2020, or the Joys of Sober Dating During a Global Pandemic

Sobriety helps you peel off the layers (thanks @Ditchingthewine for the expression), and figure out who you are. I just moved back to my home country after being abroad for 6 years, and it’s taking a bit of readapting. My brain has to re-learn a set of cultural norms, switch to another language, adopt newContinue reading “2020, or the Joys of Sober Dating During a Global Pandemic”

Lonely Potato

Guys! Tonight I cried, for the first time in many months. I’m not talking about “shed an elegant tear during an emotional movie” crying … I’m talkin’ serious, “all hands on deck, close the curtains, no time to grab tissue, start weeping, now”, cried. I think hadn’t done that since October 2019, when I brokeContinue reading “Lonely Potato”

Holy sh*t, I’m a (sober) Doctor!

I did it friends! I successfully defended and submitted my PhD dissertation to my university, and I am now a doctor! The two hour long defense was so intense, I had promised myself to rest beforehand but I ended up revising until the very last second. During the defense, which was on zoom (and evenContinue reading “Holy sh*t, I’m a (sober) Doctor!”

Melancholia vs. hope

Hi friends,  I meant to write this post a couple of days ago, when I woke up feeling down and melancholic and lonely and in need of a bit of hope.  It’s fall here (as in most of the Northern hemisphere) and I’ve finally had a few days to settle down and feel lonely inContinue reading “Melancholia vs. hope”

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 301: Goodbye tattoo and skinny dipping

The big 300! In 65 days, I will celebrating one full year sober. I. can’t. believe. it. In the midst of my still ongoing struggle to finish the last chapter of my dissertation, I was swept off of my feet (and out of my misery) by my friend-boyfriend-partner yesterday, who took me on the mostContinue reading “Day 301: Goodbye tattoo and skinny dipping”

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 114: My First Sober Christmas

Happy holidays, y’all ! Pheeew… it’s over: I survived my first sober Christmas in a family of heavy drinkers. Yaaay !!! I am sure that many of you had some kind of an intense experience, whether it was discovering sober Christmas for the first time, dealing with family members and dynamics (whether pleasant or horrible),Continue reading “Day 114: My First Sober Christmas”

Day 104: Paris, Paris, Paris!

Ah, the City of Lights, my old home. I landed yesterday and spent most of the day sleeping after a 15 hour flight (I took 3 different planes!). After years of living abroad and going back and forth across the globe I don’t know where my home is anymore. I have grown used to sayingContinue reading “Day 104: Paris, Paris, Paris!”

Day 101: What is happiness?

As a stressful time (almost) draws to a close and the holidays approach, it is time to reflect (briefly, cause I ain’t got no time!) on the meaning of these last three months and on this HUGE achievement of successfully making it through 100 days alcohol free. For the first time in three months, withContinue reading “Day 101: What is happiness?”
