Hi, I’m Emily. I founded Sober & Social in 2018 after years of being in a negative cycle with my drinking and it starting to affect my mental health, I decided to embark on my hangover-free journey.
I thought there must be other people who still wanted to enjoy nice places, have great conversations, meet new people and enjoy delicious drinks but alcohol free (just like you!).
With a background in events and nightlife, working for the world’s largest concierge company for 10 years, it made sense to combine my love of hospitality and people, my experience of events and building relationships, with my new lifestyle.
Therefore, I put these passions together and created a brand and community that helps others to realise they didn’t have to compromise on their social lives, and at the same time, helping them become the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves.
I am passionate about changing the way society perceives the way we should drink. I think if people were to drink less alcohol we would have better mental health, less crime, more hospital beds, less days off work, feel more motivated, sleep better, make better food choices and overall we would be kinder to each other and love each other more.
