This is me!
For those who don’t know I started this blog over 6 months ago. It was an anonymous blog which I started at the start of a 3 months alcohol free journey. I became part of a community of others going through the same things as me and I believe because of the blog it madeContinue reading “This is me!”

Out with the old in with the new!
As time ticks on and I go into my 4th month of not drinking I realise it’s the 4th of February and I have not planned to have the first drink yet.

Having a wobble at Christmas time
I’ve felt a little off in my mood the last few days and I’ve thought about having a drink a couple of times. I then feel disappointed for wanting to drink. I can’t put my finger on what’s wrong with me. My parents are here visiting Australia for the first time from the UK. WeContinue reading “Having a wobble at Christmas time”
12 weeks done (well 12 and a half but who’s counting). This was my initial goal and I couldn’t be more proud with what I have achieved and the differences I have seen in that time. I feel I need to quickly explain why I did this in case you don’t know me or haveContinue reading “The results!”
So I had my Christmas Party on Friday night. If this took place 6 weeks ago I would have probably not gone but now nearly 12 weeks done I am so much stronger. On the lead up I was apprehensive, very. I mean its a free bar. This would usually mean an endless glass ofContinue reading “Christmas Party”
