6 Years NO Alcohol

Congratulations to my husband on 6 years no alcohol. Yup he has a beer in hand 6 years later, a Heineken 0.0% because at this point having NA drinks doesn’t bother him or make him want to drink, he just enjoys beer and having a NA beer while watching the game and that’s ok. What […]

5 Years Ago..

5 years ago my dad picked me up from jail. My fiancé at the time was starting a new job so he surely wasn’t going to pick me up. My fiancé was newly sober and I had went to the beach house and got a DUI. Honestly I’m glad it happened. It was the wake […]

Toxic Positivity

Absolutely love this book I am listening too right now by a therapist. It highlights so much truth in just the 25% I am into it. I don’t believe in toxic positivity, I don’t believe it is in gods hands and that’s my belief and it’s ok if we have different beliefs. I do not […]
