Why did I want to talk with Kim Bellas of Sober Is The Cool? In 2013, her 15 -year-old started having seizures. Like most teenagers, he enjoyed going to parties and socializing. A significant aspect of these parties was the consumption of alcohol, and her son was unable to drink due to his seizures. As a mother, it was instinctive for her to make him happy by assuring him that alcohol wasn't necessary for him to enjoy himself. It IMMEDIATELY dawned on Kim how hypocritical she was being as she found herself frequently drinking wine. To prove a point to her son, she stopped drinking for 3 months. The time went by quicker than she anticipated and she decided to remain sober for another 3 months. Following 6 months of sobriety, Kim found herself happier than she had been in a while. What started as an example for her son became something Kim decided to commit to for her son and herself. It's now 2023, and Kim is proudly sober for 10 years. Sobriety has changed Kim's outlook on life for the better and has improved both her physical and mental well-being. Her goal is to demonstrate that a SOBER LIFE is an exhilarating one, and anyone can reap the benefits. This is Kim Bellas Knockin' Doorz Down.
