Standing for Sobriety

National Sober Day is a day for reflection and commitment. For many people, it is a day to remember their journey to get sober. For others, it is a day to begin their journey. But, regardless of where someone is on their sobriety journey, Sober Day is a time to come together and celebrate the strength it takes to be sober.

Occuring annually on September 14, it constitutes a portion of National Sober Month. This Day was established in 2019 by ‘Real Aligned Women’ who identify themselves as a ‘sisterhood for sobriety’ and is also endorsed by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. National Sober Day can be about renewing one’s commitment to staying sober or marking the start of a journey to getting sober. Millions of people suffer from substance abuse, and this Day reminds them that they are supported and are not alone in their struggles.

Substance abuse is an epidemic that affects millions of people around the world. Sober Day shines a light on this issue and reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles. It also sends a message of hope, letting those suffering know that support is available to them.
