The 49th Meal

Ever wondered what it’s like to be sober in the restaurant industry? Tune in to hear about one restaurant manager’s experience and how they started a zero-proof cocktail program.

“I think that one of the differences between me getting sober this time and previous times is that I’m telling people this time. I’m really telling people because I want the people in my life to hold me accountable… I want you guys to all know. I want you guys to understand. Because I think it’s little things that people don’t think about. At work, it’s always so awkward because people want to go out for drinks, and I don’t ever go because I don’t want to be in a bar. There’s another part of me that feels like I’m missing out on all these social experiences but I don’t want to drink anymore. I just don’t. I feel like that part of my life is over.”
