I’m just back from an amazing weekend away with strangers. Well, not exactly strangers, but people I met online. Sounds dodgy, doesn’t it?
The website Living Sober isn’t just for “alcoholics”. It’s a place for anyone who is sick of drinking as much as they have been. So whether that’s a daily habit from sun-up to sun-down, or whether it’s the party, binge drinker (like me), it’s a terrific site with a common thread of wanting to live healthier lives.
So we decided to meet offline.

Lotta put it this way: “connecting like minded people around the globe in pursuit of happiness”. Perfect.
I’ve met a lot of new people. I’m socially awkward but didn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable for a second amongst this lot. There’s an instant connection bonding us together. The word “tribe” was used a lot by many different people over the weekend. And finally, at age 40 I feel like I BELONG.
