I am Sobriety

With Sobriety, Anything is Possible!

Joined by yet another new voice for series 2, in this episode we ponder the reality that we may all be functioning alcoholics. With some of the usual crowd plus our mate / pub-manager / Connor’s old boss, Elliot, we discuss our relationship with recreational drinking both culturally and personally. Armed with some facts, figures and a few personal anecdotes we explore the role of the good old fashioned pub, from the allure of escapism in drinking and the psychology of abstaining from drink entirely. As you may expect there are some tangents too… including some banter about Ronnie O’Sullivan and a debate about libertarianism and the role of the state. We have a lot more to say on this topic so expect to hear more in the future!
