"Sober Sidekick gets an A from me. New to sobriety, it feels good to know I’m not alone. Some people have no hope even after a day or hour or minute sober without alcohol. This app makes it easy to seek help from others. As you read their stories, (and share your own) established your own community, and nothing but growth comes out of it!”

"I haven’t been on Sober Sidekick very long and 3 days sober doesn’t seem like a long time but I don’t think I would have made through day 1 without finding this incredible community.”

"Sober Sidekick has provided me hope. Being able to sign in and see hundreds of people within the same amount of sober days as you makes me feel like I’m not ever alone with how I’m feeling. Also being able to see people with the amount of sobriety that you dream of having one day gives me sense of direction and proves that one day I CAN get that happiness and self fulfilling love without the use of substances. This app has been my safe place."

"I have been using Sober Sidekick for a few hours and for the first time in years I actually feel hope. It’s practically a miracle. The amount of sober support is incredible. My higher power sent me here today, when I needed it most. I am so grateful.”

A life saver

I’m 3 days sober now and I remember my first day so clearly, it wasn’t even the withdrawals that were really bad this time. My mental health was taking a huge toll, depression and anxiety to the point it was completely debilitating. I felt scared, alone and I couldn’t tell anyone due to the sheer embarrassment of “here he goes again” the shame hits hard. I’m not even sure how I found the app, but I’m really glad I did. The community is all about self love and supporting each other through the early stages of withdrawal and recovery. Most new users “like myself” started at 24 hrs sober. And I find it amazing that we’ll all get to watch our little timers go up everyday. Everyday gets better, and this app allows you to do it with a loving community. Like others have said this isn’t a full recovery thing or rehab, it wasn’t meant to be. It does exactly what it’s intended to do, make you feel loved in a very dark time.

My Stupid Opinion!

Howdy, I think this is a great app and its intentions are great for someone who is trying to recover, however I think there should be an option for how many notifications we receive (I’ve tried lookin, I can’t seem to find it, maybe it’s there). But I woke up this morning to 5 different notifications asking me to send support to people talking about pretty…hard things to read. As someone who just started this journey, I’m not quite ready to be witness to some of these things, let alone be able to send support to my other recovering homies. I think if you’re in the beginning stages of sobering up there should be a slow push on how much suggested support you send to others. This is obviously my personal opinion, I feel like a selfish a hole saying all this. Does this make any sense¿
