A bold system (no bs) to get and stay sober; holistically.
The Sober Sessions is a live virtual program for women
February 11th - March 17th
The Sober Sessions will navigate you through the first two years of your sobriety and what to expect to make one of the hardest decisions of your life livable so that you thrive; not just survive.
You are ready to LIVE the hell out of your SOBER life, but…
You don’t know if you can because you’ve drunk to cope with life’s problems and life without alcohol is too terrifying to imagine.
You fear to let go of something that (you thought) gave you courage and made you brave
You are not sure that you need to give up alcohol because you haven’t hit rock bottom and you are not convinced that you need an alcohol-free life
You are too embarrassed to tell anyone, especially friends and family, that you quit drinking because you have a “drinking problem”
You are paralyzed by years of shame and guilt and cannot forgive yourself to move forward
Alcohol is everywhere you go and you are not confident in your self-control not to drink
You are scared that you will lose friends because you are “boring” and a “boring” life seems impossible to live
You are stuck in thinking sobriety will never get better so you fight yourself daily to give in to the drink
You are not alone.
You are in the company of women who drank for a combination of 40 years and have 11 years of sobriety between them. We have done all of the stupid shit during our addiction, made the most difficult choice of our life’s (begrudgingly) to quit drinking, and thought that we would never LOVE sobriety … like, ever!
Spoiler alert: we were completely wrong about loving sobriety.
The foundations we used to build the steps to get to this beautiful clear and present sober side of life, is what we bring to you during the sessions. We BRING IT with love, empathy, honesty, tears, and lots of laughter.
The good news is…
that by joining the sessions you will gain access to a strategic plan that you will use to move forward during the first two years of sobriety to build that beautiful clear and present sober life for yourself and thrive.
The great news is…
that by joining the sessions you will know yourself in a deep and loving way that gives you self-comfort and self-assurance to never doubt your choices or yourself again.

In case no one has told you lately: you are more than enough and deserve a kick-ass fulfilled life that does not include erasing yourself by drinking.
What you will learn during our 6-weeks together:
Week One: Let’s Get Bold
Feel good about your decision to get sober and feel those bold sober feelings right out of the gate! In session one, you will identify your relationship with alcohol and the reasons you drink or drank going all the way back to your childhood. You will begin our systematic approach to remove triggers and end avoidance so that you can work on what matters most; getting and staying sober.
Session One Training:
Create your 24-Hour Bold Plan that includes sleep, anxiety reduction, food, exercise, personal growth, connection and support, and a strategy if relapse occurs
Own your saboteurs and triggers to build a defense strategy to protect yourself daily while exploring your subconscious thinking
The truth about relapse and how to make it part of your plan
Letter writing exercise: Goodbye alcohol, HELLO me ~
Week Two: WE Are In This Together
Work together with your (past) drinking-self so that you give yourself permission to forgive and let go; for good. In session two, you will connect deeply to the emotional side of sobriety to begin loving yourself as you grieve your former drinking-life.
Session Two Training:
Confront your drinking shame and guilt to forgive yourself and move forward courageously even if you are scared AF
The truth of your drinking vs the lies you have lived with for years
Cry, scream, kick your way out of frustration and sadness to unf**k your brain and get on with living
Exercise: I forgive you, I love you, I’ve got your back, let’s GO (aka the most RAD forgiveness exercise ever!)
Week Three: The Line Is Drawn
Practice love and kindness towards yourself while you establish your healthy sober zone. In session three, you will face self-awareness to uncover where (and who) you need to place boundaries with in your daily life.
Session Three Training:
Align your values to your relationships to get clear on what you want
Build your social plan to give you confidence when you say I don’t drink and I need to leave…now!
Learn to calm your social anxiety and have fun without drinking
Exercise: No is a complete sentence
Week Four: I’m Fun; Not Boring
We dare you not to have fun with us this week! In session four, we will explore playtime like when you were a kid (before alcohol took over) to find PLAYFUL activities to make you feel YOUTHFUL and JOYFUL again.
Session Four Training:
Connect yourself to your favorite hobbies of yesteryear to bring creativity and flow back into your life
Explore your neighborhood and get curious to find new classes and opportunities that spark your curiosity
Group Exercise: Date yourself ~ you will participate in one sober solo-activity (don’t worry, we will do it too)
Week Five and Six: Feed Your Mind, Body, and Soul
You will learn and implement in your last two weeks as you dive into a complete wellness plan to move you forward. In session five, you will practice meditation, journal therapy, and daily movement to boost your serotonin levels and feel your best.

A special gift from your new sober squad (us) that will lift you up and get you excited to start (to the first 25 students)
Why is this program based on the first two years?
In our experience of getting and staying sober; the first two years were the hardest. We know what to focus on to you build strength in your mental clarity and physical body that will help you immensely during this challenging time.
My schedule is crazy, how much time do I need to complete the weekly session work?
Please allow a minimum of 1 to 2 hours a week for the session work and discussion to get the most out of the program.
Tip: don’t look at it as another thing you are adding to your plate; look at the sessions as personal growth and an experience that will help you design your new way of living and your future.
Once you enroll, you are a student of sobriety; and that, sister, takes time and grace.
How is the program delivered:
We use Teachable for our school site. Once you enroll, you will set up your Teachable username and password so that you have 24/7 access to the session material. Each Session is released weekly - not all at once - so that you can keep up without getting overwhelmed.
Have no fear; The Sober Sessions is streamlined and effective; not a bunch of fluff!
Do I need to be on Facebook to do this program?
Yes. We know Facebook is not for everyone but it’s only 6-weeks, you can join the group and delete your account when we are done.
Also, as a student, you will be able to stay in the group indefinitely and participate each time we release The Sober Sessions to new students. This means you will get updates and new information added to help you during your two-year plan.
How long do I have access to the program?
Each session is downloadable for you to keep for life.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the digital nature of the course and us being hands-on from the beginning, we will only honor a refund if the program did not work for you after 21-days. You will be required to complete the work (log into the sessions) and show proof of your completed workbooks and weekly exercise and that you have gotten on the Q & A calls. No exceptions.
There will be no refunds given for I changed my mind OR I just wanted to check it out but decided not to join, you must do the work.
Is this a replacement program for my support group or therapy sessions?
No. The Sober Sessions can only be used for educational and motivational support, and as a companion to your treatment of choice.
Also, please understand that we do not prescribe to any one form of sobriety or recovery.
