Event description

Description

If this is your first sober Christmas you may be worrying about how you are going to make it through.

This workshop will take you through the tools and techniques you need to make sure you get this 'sober first' under your belt!

Whether you are looking to do a hard reset in order to moderate your drinking habits, or taking your first steps of going alcohol-free, you will learn the tools and techniques helping to get you started, and to keep going.

This workshop is led by the founders of Club Soda, Laura Willoughby MBE and Dr Jussi Tolvi. Laura stopped drinking five years ago and knows all about the perils and pitfalls of giving up, while Jussi practices mindfulness and successfully moderates his drinking. They know their stuff.

What is this all about?

  • Practical tools to plan the festive period, ride discomfort and avoid pitfalls
  • Our top tips on creating new sober traditions and bringing sober festive joy into your life
  • An opportunity to ask any questions you may have, in a confidential and supportive setting
  • The chance to meet other open-minded people with the same goals
  • Recommendations for something exciting to drink instead - we will also be tasting some our favourite easily available non-alcoholic drinks together
  • A private Facebook community of 3000+ people who will have your back.
  • You can read more about our workshops here.

But is it actually any good?

Yes.

“It was really great, helpful and informative, very prepared and hopeful for the future.” – Emma

“Just wanted to thank everyone concerned for the workshop which I found really helpful - and fun. So often discussions around the subject of alcohol can get mired in gloom and doom and denial, I really liked the fact that what shone through above all - for me - was that this isn't about denying ourselves anything. Quite the opposite. It is about enhancing our lives and adding enjoyment rather than taking it away.” – Claire

Okay, where and when?

Saturday 2nd December, 2pm to 6pm
Ministry of Start-Ups, 14-22 Elder Street, London, E1 6BT
If you have any questions, then email Laura.

What should I expect at the workshop?

This is a small workshop of up to 12 people. During the afternoon you will also do some work in pairs and as a group to explore goal setting, planning, pitfalls, and develop your personal strategies to reach your goals.

What do I need to bring?

We will provide drinks and snacks, but please bring pen and paper and/or other note taking devices.
