There’s good news for former drug and alcohol abusers who are all sobered up. There’s now a social network specifically consisting of sober people around the world.
Feeling alone is one of the toughest challenges substance abusers face. Drug abuse makes you feel like no one could understand what you’re going through. Of course you know somewhere in your brain that there are many others who are suffering like you are—but it’s hard to believe when you’re in pain.
Introducing Sober Grid
The new network is called Sober Grid, and it works for both iPhone and Android. This app is designed to provide sober people a like-minded, safe community.
The idea for Sober Grid occurred to co-founder Beau Mann when he was at a Sundance Film Festival premier party. Finding it a little tricky to just jump in and meet people at the intimidating event, Mann started using Grindr, a social app for the gay community.
Staying Sober at Big Parties
Mann was sober at the time, and hoped to remains so throughout the Sundance weekend. Though he met a few people successfully with Grindr, most people were still drinking everywhere he went.
“If there is an app like Grindr for gays, why isn’t there an app for sober people to connect with others?” Mann wondered to himself.
No Alcohol, No Problem with New Social Media
With the help of apps like Sober Grid, now is a perfect time to try your hand at sobriety. There’s a strong, growing community of people who want to live life well without depending on alcohol.
