After New Hampshire, DC has the highest alcohol consumption per capita in the country. This isn’t surprising given how normalized alcohol has become--we drink while getting a manicure, grocery shopping, and happy hours are the way we network par excellence.

We answer these questions with today’s guest, Laura Silverman, the founder of The Sobriety Collective, a blog and resource hub dedicated to the sober lifestyle, and the creator of Booze Free in DC, a website to showcase the sober-friendly scene in the DMV.
