    Woman with Money Get a Refund on the Alcohol Tax

  • Empowerment Does Not Come in a Bottle – A Tribute to Women from Women

    Time Magazine, The Guardian, Vogue and The New York Times all reported in 2020 that alcohol related deaths have risen sharply since the beginning of this century and particularly among women. But our culture is still awash in pretty pink gins and fruit flavored vodkas designed to appeal to the traditional tastes of women who […]

  • Learning to Feel the Feels at 8 Months Sober

    I’ve been alcohol-free for almost 8 months and that means having to face a whole lot of things that I once drowned out with excessive daily drinking. I am in much of the same mindset that I was when my son was born 18 years ago. Nothing in my environment had changed back then except […]

  • Alcohol I’m Over You – Sober is Just Smarter

    I moved less than a year ago and am still organizing and reconfiguring some books and journals. I have been struck by how many times I open a journal or notebook and see “I drank too much last night, I need to stop.” Six and a half years ago, I was at a very low […]

  • What’s it Like to Live in Sobertown?

    I was recently introduced to a podcast called SOBERTOWN at Who are they at Sobertown? We refer to ourselves as “Sober Warriors” because the fight against addiction is a grisly battle that takes no prisoners. Real people die every day from complications and repercussions of long-term alcohol use, a tragic end that is 100% preventable […]

  • 3 Songs to Inspire You in Living Proudly Alcohol-Free

    Sobriety and freedom were not words that I associated with one another until very recently. When I realized that I needed to stop drinking I was terrified that my life would become dull. Without color. Without creative focus. And then I read a book by Lucy Rocca called How to lead a happier, healthier, and […]

  • The Adventure of Discovery in Recovery – A Podcast with Thoughts on Neuroplasticity in Sobriety

    escape the ordinary neuroplasticity in Sobriety

    I once thought that if I was going to be successful at staying sober long term, I would have to join Alcoholics Anonymous and work the 12 steps, but as I near the beginning of my 7th-year alcohol- free, I have found that following my own path has meant that rather than “living in recovery” […]

  • Getting Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable  – Learning New in Sobriety

    It’s hard to believe that I am one year sober today. One year ago when I stopped drinking, I couldn’t imagine where I would be now. I felt so guilty then, and ashamed of the draw alcohol had on me. I didn’t realize it’s grip until all of a sudden I did. It was very […]

  • Solve the Puzzle of Self Love

    Sobriety and life right now feels to me like I’m building a giant puzzle. I had some pieces to start but didn’t know where they belonged or how they would fit. I felt unsure, nervous and even terrified of ruining the puzzle or losing the pieces, but I started building it anyways. More pieces started […]

  • Everything I Needed to Go Sober I Learned Teaching Preschool

    I’m a preschool teacher. A newly sober preschool teacher who stopped indulging in “wine time” when my drinking slid from concerning, to alarming. I’ve been noticing as I write my way through my second year sober that the first months of my sober journey followed the curriculum I teach at school pretty closely. We start […]

  • Celebrate A SOBER Super Bowl Sunday

    Are you enjoying life with two free hands instead of one wrapped around a drink? Congratulations! Alcohol-free is freedom! When I was drinking I could not imagine a Sober Super Bowl Sunday. I’d spend the game yelling at the tv, and the more I drank the louder I got. Then I’d end up embarrassed the […]
