Girls Gone Sober: Why Did You Create This?

Rate This

Gail shares why she developed “Girls Gone Sober.”

I was in treatment and the men and the women were separated and us women were sitting in the cafeteria and I think it was lunch.

And we started talking about something about men and women and not being with your significant other or whatever while you are in there and somebody made a joke and we started laughing so hard. It was like a bucket-list laugh.

And I said, just came out of my mouth, I just said, “We are not Girls Gone Wild, we’re Girls Gone Sober.”

And everybody said, “That’s awesome.” And I said, “Well when I get out I am going to make some T-shirts.”

And when I got a year’s sobriety I had a T-shirt made and every time I wear that shirt I have people stop me all the time, oh my God, I love that shirt. Oh my God, that’s great. Where did you get it?

And so that’s why just started making T-shirts and hats and stuff for women to let other people know that we can live life and have fun without alcohol.

I don't get it. I think your message is good, but didn't you really create this to make a buck or two? Not that I am against people making a buck or two. What I am against is people who say they created something, wrote something for one reason when they really did it to make a buck. So, unless you are giving away any profits, you should really be honest and say why you made this.
