A Beginner’s Guide to the ‘Sober Curious’ Movement


Had a few too many hangovers lately? Fed up with the morning fuzziness and vague headache that follow your nightly glass or two of wine? Beginning to question the way alcohol affects your mood?

If you’re starting to wonder whether giving up drinking might have a positive impact on your life, know that you’re not alone with these thoughts. A growing number of “sober curious” people are starting to take a closer look at the role alcohol plays in their life.

Sober curious simply means that you’ve chosen to avoid alcohol for personal or wellness reasons. It involves curiosity about the reasons fueling your desire to drink and the way alcohol affects your life.

Jax pet of the week

This rambunctious cat, Jax, is full of energy and has an affinity for hair ties and cable wires.

He was adopted at 9 months old back in December 2021 with the intentions of giving his grumpy brother cat, Charlie, some company. Well, that didn’t pan out and drives him crazy at times.

Jax acts like a dog. He fetches and sleeps in all funny positions. He’s a total lovable goofball and his owners love him so much!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
