when temptation strikes

It was a touuugh weekend, to say the least. I probably should lead with the disclaimer that I resisted the urge to drink, even though I really wanted to for the first time since I stopped. I had a triggering moment that made me feel super insecure and small. I wanted to run and hide... Continue Reading →

traveling ​boozeless

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I traveled to Atlanta to visit his family for his sister's birthday. I'm not used to taking weekend trips where alcohol isn't in the equation, so this was definitely a test for me in more ways than one. First of all, my boyfriend and I traveled separately. He was...

I had never gone camping, and it seemed like a great alternative to just sitting at a bar getting hammered. I genuinely told both my boyfriend and myself beforehand... Continue Reading →

where i’m at now

Wow. My last post was almost two years ago. So much has changed since then, but some things have stayed the same. One thing is for sure: You can't move away from your demons, a relationship (even with your dream man) won't solve all your problems, and the people around you aren't 100% to blame...
