and have 11 years of sobriety between them. We have done all of the stupid shit during our addiction, made the most difficult choice of our life’s (begrudgingly) to quit drinking, and thought that we would never LOVE sobriety … like, ever!
Spoiler alert: we were completely wrong about loving sobriety.

Courtney and Lori are with you every step of the way. You have one-year of continuous access to two sober coaches who have gone through the first year of sobriety the hard way. The Sober Sessions is designed to help you NOT do the same.
Why is this program based on the first year?
In our experience of getting and staying sober the first year was the hardest. We know what to focus on to you build strength in your mental clarity and physical body that will help you immensely during this challenging time.
My schedule is crazy, how much time do I need to complete the weekly session work?
Please allow a minimum of 1 to 2 hours a week for the session work and discussion to get the most out of the program. All LIVE coaching sessions are recorded so you can view at anytime. Go at your own pace.
Tip: don’t look at it as another thing you are adding to your plate, embrace the sessions as personal growth and an experience that will help you design your new way of living and your future.
Once you enroll, you are a student of sobriety; and that, sister, takes time and grace.
How is the program delivered:
We use Kajabi for our school site. Once you enroll, you will set up your school username and password so that you have 24/7 access to the session material. Each Session is released weekly - not all at once - so that you can keep up without getting overwhelmed.
Have no fear; The Sober Sessions is streamlined and effective; not a bunch of fluff!
Do I need to be on Facebook to do this program?
Yes. We know Facebook is not for everyone but it’s only 6-weeks, you can join the group and delete your account when we are done.
Also, as a student, you will be able to stay in the group indefinitely and participate each time we release The Sober Sessions to new students. This means you will get updates and new information added to help you during your two-year plan.
How long do I have access to the program?
Each session is downloadable for you to keep for life.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the digital nature of the course and us being hands-on from the beginning, we will only honor a refund if the program did not work for you after 21-days. You will be required to complete the work (log into the sessions) and show proof of your completed workbooks and weekly exercise and that you have gotten on the Q & A calls. No exceptions.
There will be no refunds given for I changed my mind OR I just wanted to check it out but decided not to join, you must do the work.
Is this a replacement program for my support group or therapy sessions?
No. The Sober Sessions can only be used for educational and motivational support, and as a companion to your treatment of choice.
Also, please understand that we do not prescribe to any one form of sobriety or recovery.
What if I continue to drink, can I stay in the program?
Come on, sister, no one is perfect. The beauty of the Sessions is that it will help you create a plan in the event relapse happens. The sessions will also open your heart to the new possibilities of living a sober life to make it a little bit easier to quit drinking.
We keep it anonymous. Our students are are our sisters in sobriety.

"The Sober Sessions was a good course to add to my sober toolkit. Going through this course gave me some good insights to myself and what I want for myself in the future. Courtney and Lori were so nice, and I felt like I was with good friends, not just a teacher lecturing me. I am happy with what I learned about myself in The Sober Sessions, and am pleased to have it as a resource to go back to any time I need it."
