Since 2010 the Hello Sunday Morning team has grown to create the largest online movement for alcohol behaviour change in the world.
Our purpose is to build technology that supports any individual to change their relationship with alcohol. Whether it is taking a break from drinking or simply cutting back – we are here to support you and your choice.
We are defined by the quality of the relationships in our lives. The best relationships can take us to the greatest of heights and the worst relationships can pull us to pieces. Our relationship with alcohol is no different. Navigating the kind of place we want alcohol to have in our lives and being able to adjust it accordingly is one of the greatest challenges.
Four in five Australians believe that, as a nation, we have a relationship with alcohol that needs to improve. Therefore, our aim is to ensure that each one of those people has access to the support they need to improve it.
“I first met Chris when I interviewed him in Brisbane six years ago. He was so passionate about this program, it was infectious. I knew I wanted to try it. I was sick of not remembering nights, hangovers and relying on alcohol to give me confidence. Before I met Chris I was a big drinker. But it took me four years before I was brave enough to attempt life without it. Now I’ve stopped drinking permanently. To say it has changed my life is an understatement. I want to show others how it can change theirs.”
Nick is a Professional Cricketer for the Queensland Bulls and the Brisbane Heat, and is a part-time model. Over his 5-year sporting career he has suffered from a number of injuries requiring major operations. During this recovery time, his relationship with alcohol changed from casual drinker to something more serious. One particular alcohol fuelled night led him to reassess his relationship with alcohol which led him to becoming an Hello Sunday Morning Ambassador. After experiencing firsthand the binge drinking culture amongst Australia’s young professional sportsman, Nick is passionate about raising awareness and sharing his story.
