Recovery in lockdown

I haven’t written anything for a while because I feel I’ve explained what I needed to and leaving my blog at 2 years later seemed a perfect way to end. I often wondered if anything would bring me back and whether I’d have anything to add to My Recovery So Far but I never dreamt it would be about dealing

1 year sober

Well, where do I start? I have to pinch myself sometimes. Never in a million years did I ever think I’d reach one year sober, but I have and I am so proud of myself. It’s not been easy, I’ve really struggled some days and I’ve had to make some drastic changes but every single one has been worth it.

207 days sober

As the tag line says on this site “sobriety delivers everything alcohol promised”. That is very true but getting sober has actually brought a lot more to my life than I originally expected. Obviously, I knew I’d feel better sober but the main thing I wanted in the early days was to stop feeling depressed, anxious, worried and constantly knackered.

Every time I post about them I get quite a lot of messages from people saying they don’t trust them or telling me to be careful as AF drinks can lead to relapse because they

6 months sober!

I can’t believe I’ve managed it. Six whole months of sobriety! When I set out on this journey 6 months seemed so far away and I remember listening to a lovely lady at SMART Recovery talking about being over 6 months sober and thinking what it must be like to say that. It still blows my mind when I see

My week away

It feels like a distant memory now and I’ve only been back 2 days! I had a fab time at home over Easter. I didn’t make many plans as it was crazy when I was there for a week not long ago and I was shattered with all the running around. This time was much more relaxing and I got

Holiday mode

I go home for a week today (above pic).  It does me good to get back and see family and friends as island life gets to me if I don’t escape once in a while 😉 What comes with travelling is alcohol.  I’ve done it for years, whether I’m going on holiday, back home or a weekend away.  Whenever people
