Hello there :-)

So my New Year’s resolution, or plan if you like, is to start writing a blog. Heaven only knows why – there are so many brilliant blogs out there! Who would want to listen to little ‘ole me waffling on? Perhaps nobody. But really, this is for me. I’m planning to treat it like a diary. But hopefully, because of the ‘online’ element, and because I’ve paid for a whole year to use the web address (domain is it?!) I’ll actually keep up with it.

  1. Thank you so much for the “like” – and welcome to WordPress. 🥰 It can be super fun in sobriety blogland. It’s a fantastic group of people. There can never be too many sobriety blogs IMHO. There is always someone out there, exactly the same stage you’re at, possibly more copacetic with your personal vibe than anyone else’s, that it will make a difference for, and possibly vice versa. Not to mention “the more the merrier.” 👯‍♀️👯‍♂️🎉🙌
    I think it’s awesome that you will treat it like a diary. Those are the best ones to read. ;)) ❤︎


    1. Thank you so much! I’ve been reading your blogs for a little while now and I love your writing. I haven’t quite gotten into the swing of blogging yet and it takes me ages to write anything… I’m in awe of your wonderfully fluent posts.
      I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it. I”m on 165 days – that’s about 5 and a half months… and still trying to work it all out. How to be OK with this new way of living. How to navigate life without booze. It has changed so much.
      Take care 🙂

      1. Wow that is so very kind… it means a huge lot to me, thank you. 💛
        I don’t know if this will be consolation/helpful, or the opposite, but the only way I can get past my own inner critic is if I pour it out, then hit publish. Then I spend the next day (or hour) cringing every time I think of the post. 😉 But if I spend too long editing it, it either doesn’t get published, or it does and then I dislike it even more afterwards. And I used to be an editor.
        “Feel the fear and do it anyway” – I love this quote when applied to brave creative acts. What you’re doing is brave.

        Five and a half months is amazing. Sober momentum rocks.

        Much love, xoxo Nadine :))


  2. 165 days is brilliant
    Awesome and keep going with the blog. It’s a huge help to share here. Some of the loveliest people I’ve ever had contact with. No judging, just gentle support and help.
