The long and short of it is that for over a decade I spent my life not caring about much – drinking, smoking, and escaping from reality. My existence was that of a ‘functional alcoholic’, but not one of any kind of real happiness. That is, not until I was blessed to find sobriety. I had no idea what I was looking for when I first got sober, or the amazing gifts that a sober life had in store for me.
At 28 years old, I entered a 12-step program that allowed me to begin this journey toward peace, serenity and freedom. It’s not always roses – as a matter of fact, it’s often messy, confusing and painful – but it’s possible for me today because I am sober, and I am not alone.
I aim to live my life one day at a time, to connect with other people, especially women, who are on this journey of discovery and self-love. My goal today is to live my life happily, in sobriety, the way that I believe I was always meant to.
This blog is my journey, a document of my hope.
