Welcome to my blog and thank you for visiting!
Although my main topic is probably going to be about sobriety and keeping myself accountable, I will be writing about other things. It’s crazy, but since I have given up alcohol my head has exploded with thoughts and ideas and I love writing them down here. I hope that you enjoy it too and I love to hear any feedback from you.
A bit about me, I am a married 40 something Mum of 4 from the UK, I am also Mum to two crazy dogs, who have so far ignored all attempts at training and are my worst behaved children by far.
I have been a ‘drinker’ since my teenage years and fell in love with alcohol immediately. Unfortunately, I loved the demon drink a bit too much, why have one when you can have seven eh?. So, I am now sober and it’s been a revelation Who knew you could enjoy life without a drink in your hand? Who knew that you actually don’t have to feel shit all of the time because you are hung-over every bloody day!!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my blog,
P.S Why Singing sobriety? Well, I loved singing but I had stopped when I was drinking a lot. I am now singing again and loving it and also because sobriety is something to sing about.
- Chronic illness and an alcohol free holidayThere have been times when I have drunk purely to cope with pain and exhaustion. In the past, I definitely would have drank through this. I would have drank to dull the pain and drunk to wake myself up from the exhaustion.
- Singing sobriety with B meets Gayle on the Sober Bliss PodcastI had a chance to have a chat and a laugh with Gayle from the Sober Bliss Podcast last week. We talked all things sobriety, including how I did it, why I did it, hints and tips on how to get and stay sober and we had some giggles along the way. Even the dogs got a mention!!
- Long winter and admitting you are struggling.The main reason for this blog today, is to say that my mental health has been a struggle of late. But instead of reaching for a glass of wine (which I have thought of, I can’t say I haven’t) I have talked about it and I have looked at ways I can help myself.
- Relapse thinking
- You don’t need to hit rock bottom to get sober!
