Is Sobriety Really Easier Than Moderation?

July 24, 2023

Meet Suzanne

Suzanne is the host of the popular sobriety podcast, The Sober Mom Life, and is also a sobriety and lifestyle influencer at My Kind of Sweet. Suzanne quit drinking more than 4 years ago and has found freedom from moderation, a message she proudly shares with the world. When she's not glamorizing sobriety, Suzanne enjoys spending her time with her 3 kids, her husband, and her dog, Georgia, all while reheating her coffee, until she eventually forgets it in the microwave.

“99% is a bitch. 100% is a breeze.” 
– Annie Grace

This could not be more true about moderation and sobriety. 

The mental gymnastics of moderation can be exhausting and terribly shame-inducing. It puts all of the pressure on you to control the situation, and it erases the facts about alcohol… such as the fact that alcohol is one of the most addictive drugs in existence. 

Today, I encourage you to consider a path where you truly are in control: sobriety. It might feel like a dramatic change, but just ask yourself what could be waiting for you on the other side. 

For me and so many women, a life of sobriety is one of relief, growth… and freedom.

So, the next time you ask yourself, is sobriety really easier than moderation?, remember to pause, consider to choose on things that help us cope, feel things, heal, connect and have fun without alcohol. You will find yourself not counting down to when you can drink again, instead you’ll be focusing on a full, gratifying and nourished life.
