Happy Friday and Happy 4th day of Hanukkah!
There’s something about a group of people trying to reach the same end goal that inspires me… It pushes us to be greater and bigger and better than ever before. The motivation ends up being for not just one person, but for the entire unity of the group.
I remember a couple of years ago I was rehab for the holidays. I spent Christmas alone. My family or friends didn’t call me or answer my calls because of the havoc I wreaked and the damage I did. I told myself I would never let that happen again. Now, each year I’ve had the chance to reflect. Because of that time in my life, I’ve come to recognize just how lucky I have become.
Fast forward, and today I have the best life. Because of that time, I’ve come to recognize just how lucky I have become mostly because of the people that surround me and fill my life. Being alone sucks. It’s hard enough to do life – let alone sobriety by yourself.
Here at Sober Nation we are doing things bigger and better than ever, but there is just one thing missing. YOU!

Our Favorite T-Shirt To Date
This design took Tim years to make. He described his process, “When I was growing up, my mom had pictures and statues of ballerina’s all over the house. I’ve always had a thing for dancers. One of the first concepts I ever had was to make a beautiful ballerina who was edgy. It was my way of saying that you can be beautiful and elegant and edgy and free all at the same time.” We’ve got T-Shirts for men and crop tops for women!
