Dry January Survival Guide

Embrace quit-lit

Writer Ruby Warrington is credited with coining the term “sober curious”. Her book of the same name has inspired many to explore sobriety.

Her latest title, The Sober Curious Reset, came out last week and offers a 100-day process of radically rethinking your drinking.

Each day features observations, exercises and insights to help you “unbrainwash” yourself from the societal conditioning around alcohol.

“I have more confidence, regular periods, better relationships, am more productive, and am being more honest with myself, and don’t hate myself, I could go on,” Warrington told the Standard last year.

Annie Grace’s This Naked Mind is another hero to add to your quit-lit shelf. Also, Millie Gooch’s empowering guide, The Sober Girl Society Handbook, is out next week. Just in time to push you past the halfway point.
