struggled with drinking in any capacity, or have attempted to quit, then you understand that sobriety can feel impossible. Anyone who has ever tried to stop drinking - be it for a month or for good - has at some point thought they won't be able to pull it off, that it will be forever struggle; a life of just trying not to drink. 

This workshop is designed to walk you through 10 principles that upend the ridiculous misconceptions that end up preventing us from even trying to quit in the first place, and are foundational to building the life you're supposed to be living - one without hangovers, blackouts, and all the cr*p we've settled for in a world that tells us we need to drink ethanol to be happy. 

In one hour, you'll learn...


10 foundational principles to freedom.

Learn how to build a path away from alcohol that doesn't make you feel like: (1) you are doing it all wrong, (2) it's impossible, (3) it will never stick, (4) it's the worst thing that could happen to you, (5) all the other terrible horrible things we typically associate with sobriety.

How to reframe what is keeping you stuck and use it to your advantage.

Move from paralyzed and stuck to empowered and excited (yes I said excited) by reframing your beliefs around recovery, sobriety, and alcohol addiction. Seriously, rethinking drinking is the best thing that will ever happen to you. 


How to create something that feels like an adventure, not a death sentence.  

Learn how to use recovery as a pathway to getting the life you want. Everything you want starts here - it is just a matter of what you do with it.

Hi you, I'm Holly Whitaker, the little master mind behind this thing called Hip Sobriety. In 2012 I had by all accounts achieved what society had told me I should - I lived in the big city, brunched on Sundays, had a small army of friends and my social calendar was full. I wore the right clothes, had the right apartment, maintained the right waistline, and I was at the height of my career. 

I was also desperately unhappy, lacked meaning in my life, and everything was spinning out of control - including my relationship with alcohol, pot, food, cigarettes, men, and money. 

In October 2012, I hit my bottom. I was putting away either a few bottles of wine or a few pints of Jameson most nights, binging and purging close to $1,000 of take-out food a week, and smoking as much weed and tobacco as I could get into my lungs. It became too much to keep up - I could no longer hold it together - and I decided to get help.

Only, there was no help to be had - not the kind I wanted.

I wanted a modern, affordable, beautiful, accessible, empowering, JOYFUL, self-directed recovery that reflected who I was as an individual - and that didn't exist.

So I created what I wished for - recovery as I would have it. And it worked. 

My individualized path of recovery helped me not only kick my alcohol, cigarette, pot, and food addiction - it has given me a life beyond what I could have dreamed. Since October 2012, I've completed two yoga trainings, seemingly reversed my aging process (at 38 I look better than I did at 28), traveled extensively, left my job and started my own company, started a podcast, overcome severely debilitating anxiety and depression, rehabilitated my relationships, and found meaning and happiness in my life.

Sobriety isn't just about quitting alcohol and drugs. It's about getting after your best life and having everything you ever dreamed of.

It's about living the way other people won't live so you can live the way most people can't live. 

You can live the life you are dreaming about, and it is my mission in life to help you. Hip Sobriety is the company I founded to deliver this mission.
