Still keeping on…

Just wanted to check in and let you know that I am still here. Still joyfully alcohol free. Still living life as it comes. I am three years without wine and proud of that. I am starting to notice the wiring in my brain is definitely finding new ways of perceiving the “benefits” of alcohol. My unconscious mind quickly recognizes the mis-truths behind the cultural marketing story about how life cannot possibly be fun without a glass in hand. My experience of life with alcohol tells me another sad, sad story. Not so much fun being had when I drank. These days finds me up early, working hard to launch a new dream business, days filled with exciting conversations, ample time to get to the priorities in life, to bed on time each night after a hot tea and yoga practice. Sometimes even a sauna if time permits. My sober life is where the fun is found. No more isolating. No more sickness. No more despair. I love my life and the only thing that could derail the peace I feel would be a glass of full bodied ethanol. No thanks. Being here in this place now is worth all of the work it took to get here. Wishing you peace xox

I am a woman who realized that alcohol was taking the joy and vibrancy out of my life. It was an old, fickle friend who turned on me. I needed to let the habit go. Simple but not easy. This blog and the connections I made here helped. A lot. And for that I will always be grateful. Without wine, I have created a beautiful and deeply meaningful life. I am now a certified recovery coach helping others create their own beautiful lives... Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed your words. A year ago, when I started looking at sobriety blogs, this was the first one I came across. I saw myself in your words and it hurt. But it also got me taking the first step on a journey towards a new life free from alcohol. I kept reading, educating myself, questioning myself, creating new possibilities.

    After months of winding down from wine, I’m one month into sobriety and there’s a long way to go. But every day brings new wonders. Your words give me hope that the best is yet to come. Thank you for writing this blog. xX

    1. Hello sisteroftemperance and thank you for your words that I have just read now… My sober life is full and clear and balanced and healthy. I don’t write so much anymore but I keep the blog up just in case my words and experience can help another along in their own sober journey. Seeing your comments makes my heart smile and well done on a month and believe me the best is yet to come… Peace and love xox
