“I think recovery from anything
is honestly the most badass thing
a person can do”


A huge thank you to everyone out there sharing their stories of recovery from alcoholism, addiction, mental illness, dependency and more.

Your badass courage is inspiring, and contagious. xo



  1. I believe that you are displaying a lot of courage, posting while you are in that “place”. So much of what you write takes me back to that time (which is just shy of a year now). I’m not even sure if I would have had the courage to start blogging back then… or the desire even. Someone said last night that every single person that comes in our life is for a reason. Reading your blog reminds me to be careful and not forget the life I had before, because I could be back there in a second. Just one sip, and I’m right there again. In hell. You are so close!! You are going to feel alive again- and FREE. I’m so excited for you. Hang in there… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Ahhhh thanks Janet ๐Ÿ™‚ You should be so proud of yourself โ€“ย congrats on coming up on a year! I only started this blog because I had already committed (in my head) to quitting. Just needed the final little push and accountability to take the step to go, detox and enter rehab. And, it happened. Before I committed in my head to doing this, I would *NEVER* have blogged or talked about it. Sadly, in my photos I post on Facebook etc. many of my friends always play “where’s the wine” game in my photos…because there’s always a glass or a bottle in every photo. It was funny for awhile โ€“ not so much anymore!

      1. I hear you on that. That fine line gets crossed and it’s just not funny or fun anymore. Thanks for the congrats, too! For awhile time seemed to stand still, as I counted sober ‘days’, but at some point it just starts to feel natural and you don’t even think about it. I hope you feel peace today. I’m completely lost in Photoshop today. I’ve been sucked in and I can’t get out…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. Perfect. Stay there. You’re obviously happy and comfortable so run with it!!! I’m just so anxious in a good way to get on with things. I’m wishing I chose an earlier intake day than the 21. But it is what it is. ๐Ÿ™‚ I needed time to prep so much stuff for all the businesses while I’m away so I don’t have to stress about it while I’m gone (I still will). But now that I’m here and willing and waiting I could care less lol!

      3. Yeah. Priorities start shifting when you realize it’s your life that is on the line. I kind of wish you had picked an earlier date too! ๐Ÿ™‚ But it is also good that you have time to get things in order. Anything that helps remove stresses ‘while you are there’ is good.

  2. Agreed! Life was so BORING being drunk all the time. I worried for a nano-second that my life would become dull without drinking. Truth is, I’ve done more terrifying, impulsive and exciting stuff sober than I ever could have dreamed of doing in my addiction. Anyone who doesn’t believe that is usually just afraid that it’s true. ๐Ÿ™‚
