Sobriety is a scary word!

On episode 158, I talk about my own journey and the process it took for me to come to terms with my sobriety.

If someone told me when I was young that alcohol would mess up my life, I wouldn’t have believed them.

For a huge part of my life I drank excessively and at one point I felt like life and wine needed to go together.

After years of wondering whether or not I had a problem, I had to listen to my own thoughts and feelings instead of anyone else’s, and I made the difficult choice to quit drinking.

You are never alone if you feel like sobriety is something you never planned for your life.
