Sober Stories

Sep 16, 2022

Yaz Spark joins Sober Stories host Beth Bowen to discuss the rapidly changing landscape in the non-alcoholic beverage space, diversity within the sober community, and how her own story motivated her to make zero-proof fun. Beth and Yaz talk about the shift in the way people are thinking about alcohol, how ditching booze dramatically impacted her anxiety, and how sometimes we lose friends along the way. Yaz shares what her story would be called: "The Journey to Becoming Myself."


Yaz Spark runs a non-alcoholic cocktail bar service in the UK called Align Events, as seen on BBC and Alcohol Change UK. She got sober 6 years ago and is a huge promoter of sober joy and diverse representation in the sober community.



Key Takeaways:


  • How to find clarity in your sobriety.
  • The process of self-discovery after ditching the booze.
  • Navigating your relationship as a non-drinker when your partner still drinks.
  • What it’s like to be a bi-racial black woman in the sober space.
