The Controversial Topic of Nonalcoholic Drinks

Hi friends, I’ve been sober for over a year, and I’m fortunate that cravings very rarely hit me now. I barely think about drinking anymore, unless some new or triggering situation comes up, in which case I generally know what to do and have tools to navigate the whole thing. But yesterday, a new situationContinue reading “The Controversial Topic of Nonalcoholic Drinks”

Day 336: Survived my First Sober Beach Vacation With the In-laws!

With sobriety becoming a normal part of everyday life and the monotony of Covid-existence, it had been a loooOoong time since I had a sober first. This one I expected would prove to be very challenging, as I had never been sober on a vacation to the beach before (beach and evening drinks went togetherContinue reading “Day 336: Survived my First Sober Beach Vacation With the In-laws!”

Day 311: 10 Months Sober.

This picture was taken 5 years ago when I had just moved to the US. My heart was broken and I was severely depressed, longing to feel free. Willing to do anything to feel a bit of relief. Ironic, as I look pretty free on that swing. Today I have freed myself from so manyContinue reading “Day 311: 10 Months Sober.”

Day 293 : Feeling Better

Just a little update so I don’t disappear into oblivion. I feel like I have made it out of the tunnel of depression of these last 3 weeks. Like Claire at Ditching the Wine https://gettingsobernow.wordpress.com/, I halved my antidepressant medication two or three weeks ago, and am on my way to being med-free, probably sometimeContinue reading “Day 293 : Feeling Better”

Day 283 : Take that Criticism With a Smile!

Yesterday I Zoomed (yes, that’s a new verb) with my PhD advisor, who gave me much awaited feedback on the final chapter of my dissertation, As many of you know, I had been struggling for months to write it, and handed in about a week ago. Whereas she loved chapter 3, she asked me toContinue reading “Day 283 : Take that Criticism With a Smile!”

Day 280: Giant Ego

This is going to be a shortie. Basically, I’ve been experiencing a few cravings and quite a lot of thoughts about drinking these days. I’ve been daydreaming about social gatherings with friends, vacation, going to the beach, hot naked dudes (just kidding… not!), cold IPAs and laughter and carelessness and swimming pools and in-person connection….Continue reading “Day 280: Giant Ego”

Day 273: Black lives matter

I don’t feel entitled to even try and begin making commentary on the current issues, especially on a sobriety blog, but I also don’t feel comfortable pretending like this reality doesn’t exist. I am thinking of all of the people suffering in the world today, regardless of the bodies into which they were born. xxxxContinue reading “Day 273: Black lives matter”

Day 270: 1 Month Sugar Free

I haven’t thought about my relation to food in a while, although for many women one’s relation to one’s body often transpires in their eating habits. While I’ve always had a “healthy” diet (I’m talking whole grains, home cooking, organic fruit and veggies since childhood), during the years, I’ve also topped it off with aContinue reading “Day 270: 1 Month Sugar Free”

Day 261: Hit hard by reality

All this isolation has me regressing back into cocoon mode, where I forget about the outside world and the universe snugly fits into my safe little stay at home bubble. And then I watched this 12 minute New York Times documentary about medical staff and morgue workers in Queens, U.S.A. and shit got real again.Continue reading “Day 261: Hit hard by reality”

Day 250: The Dreaded Liebster Post

I’ve been putting this off for soooooo long, but it’s time. First of all, thank you to the lovely Claire at Ditching the wine, https://gettingsobernow.wordpress.com/ for nominating me and placing her faith in my ability to take less than 6 months to write this post (these awards are all around the blogosphere these days andContinue reading “Day 250: The Dreaded Liebster Post”
