Feeling the support for individuals to change their drinking needed to be a bit more empowering and a lot more social, Club Soda challenges people to set their own goals and organises fun and inspiring events – members can track their progress and continue the mutual support in the online Club House – joinclubsoda.co.uk.
“We get drunk together, so why do we have to be sober alone? We want to help people kick-start a new healthier lifestyle. Changing your drinking with others is important to our philosophy and the key to success” said Laura.
Club Soda is creating a movement of people who want to change their drinking, whether you want to cut down, stop for a bit or quit altogether.
In a 2012 poll 33% of people in Brighton said that they would like more to do in the City that didn’t involve alcohol.
61% said that alcohol was part of their social lives and one in five people want to quit drinking.
Changing your drinking can come with a lot of concerns. The big worry is that life will be less. Less fun, less easy, less relaxed, less, well, less everything.
But it is possible to be even happier when you’re sober than when drinking is a regular feature of life.
Club Soda invites you to a workshop led by one of Club Soda’s founder members, Harriet Waley-Cohen. The workshop will bring you together with like-minded people who are thinking about life without drinking. During the afternoon we’ll explore issues such as how to handle various situations sober that alcohol used to make possible before.
In a very practical way, we’ll look at the big picture and identify what you can add into your life to make you happy.
With Club Soda you will find an ongoing network of support, we have a team of great local volunteers and this will be the first of a number of social and supportive events.
