Your First Sober 4th of July

July 3, 2024

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.

It’s almost here – Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸

If this is your first sober 4th of July, you might be nervous. I get it. Remember to keep coming back to the moment you knew. The moment you decided that you’d had enough. The moment you decided that you were done with alcohol. Keep coming back to that moment.

I’ve rounded up resources to help you get ready to celebrate the 4th in sobriety.

No matter what happens, remind yourself that inviting alcohol in will make it harder.

Also? You don’t have to go to the party. You’re not missing out. You’re not missing anything. Maybe staying home means you’re coming back home to yourself, and that’s the best feeling ever.

Keep going.


I recorded this podcast 2 years ago, and it still holds true. These are tips that can help you through any first (or second!) sober event, holiday or celebration. So pop one AirPod in your ear while you make breakfast or fold laundry or get ready for the big day. You’ve got this.


This is the perfect festive mocktail for the 4th of July! No ethanol needed.

I shared a post, How to Navigate Your First Sober Summer with Ease, at the beginning of the season! Make sure you read it and remind yourself that alcohol isn’t essential for fun in the sun (and actually is VERY good at stealing the fun, along with precious memories.) 🤍
