Join Us in Discussing the book Chasing the Scream by Johann HariRead more: Join Us in Discussing the book Chasing the Scream by Johann Hari
I first read Johann Hari’s book Chasing the Scream, in September 2016. I was 18 months sober and working with my orchestra on a cruise ship. While my colleagues were all enthusiastically enjoying the all-you-can-drink hospitality I found refuge in the ship’s library. I had read a lot of what is often called “quit lit” in […]
Top Sobriety Blog Posts to Help You Stop Drinking and Stay Alcohol-FreeRead more: Top Sobriety Blog Posts to Help You Stop Drinking and Stay Alcohol-Free
Sobriety blogs, and blogs in general, have evolved a lot since I read my first post on Unpickled back in 2015. In 2015 blogs were mostly personal. Blogs, and especially sobriety blogs, were an expression of an individual’s ideas or experience enthusiastically shared in this new wide open forum of the internet. Blogs had not […]
Alcohol is…An Alcohol Awareness Month Public Service AnnouncementRead more: Alcohol is…An Alcohol Awareness Month Public Service Announcement
ALCOHOL IS A DRUG Alcohol is not a wonderful magic potion. It’s just a drug. I would love to get the word out; to undo the misinformation and the manipulation by alcohol advertising which creates false expectations of how “good” alcohol will make you feel and how it’s “just what you need”, because “you worked […]

April is alcohol-awareness month and I would like to invite you to join me in celebrating awareness with an alcohol-free month.

My first taste of alcohol was during my senior […]
Blackout – A Boom Community Book Club SelectionRead more: Blackout – A Boom Community Book Club Selection
April is Alcohol Awareness month in the U.S. and I’m thinking of the absolute opposite of awareness… alcohol-related blackouts. I often drank to the blackout stage, probably because I crammed my drinking of large quantities into pretty short periods. Remembering the last hour of my evening was impossible. Usually, I drank at home, but that […]

Feel Like You Can’t NOT Drink?Read more: Feel Like You Can’t NOT Drink?
When I first stopped drinking I recall endless questions and scenarios racing through my head : “What about Christmas? I can’t NOT drink?!” “My birthday is in a few months, maybe I’ll wait and start “sober” after?” “Crap, summer months: I drink A LOT, and with our hotel customers, what will happen? These people bring […]
Perspective from Sober at 60Read more: Perspective from Sober at 60
I used to point fingers at other people’s problems with alcohol instead of looking at my own drinking. I had a real problem being truthful with myself. It was hard to admit but I had a lot of growing up to do once I put down the bottle. This past week I turned 60 and […]
10 THINGS SOBRIETY HAS TAUGHT MERead more: 10 THINGS SOBRIETY HAS TAUGHT ME
I think it would be fair to say that the last few years have been a little tricky for humankind. The last few years have been full of pain and fear and disconnection. News and pictures of political tension, pandemic, global warming, and war are hard to escape. I know, for myself, this can sometimes feel […]
