A New Life

Hi friends, I’m back, like I promised 🙂  The photo above is the view from my window, out of which I contemplate the new life that stretches out before me, full of scary emptiness yet bursting with possibilities (if you’re an optimist). I arrived in France a few days ago, after an intense couple ofContinue reading “A New Life”

Day 367: 1 Year Sober. HOLY F***K

Dear Past-Anne,  It’s the end of summer, 2019. You just flew back from Paris back to your home on the East Coast of the U.S.A. Tomorrow you start your sobriety journey. I know you’ve been drinking almost every day these last few weeks, and that you’re really anxious at the idea of letting the boozeContinue reading “Day 367: 1 Year Sober. HOLY F***K”

Day 339: 11 months and My First Sober Camping Trip into the Wild

You might be thinking “Who on earth takes alcohol on a hike? Aren’t you supposed to travel light?” … Well, yes. Except when drinking is your top priority and—so you believe—the “only” to enjoy things. So yes, you read me correctly. This was a sober “first” for me. In the past, if I went hikingContinue reading “Day 339: 11 months and My First Sober Camping Trip into the Wild”

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 313. The Pain of Great Goodbyes

We’ve all had ’em, but man, can they sting! All this meditation is supposed to teach you to live in the present, but more and more, as my final departure from the U.S. approaches, I find myself overcome by waves of nostalgia and sadness, which the Buddhists would say stem from clinging and an inabilityContinue reading “Day 313. The Pain of Great Goodbyes”

Day 230: The “Coronation”

Miracle Mornings! I hate waking up but I love coffee, so after 8:00 I’m willing to compromise. Anything before that and you’ll need a fire alarm to get me out of bed. So when I opened my eyes at 6:00 am to a dance of liquid gold coming in through the curtains today, I wasContinue reading “Day 230: The “Coronation””

Day 218: back to square one?

Don’t worry, I didn’t drink. I am just luring you in with a catchy title, because I have no soul. The square one I am talking about it relationship-related, not substance related: looks like Anne might be single again – or in need of some serious relationship counseling,.. Why am I boring you with theContinue reading “Day 218: back to square one?”

Day 214: 7 months, yo!!!!

Dear friends,  Thank you for still being nice to me despite me being so flaky. I’ve been lurking around reading and commenting, but have been putting off writing. And yet, on day 214 I cannot NOT write. So write I must, and write I shall !  Don’t know about you but I felt really depressedContinue reading “Day 214: 7 months, yo!!!!”

Day 162: Want vs. Need.

9:00am. My cat -who was peacefully eating breakfast- just poked her head through the kitchen door to see why the hell I just shouted “Duuuuuuuuuuuuh!!!!” in what must have sounded like Homer Simpson having sex with a T-Rex. Not that either of them would want that. Why am I shouting to myself in the morning?Continue reading “Day 162: Want vs. Need.”

Day 160: Survived a Week in Mexico (Sober) !

Yeeeeesss ! Coming home at 1:30 am every night, spending evenings listening to crazy free jazz concerts, sitting in the audience sipping tea/water/coke …. My week long vacation in Mexico City was AWESOME ! I am soooo grateful :  To be at a point in my life where “having fun/going out” and “drinking” are noContinue reading “Day 160: Survived a Week in Mexico (Sober) !”
