In this episode we talk to Ruari Fairbairns, one of the co-founders of One Year No Beer, and hear all about his journey and relationship with alcohol as well as how the One Year Program's and community can help you change your relationship with alcohol.

Ruari's Bio 

Ruari grew up on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, setting up his first business selling and servicing PCs on the island aged just 16. A career in sales followed, and by the age of 25 he’d setup 5 different enterprises and through the TV program “The Apprentice” he found himself in London as a commodities broker.

Ruari quickly established himself as a success and went on to start and grow the European Jet Desk from inception to market leader in under 3 years. In 2015, after a few failed attempts, Ruari decided to take a break from alcohol and it fundamentally changed his life.

Together with co-founder Andy Ramage, Ruari decided to create something to change the peer pressure around giving up drinking. In 2016 they launched the One Year No Beer an online challenge, which has proved more successful than they could have imagined.

Since inception OYNB has helped over 50,000 people in 90 countries transform their relationship with alcohol. With our new headquarters in Edinburgh, as CEO of the business, Ruari is now responsible for a rapidly growing team who are passionate about changing the world, whilst building a business to enable others to help themselves.

“Culture you love, work-life balance whilst changing the world - this is what drives us every day”

Camp Hell: Anneewakee

The Anneewakee Treatment Center for Emotionally Disturbed Youth operated in Douglasville, Georgia for over 25 years. Purportedly, it was a place that parents could send their troubled kids for help. But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
