Sobered: Reexamining Your Relationship With Alcohol

An illustration of a group of five people gathered outside at dusk socializing with beverages in their hands. In the foreground are two people standing close to a fire: one is holding a red Solo cup, and the other is holding a white cup that appears to be filled with water. In the background is a group of three people: two are holding red Solo cups, and one is holding a water bottle. At the top right of the illustration is the text “Sobered.”
