I was introduced to the world of Ruby Warrington through my dear friend Kimber Falkinburg during our Pink Cloud Collective retreat for sober women entrepreneurs and changemakers last year in Austin, TX. For those of you who don’t know Ruby, she is a FORCE. Ruby is the founder of The Numinous, a community where “wanted to create a place where “Céline shoes and the Celestine Prophecy” could exist in perfect harmony.” In other words, where a material girl could live in a mystical world.
For those of you who have been following along with Ruby and her journey, you’d know that she’s a big-time rah-rah-er — and I mean that in the purest, most cheerleader form of the word — of what it means to be “sober curious.”
Read on for 1) Ruby’s definition of sober curiosity and 2) how one person can indeed change the world.
Name: Ruby Warrington
Recovery (or quit drinking) date:
I got Sober Curious some time in the fall of 2010 ...
If applicable to your story, drug of choice: Booze
(Recovery) story in a nutshell: I don't identify as being in recovery.
Rather, the past 8 years I've committed to being Sober Curious - which means choosing to question every impulse, invitation, and expectation, to drink. Answering these questions with total integrity has led to longer and longer periods of abstinence during this time, to the point that now I no longer use booze. Period.
