Alyson Premo is a 37-year-old mother to her 10-year-old son, and she’s currently creeping up on 4.5 years of sobriety. Before becoming a Certified Professional Recovery/Life Coach, aka “The Sober Mom Coach,” she was in the Business Development field as a Senior Sales Specialist for a corporate wellness company called Preventure. Virgin Pulse has since acquired that company. She wanted to pursue her purpose in life which is to help mothers ditch the drink to become a more present parent and get out of the mom guilt cycle. Alyson is also the Founder of Sober Mom Tribe. Through her struggles and lack of connection with other sober moms, she created Sober Mom Tribe in July 2018. It’s one thing to be sober, but it’s a whole other level being a sober mom in a culture where wine and motherhood seem to go hand and hand. When she isn’t helping others or being a taxi driver to her son’s soccer practices and games, she enjoys reading, walks on the beach, and sunsets. You can learn more about her at www.sobermomcoach.com

On this episode Alyson very openly takes us through her journey to sobriety.  Alyson knows firsthand the challenges that can accompany living alcohol free in social settings and created a community and coaching business to help support Moms who want to live a sober life or are even just curious about what it means.  I truly believe this is an important conversation and is in no way meant to come with any judgement or nudging anyone to live a sober lifestyle (please note, I do not live my life alcohol free).  Instead, I hope this episode brings forth topics that are not often discussed and perhaps helps a Mama along the way.

Highlights from the show include:

  • Alyson’s personal story of her journey to becoming now 4 1/2 years sober
  • Breaking free from the “Mommy needs a drink” culture
  • Reducing the stigma and judgement that comes with choosing to be sober in social situations
  • Making changes doesn’t have to be all or nothing - self checking your relationship with alcohol
