Hi all! I am a woman who’s got her first taste of freedom: The kids are off to college and I am taking a break from a writing/editing/publishing career. For the first time in decades, I am relatively stress free. I remarried a few years ago and life has gotten much better … all except for one thing. The drinking habits I picked up along the way are still here. And worsening. And the piper is ready to get paid.
After many fits and starts, I started blogging in an effort to stay connected to people on the same journey as I am. And I set a lofty goal: one year of sobriety. I barely made it out of the gate before having to start over, but that’s OK. I deal in hope and forgiveness these days.
Thanks for stopping by.
UPDATE: On March 31 of last year, I made it to one year! I attribute my success to the blogging online community. If you’re looking for a way to start/continue/finish this sober journey, why not start a blog? It’s free at WordPress, and you will have a wonderful community to support you.
Never have truer words been said than this: If I can do it, anyone can.
SECOND UPDATE: Two year’s sober. Un-freaking-believable. Seriously.
Fall down 1000 times, get up 1001.
THIRD AND FOURTH UPDATES:
Four years, y’all. I do believe in miracles.
