Hi I’m Teri.  I decided to quit drinking on 29th April 2019, after too many years of drinking more than I wanted to. At first, drinking was fun and relaxing and a way to connect with friends and peers, but it progressed into drinking alone and often without an ‘off switch’, and that began to really bother me. 

I had tried two bouts of sobriety before eventually quitting for good. I knew giving up was a desire buried deep within me but I got really good at ignoring it, and continued drinking and feeling horribly hungover for years. 

When I got into my 40’s, I just decided enough was enough. Alcohol wasn’t serving me and I was desperate to learn another way of living. I took the very brave decision to stop drinking after another very messy night out with the girls and so here I am.

 Teri, aka Sassy Sober Mum, is the host of her own successful sobriety podcast show (Sober Stories from Everyday People) and the founder of the THRIVE Sober Community. Teri is passionate about sharing stories on instagram (@sassysobermum) around her relationship with alcohol and how she chose and found success living an alcohol free life, just over 4 years ago. 

Teri will be sharing her story on Saturday 16th September at VERVE.
