Looking to stop drinking, or simply cut down a bit?

Welcome to the
Alcohol-Free Community


"Whether you're just trying to cut back or whether you're fighting an addiction, talking is vital. I wouldn't have become sober, and stayed sober for over 15 years, without the help of others. Now, in this 'new normal' we're living in, we need each other more than ever. Let's talk. Let's share. Let's help each other."


Most of us enjoy a drink; maybe a bit too much and a bit too often: for some of us, maybe, one is too much and never enough.

When you want to cut down, need to take a break, or quit drinking alcohol, we’ll try to help you find the right balance.

We’re not fashionably following the sober fad and we’re not alcohol-free fanatics!

We've got each other's backs!

Nobody’s perfect in the Alcohol-Free Community and nobody’s expected to be.

We’re all trying, in one way or another, to find our balance in life

As you’re here, you’re probably trying to cut down or quit alcohol, or you might be one of the growing number of sober drinkers looking to link-up with like-minded people.

Maybe your doctor advised it, maybe your dietician or fitness instructor advised it, or maybe you’re worried about your own, or someone elses drinking.

Come in, join in, enjoy!

The Alcohol-Free Community is for people like us.

We aim to share advice, offer friendship and give support

And it’s totally free to join up, and totally free to use.

We’re glad you found us. Let’s connect.

Chat live

Nothing beats face-to-face support but in the 'new normal' we are living in, we'll have to do with video calls! Don't worry, it's easy to do, even if you've never done one before!

Watch videos

We'll be publishing regular videos such as interviews with people who have given up or moderated, you'll be sure to find something to watch while you're wait to be released from lockdown!
