TV host Mrten Andersson, 40, is launching the club night in Stockholm this September called sober. It's the same story every Saturday and Sunday morning as millions of Brits wake up nursing stupendous hangovers.
12 hours earlier as punters in bars, nightclubs and restaurants they will have been queuing up to hand over their hard-earned cash in return for enough booze to get drunk out of their minds. Now one man is hoping to change this centuries-old tradition with the invention of a new type watering hole: an alcohol-free nightclub. Mrten Andersson, 40, is launching a club night in Stockholm this September called sober, that will only stock soft drinks and promises to bar entry to drunk guests.
The Swedish TV host and comedian decided to launch the evening to help people change their relationship with alcohol. He came up with the idea after quitting alcohol himself seven months ago.
He told the MailOnline: 'I love what happened to me when I stopped drinking - jennifer I had been talking about doing it for some time, because I had started to feel anxiety when I drank. 'Then I was out partying one weekend, got too drunk and just decided to take a break. 'It was only supposed to be for a month, but then I realised that on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I was usually still feeling the effects of a hangover, so I was basically wasting half of my week.
'I'm not an alcoholic, so I will probably drink again at some point because I really enjoy the taste of wine, but my attitude to drinking has now changed.'. Mrten now socialises completely without alcohol and reckons he has never had a better time - dancing more and having more confidence to meet people when he goes out. He is convinced that there are many more people like him, who would enjoy clubbing without being under the influence, they just don't know it yet.
He said: 'Around 95 per cent of the people who I've told about my idea have been really positive, but they are also very curious about a lot of things, like how it would work financially and whether it will be boring, or will people. 'Well I can tell you that I have never danced so much as I do now that I am sober.
'And each time you go out without drinking, you come home and realise that you have become more confident in doing things like talking to people. Late-night drunken queasiness lopez could soon be a thing of the past if alcohol-free club nights catch on 'Because you no longer need the alcohol for confidence - you can do it on its own.'. The theory is that we really only get drunk most of the time out of habit, because we are so used to drinking alcohol with social activities that it becomes second nature.
Mrten said: 'If you want to drink, then drink. But don't just do it on auto-pilot because it's what you have always done. 'I just made a change because my therapist said that we often associate everything with alcohol.
'So going to a football game - you drink, going bowling - you drink, meeting up with friends - you drink. 'This club is a way of making people discover themselves without those toxins.'.
