My life

In Addiction

I drank for 30 years.  

As a teen, drinking was fun because it was new and forbidden.  I drank with friends in the woods and in our parents’ basements.  

In my 20s it was how I socialized.  Drinks after work. Nights out at bars.  Boozy Sunday brunches.

In my 30s my drinking became “adult” and “civilized”.  Married with children, I drank wine out with friends and at home to unwind after a long day with the kids.  Most of my friends’ drinking slowed down during this time.  Mine amped up.

In my 40’s drinking stopped being fun.  I drank every night.  It was not about socializing or unwinding.  I felt like I was on a ride that I couldn’t get off of.  Everything seemed fine from the outside but inside drinking was making me miserable.

My life


I have been sober since August 1, 2020.

Sobriety has given me back my confidence, my health, a sense of gratitude and the ability to experience true moments of joy.  I am a better mother, wife and friend.  When my head hits the pillow each night I feel thankful for who I am and what I have.  When I open my eyes each morning there is no longer that sense of dread or regret.  

Not drinking has given me a sense of freedom to be myself and experience life in full colour.
