What is Sober Curious?

Sober Curious - Kava

Sober curious is a term that was created to describe those who are interested in sober living but haven’t made the leap yet. It’s a way to say that you’re interested in exploring sobriety, but that you’re not ready to commit. By the way, there’s nothing wrong with saying that. In fact, you might find that it’s easier to just be honest about what you’re thinking and feeling. Likely a better alternative than trying to keep up appearances and pretend that everything is fine when it really isn’t.

If you’re sober curious, here are some things to keep in mind:

✔️ You might feel alone in your curiosity. Don’t worry! There are tons of people out there who have been through similar experiences. Moreover, they can help guide you along the path toward sobriety.

✔️ It’s okay if sobriety isn’t for you! You don’t have to do anything that makes you uncomfortable or unhappy. Just because something sounds good doesn’t mean that it will work for everyone. So, take your time figuring out if this is right for YOU.

How Kava fits in with a Sober Curious lifestyle

Being sober curious could mean drinking Kava - a non-alcoholic drink

Kava is being used by people who are sober curious because it has a calming effect on the mind. However, it’s also being used by people who are sober curious but still want to get high.

The word “sober” can mean many things. It’s therefore important to understand what the differences are. That is, between someone who uses kava strictly for relaxation and someone who uses kava as an alternative to alcohol or other drugs. If you’re looking for something that will help you relax without getting high or drunk, then kava might be exactly what you’re looking for.

But if you’re looking for something that will get you buzzed, then kava may not be your best option. As with any substance, it’s up to the user to decide whether or not they want to use it recreationally or not. What’s more, if they do choose to use it recreationally, they should be aware of any possible side effects that could arise from doing so.

The Science Behind Kava

Kava Lactones – the feel good

We could write a literal encyclopedia about this. However, let’s keep it simple. The active ingredient in kava is called kavalactones. These act as sedatives by causing an increase in serotonin production in your brain. Serotonin helps regulate your mood and is often associated with feeling calm and relaxed.
