/ Hooked! / Addiction / Finding your social identity without alcohol – Faye

 

Russ and David are back in the studio! Faye Lawrence joins them over the phone to talk about the Untoxicated group she founded when she decided she wanted to be able to socialise away from alcohol.

How do you change the social norms about what it means to be sober? Can you enjoy dinner out without drinking? Why is laughter so important? What kinds of activities will Untoxicated be organising when COVID-19 restrictions are eased?

And Big Daddy and Ade dial in to let us know how they have been managing in isolation.
