3 years ago

On 28 October 2017 I moved into my house share on the Isle of Man. It was where the biggest change I’ve ever made in my life started, 3 years ago today. As I sit here typing this I’m filled with sadness, excitement and pride.

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

Back to the 10k training

I’ve started running again. I was training for a half marathon last year but I had to drop out because of a problem with my hip/leg. To be honest, I still don’t know what the problem was but with some decent stretching and sticking to short runs I seem to be fine. I’m nowhere near as fit as I was

It’s time for a fresh start

Yesterday I hit 14 months sober and I started My Recovery So Far about this time last year. Over the last twelve months this blog has been one of the biggest parts of my life. I started writing for cathartic reasons when I hit rock bottom and putting everything down here has kept me on track and helped me turn

It’s only recently that I’ve realised how common anxiety disorders are. For years anxiety was ruling my life without me even knowing it.

The problem with Facebook

I’ve lost count but I’m probably on about my fourth Facebook account now. Many reasons have made me want to delete it but it’s usually down to relationship breakups and not wanting to trawl through all the pictures we had took together which drags up the past and reminds me of the wonderful memories rather than the shitty ones which

300 days sober

I used to hate the saying “I’m on a journey”, in the same way I hate all those corporate ‘buzz words’. It’s basically people kissing arse to climb the ladder in a sickening desperate way. Hit the ground running – usually has me rolling my eyes 🙄 Can I borrow you for a second? – no, but you can talk
