Long-term sobriety recovery is worth every challenging step along the way. The battles you face, the scars you wear, and the victories you win celebrate your achievement. But the road doesn’t have to feel so lonely.

Building a strong community that shares their stories and motivates you to keep going is essential to achieving long-term success. Listening to sobriety podcasts is one effective way to create that community. It’s an intimate conversation with someone who has been there before and offers advice, encouragement, and maybe even a few laughs along the way.

So, find a host you connect with, then you can enjoy the many benefits of sobriety podcasts.

To get you started, here’s a list of the five best sobriety podcasts still airing in 2023.

The Sobriety Diaries brings stories of recovery and life after addiction. Nate Kelly began his podcast in 2021, so others like himself feel less alone. He posts new episodes every Wednesday, often highlighting a guest who tells their story of addiction and sobriety to build a community.

Nate Kelly took his last drink in 2015. His journey was a constant struggle beforehand, including a heart attack at 32. However, he has come a long way since then and is encouraging others through his podcast to choose a life free of addiction. 

2. That Sober Guy

That Sober Guy has been around since 2014 and remains at the top of the charts for sobriety podcasts, with over 2 million listeners. Shane Ramer gave up drinking in 2013 after 17 years. Now he wants to encourage other men to achieve the same victory.
