Memorial Day unofficially kicks off the summer season with pool parties, barbequed meals, and boozy beverages — that is, unless you’re partaking in one of the many sober movements that have grown in popularity since the start of 2021. First, there was sober curious, the title of author Ruby Warrington’s 2018 novel that poses the question, “Would life be better without alcohol?” with the goal of redefining your relationship with booze. Next, came California sober, a phrase made popular following Demi Lovato’s March 2021 interview on CBS Sunday Morning, where they discussed their decision to forgo alcohol and hard drugs in favor of marijuana.
