According to psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Dr. Nahid Dave from Thought Matters, a psychiatrist clinic, the growing interest in the sober curious community is less of a trend and more of an awakening. "It's an awakening to be healthier," she tells us. "It's also an awakening, in the sense that they're realising that you don't have to drink to face life's ups and downs. Sobriety makes you face life's challenges with vulnerability and pain." "A particularly salient motivation behind Gen Z's drinking habits stems from a need to be risk-averse from growing up through economic and political turbulence," explains Dr. Dave.
