The QS Meet-ups aim to give Quantum Sobriety support in local communities. Each month we’ll either go for a mindful walk, have lunch/dinner, or meditate together. The idea is that you forge a new social group in a safe environment, led by someone who is already taking the Quantum Sobriety concept of FREEDOM in sobriety in their own lives.

The QS Guides each have at least nine months of sobriety from the addiction that they joined QS for. Some have done the full five-day residential retreat, and all of them are active members of the online programme. In QS we believe that the opposite of addiction is connection, which is why those of us in the community who have found freedom have the desire to share our experience with others, and connect on different levels; online as well as face-to-face.

Each meeting has a recommended donation amount to cover the cost of group admin, the guides time, expertise, and room rental some months.


About Hazel’s Journey

“Having realised that I didn’t have much of an off button when it came to alcohol, and completely fed up of wasting so much time recovering from the after-effects, I realised that the best option for me was to stop drinking altogether. By the end of January 2016 I had been alcohol-free for 8 months, but at a personal level I certainly didn’t feel free.

I realised that I had been using alcohol as a crutch in many ways and I knew I needed some new tools. Although my life was so much better after ditching alcohol, I still felt like I was missing out, and I knew if this carried on I’d never stick with it.

Just 2 days after QS launched, I happened to come across it via Jo’s webinar on Soberistas and signed up to the online programme. Meditation in general, and the tailored QS meditations have given me invaluable tools to change the way that I feel and think. Alcohol had for so many years been my main tool to change my state, but in meditation I found something far deeper and far more effective.

In the period since I’ve been part of QS I have had my wedding, honeymoon, 25 year college reunion, along with some stressful situations to deal with. QS has been invaluable in maintaining my sobriety throughout all of these potentially challenging situations through the accountability and new mindset that it brings, along with the support from Jo and the amazing wider QS community. I am delighted to be a QS guide and to now be able to start paying it forward.”
