About

I have started this blog so that I can share myself and my discoveries. I want the best things I’ve learned on this journey to all be in one place, because I never want to forget. My time in sobriety has been nothing short of a miracle. The people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made, the relationships I’ve repaired… I truly didn’t know life could be this way.

What I thought would be the hardest thing to do, turned out to be the easiest. Life is so much easier sober, why do we all think it will be so impossible?

I found the answer to my problem, and it’s to not drink. Not even one. At my first AA meeting I was told that I had to believe that, and I have never received better advice.

I believe with my whole heart and soul that I can not take a drink.

I have two young girls who will never have to see their mom use alcohol to “have fun” or to solve her problems.

Alcohol will never again rob me of my time and energy. My daughters will never think alcohol is more important to me than they are, nor will my husband. My girls will never see me give a bottle control of my body and mind. They will never experience seeing their mother alter her mood by sipping from a pretty stemmed glass. They will not be raised by a mother who is a slave. I have broken free from the insanity.

This is my story.

  1. Very nice words Rebecca. Unfortunately for them, my two sons saw me drunk many times. I drove drunk with them in the car. In fact, I drove WHILE drinking while they were in the car. I used to disguise my drinks, so they never saw me swigging from a vodka bottle or gulping a can of beer. I will be following your blog. I hope you’ll check out my ABOUT page and take a trip through my Archives. God and AA helped me stop drinking, smoking pot, and smoking crack, but I needed rehab and regular NA meetings to stop abusing oxycodone. Although living chemical free after 37 years of active addiction is extremely difficult, I have never felt better in my life. I’ve returned to college to finish my psychology degree, and will be looking for work as an addictions counselor dealing primarily with adolescents and young adults. God bless you and keep you during your journey.
