Two years ago, in the middle of being alcohol-free for the whole if 2017, I started a support group on Facebook for people who weren't comfortable with the amount of alcohol they were drinking and either wanted to seriously cut down or even stop!
Even though I'm a great supporter of One Year No Beer, it was getting too big and I wanted to be in a smaller group, better for getting to know everyone. I decided to Captain a Pirate Ship and collect like-minded crew for that epic journey, and for the first year, the numbers went up so slow I doubted we could ever crew a rowing boat, never mind a galleon!
Now, we have nearly 600 pirates in a support group of all ages and backgrounds from around the world. What's more, we've recently found fair breeze and are growing at 40/50 crew a week!
We also recommend Annie Grace's book 'This Naked Mind' as a key support tool which could change the way you see alcohol; the key to letting it go from your life. You're welcome to join us, we don't turn away anyone and we are a fun bunch of swashbuckling Buccaneers who'll always be there for you.
