Welcome to sobrietychick
Finding nirvana through sobriety
You’re invited on my road trip as I count my sober days and making those days count. Sobriety is a journey, not a destination. So buckle up and enjoy the ride!
I had no idea when I got my first buzz from a wine cooler at 10 years old that I would spend the next 30 years fighting my drinking demon. In August of 2009 I entered an out patient alcohol treatment program and spent the next 4 years enjoying the best years of my life. But somewhere along, the sly fox (my inner alcoholic) talked the sober me into thinking it would be ok to enjoy a drink here and there on special occasions. The next 18 months I played Russian Roulette with each drink I took and on February 13th, 2015 I looked hard in the mirror at a stranger who I told to get the F$?! out of my life!
I’ve always wanted to try blogging and I am no longer wanting to harbor years of thoughts and feelings, so what better way is there than to get it all out there in writing? I’m a stay at home mom of 3 awesome chicks and married to the most supportive man ever. Living one day at a time, in search of getting to know me again and enjoying the little things in life that matter the most. SobrietyChick is my life unedited. If you can’t handle the truth then you’re reading the wrong blog.
Enjoy the ride,
