Traveling sober can be hard at times but it does get easier as long as you take care of yourself & use the correct tools.

  1. Meditating for 10 min. first thing when you wake up.
  2. Travel with at least one other person who is sober or doesn’t drink a lot & supports your sobriety.
  1. Have a sober friend to call when you’re triggered.
  2. Always have a drink in hand. for some reason this really works. i constantly had at least a water & a energy drink on me. oh & some snackies.
  3. Get enough sleep. at least 6-8 hours.
  4. Have an exit plan. let your friends know when you’re tired you’re going to go back to the hotel/airbnb.
  5. If you’re feeling overstimulated go to the bathroom & focus on breath-work for 5 minutes.
  6. If you’re at a party, my go to was sparkling water with lemon. you tend to get asked less if you’re drinking.
  7. Do your best to have a morning & evening routine. for me, that was always doing my skincare routine, etc.
  8. Go on walks &/or workout for at least 15-30 min every day if you can.
  9. Drink all the mock-tails & eat the damn desert.
  10. be confident in your no i don’t want to drink. most people will respect your decision & if they don’t they aren’t people you want to travel with or be around.
  11. If you feel pressure to drink or that people are judging you remind yourself that it is only a reflection of their toxic relationship with alcohol.
  12. Play the tape forward if you’re feeling triggered & remember your why’s. it helps having your reasons for not drinking on your phone.
These have helped me & i hope they help you too 🦋
