Ruby Warrington is creator of the term Sober Curious. Author of the 2018 book of the same title, her work has spearheaded a global movement to reevaluate our relationship to alcohol.

Her new book, Women Without Kids, will be published with Sounds True in early 2023.



The Sober Curious Reset

“There’s so much power for change packed into this guide. Ruby brilliantly leads the reader through the big psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual stumbling blocks to dropping booze. I wish I had this in my hands twenty years ago; it would’ve have been a game changer. If curiosity is the key to transformation, then this is the roadmap for transforming your relationship to alcohol.” – Laura McKowan, author, We Are The Luckiest

Sober Curious

“Ruby Warrington leads us into a new vision of what our lives can be like without alcohol—one where we can deepen our health, reclaim our power, and enjoy a greater sense of fulfillment in all areas of modern life.” – Diego Perez (@yung_pueblo)

Material Girl, Mystical World

“Makes the mystical accessible and cool, and reminds us that to truly thrive we must learn to embrace our capacity for wonder and spirituality, and engage with something larger than ourselves.” – Arianna Huffington

The Numinous Astro Deck

Comprised of 45 cards (12 signs, 12 houses, 14 planets and points, 7 aspects), each provides an overview of the traits associated with its sign, house, planet, and more, along with a custom illustration that brings the teachings to life. A companion book co-authored by astrologer Bess Matassa, explains how to use the cards to interpret birth charts as well as an oracle deck for divination.


“Obsessed. Listening to these interviews makes me realize I am not the odd-girl-out. Seriously cool, inspiring, chic, international, and authentic people share the same struggles as me. We are all in this together!” – iTunes user.

With my Sober Curious podcast, I speak to all kinds of folks about their relationships to booze, as well as how to navigate life as a non-drinker in a world that loves to get wasted.

My work comes to life offline, and connecting with people in talks, panel events, workshops, and on retreats, is when everything clicks into place. 2021 Sober Curious retreat suspended due to COVID. 


Work with me

“Ruby helped me wade through a sea of ideas, selecting the most potent portals of insight. She then helped me organize and craft my completed manuscript in a way that could reach the masses.” – Alexandra Roxo, author, F*ck Like A Goddess

In my capacity as a “book doula,” I assist individuals in every step of the publishing process—from writing their book proposal, to helping concept and structure their ideas, to editing their complete manuscript. I also work with emerging authors in the Now Age space to self-publish with Numinous Books.
