New here?

This is the blog that I searched for 6 years ago, when I first stopped drinking. I wanted something to inspire me and to propel me through my journey but with a little humor and levity. I also needed advice and tips on how to maneuver my way through the social scene, as a person who relied heavily on alcohol to make social situations more bearable.  All I could find (at the time) was heavy-duty Alcoholics Anonymous material and even more serious addiction-related stuff–neither of which reflected my story.

I don’t want this blog to be all about alcohol and sobriety though (because heavy, man). I want to create what I enjoy reading, so I’ll also share some lifestyle posts, in addition to giving my readers some motivation to make a change in their lives–and that might have nothing to do with alcohol or sobriety. Maybe you’re surrounded by toxic people; maybe you’re not at your healthiest weight. Whatever it is that’s holding you back, let’s discuss and put it to bed. If you’re curious, I’ll show you what life is really like on the other side of the glass.
