The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober

by Catherine Gray

The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober

Catherine Gray

Overview

There are two definitions of the word 'sober' in the Oxford dictionary. One refers to the state of not being drunk; the other as being serious and solemn. Unfortunately, too many people mix the two definitions and consider sobriety to be boring.

But ditching alcohol can be one of the most freeing choices you make. Rather than needing to get drunk to find pleasure, you can learn to see that life itself is incredibly intoxicating. All you have to do is give it a chance.

These ideas and much more are what Catherine Gray explores in her book, The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober: Discovering a Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Alcohol-Free Life. Gray helps you see why a life without alcohol is far better than you can imagine.

"Crushing hangovers turn even the simplest tasks - taking a cheque to the bank or buying food for dinner - into arduous nightmares."
