Halloween Before & After Sobriety

Halloween has definitely not been the same since we got sober. Halloween for me was always a reason to get dressed up and drunk. I just don’t honestly feel the same now that I am sober about dressing up and celebrating halloweeen and as a mom, my teenager is not into it. So we really […]
