Today marks DAY ONE for my son... for this mama it also means I can breathe again. It’s hard to explain but I knew my son wasn’t right and I pushed Sunday and Monday to no avail... today he texted me and said “I smoked”. For me to see those words it was like a weight had been lifted off of my chest!! When he went into rehab back in September of 18 there were so many warning signs and I ignored them all, I had no clue. That’s why I share our story to help others, getting educated about addiction has helped me become a stronger mother, believe it or not!! I saw all the signs and kept confronting him, I knew he was safe but also knew I had to let it ride a little bit and give him space. Relapse starts before it even happens, it’s truly a process. So instead of tears today my heart is happy. Happy that we can take it one day at a time, happy that I was educated about my sons addiction and had the tools to help him. I think too, knowing that relapse is a part of recovery it’s not so scary anymore. So here’s to another DAY ONE. #motherofanaddict #recovery #recoveryispossible #educateyourself #livingsober #itsafamilydisease #odaat

✨Very often acceptance is not easy. There is grief to work through and often a whole sleuth of denial. 😫 But once we get there, the relief is palpable. We drop our shoulders unclench our jaws and get on with the luxury of surrender. 😌 💛💛🙏🙏 * * * Get your Step 11 meditation happening with our AA inspired MP3’s @ Meditations for Alcoholics.com.
If you haven’t heard, this disease doesn’t discriminate.... We’ve got a very real story to tell tonight that’ll remove some stigmas. A life that on the surface may sound perfect...wasn’t, as Jack Sides was a slave to addiction.

Hi all! The next handful of posts are going to be on some important benefits of SOBRIETY! ⠀⠀ A majority of you already know about these but it can be a helpful reminder and encourager to keep up the great work! Your mind, body, and spirit thank you! 🙌✨😊 ⠀⠀ So first up today — ⠀⠀ Sobriety supports BRAIN-TISSUE growth! ⠀⠀ Without alcohol you allow…. ⠀⠀ >> Thiamine or Vitamin B1 to flourish in your system (alcohol depletes it). ⠀⠀ >>Vitamin B1 supports the growth of brain tissue and new brain cells! ⠀⠀ >> More brain tissue and brain cells = better memory, coordination, thinking, and perception. ⠀⠀ >> Natural dopamine (the “feel-good hormone” associated with feelings of euphoria, bliss, motivation, and concentration) also begins to build back up in the brain ⠀⠀ Sobriety = REAL brain power! 🧠 Keep that brain strong! 😁💪 🧠 . . #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #sobernotboring #soberglow #soberfriend #community #soberchallenge #thehappynow #tellbetterstories #womensupportingwomen #findyourcommunity #drytribe #sherecovers #thesoberlife #hangoverfree #sobriety #mentalhealth #thesoberlife #recovery
I decided six years ago that my pain was not going to be used for nothing⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I knew that I couldn’t change my past so I took a hard look at what I had been doing and made a massive U Turn⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wasn’t going to repeat the same patterns I grew up with ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wasn’t going to let the pathology of what I was born into dictate who I was turning into⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I knew what I needed to do⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I needed to take a different road⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I needed to get on a path that would require going through every emotion, story, and belief system⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There was no fast route⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There was only a healing route⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And it was the route that required acknowledging any and every story of my past⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was a fearful person that let limiting beliefs dictate myself for far too long⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But once I healed those wounds, I found my purpose... my power… my love for my life⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are sitting there wondering how to navigate through the in-between or how to navigate through fear, I encourage you to listen to my recent interview with @loriharder on the @earnyourhappypodcast ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m sharing everything I know on How to Trigger a Breakthrough
Me jumping into this week just like this...
Daily Ponder "Many times our childhood solutions become our adult life challenges." -Unknown Solutions for me as a child were gauged to either protect or endear myself to others. Based in emotions. If I fail to gain new coping mechanisms as I gain years, the old solutions will drain me of my individuality and push me to unhappiness. #wisdom #dailyponder #thoughtfulness #zen #serenity #serenitynow #mindfullness #love #followme #follow #happy #smile #love #like4like #repost #personalgrowth #wisdomquotes #ameaningfulife #recovery , #wedorecover #mindfulnessinrecovery #johnbrunaquotes #mindfullifeprogram #livingmindfully #mindfulmomentswithjohn #sober #cleanandserene #emotionalintelligence #livingsober #cleanandserene #friendship

I admit that it hasn’t been easy. 😐 I’ve always struggled with body image. I have shed many tears over the “extra pounds” that I have and still carry. 💧 I have experienced many sleepless nights with self-conscious thoughts clouding my mind. ☁️ Sadly, many drinks have been a “fuck you” salute to my weight too. 🍻 ⠀ ▽⠀⠀⠀ Did (or do) you struggle with self-doubt and shameful thoughts about your body? How are you working to overcome those insecurities? Please advise. 💭 ⠀ ▽⠀⠀⠀ For me, I did seek professional support via therapy/counseling. I also have a great family (aka support system). 😛 Don’t forget though —IG can offer great support too. Now that I have ditched the vodka, I am beginning to see a tiny glimpse of victory and the rewarding aspects of sobriety are shining through. Learning to love again — starting with myself. ⠀ ▽⠀⠀⠀ ▽⠀⠀⠀ ▽⠀⠀⠀ #recovering #sober #livingsober #retiredlush #curves #sobertruth #aa #soberissexy #iamenough #codependency #sobernation #bodyimage #mentalhealth #selfdoubt #insecurities #changeyourthoughtschangeyourlife #perfectlyimperfect #teetotaler #cleanandserene #sobercommunity #recoverycommunity #recover #teamsober #sobergirlsrule #soberishot #selfconscious #anxiety #depression #loveyourself

Looking for sober winter fun in Wisconsin?? Then you must visit The Domes in Milwaukee! Reasonably priced and family friendly, a visit to The Domes is a therapeutic pick me up during these cold gray months. Go with a friend, your beloved, or just by yourself and breathe in the scent of soil and living things. The tropical garden is as good as sitting in a sauna! You must visit this beautiful healing space.
Romans 7:22-23 NIV [22] For in my inner being I delight in God's law; [23] but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. Greetings my old friends 😁, Set me free from the sin at work within me. I’ve formed this habit of asking God for freedom, whether or not he’d allow me to have just a taste of what pure freedom feels like living in a society governed by rules ever so often making me feel like to be me is a life walking in nothing but sin. See not too long ago post sobriety, I had another habit of checking myself into mental health clinics as a means to escape everything I felt inside as if each and every trauma I had in my life had never been dealt with, and these facilities at the time was my only way out to breathe even if it was only 21days at a time. The truth however, and funny how I’ve only come to discover this recently is that the prison created in my head by the very society I once blamed was never my problem within this world but the steel bars I put up myself as an anchor not to walk into the destiny set out for me, so now my prayers has changed. Now I wake up each morning, and instead of asking God for a simple taste of freedom I ask Him to keep me free from the prison I once created within myself so that even if it is just for today that I might truly live. Today choose not to be a prisoner. Love always, L #godfirst #dailydevotional #freedom #breathe #livingsober #milestonereached #onedayatatime #praise #love #jesusfollower

Got a lesson on hollandaise and egg poaching from chef Danny. This brings me to a point that’s so important. When I travel as a sober person, I plan activities to combat boredom. It’s not enough for me to just be someplace wonderful, I need to experience it. A day trip to Tillamook where we stopped at the Air Museum which was a surprise highpoint. We transported back in time to WWII and saw some of what the greatest generation gave us. The creamery and the charming Blue Heron gift shop were a delight. Witnessing God’s splendor at Ecola State Park and watching the sunset before hitting a meeting...all made the weekend a beautiful memory. “We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves.” #soberlife #cannonbeach #stephanieinn #tillamook #blueheronfrenchcheesecompany #ecolastatepark #hollandaise #eggslut #livingsober #grateful

OMG that's the truth. Being an alcoholic is the best thing that ever happened to me- that doesn't mean it has always been easy, or that I haven't been through hell and back- because I have. But quitting drinking and living a sober life gave me a strength I never knew I had. . . To me, as addicted people, we are the chosen ones. Sobriety is not for sissies, and you don't have this illness if you aren't strong enough to handle it. . . Addiction is vicious. It takes no prisoners and it doesn't discriminate. But you know what? I made addiction my bitch. I learned to face my life without substance, I learned to stand on my own without drowning in the bottom of a bottle, and I learned that I am strong and capable. . . Sobriety will test every boundary and insecurity. It will build you up and give you a life you never thought possible. Sobriety is brave, it is for the strong, and it is the most loving and empowering experience of my life. . . #sober #addicted #alcoholic #sobertalk #recoveryisworthit #wedorecover #crushingitsober #addictionismybitch #livingsober #courageousobriety #soberaf #angelapugh #addictionunlimited #addict #soberkc #12steps #aa #alcoholfree
• My sponsor is easing me into the 12 step program ,I’m just hanging around step 2 at the mo. I finally plucked up the courage to ask someone for help. Ridiculous to think I could fix this alone.. she has 20 years sobriety under her belt so a real help... people who don’t have a drink problem can’t really help as much as it’s lovely and kind I feel you need the true understanding of a fellow sufferer. ——— Sober#clean #soberliving #soberthoughts #alcoholicsanonymous #aa #12step #sponsored #alcoholfree #livingsober #asbillseesit #bigbook

This mornings meeting topic was resentments!! Wow. I needed to be at that meeting. I’m off work today and so grateful I got to hear some great sharing on this vulgar word. While it was going around my mind kept shouting, Page 417!!! Acceptance is the answer to all my problems. Not some of them, not just a few, but ALL! I am so blessed to have found this program and this fellowship. I would not be here today without either. #sober #resentment #alcoholic #drunk #exdrunk #livingsober #recovery
I’ve been seeing these campaigns & posters about marijuana legalization with the following slogan:⠀ ➡️𝗟𝗘𝗚𝗔𝗟 𝗗𝗢𝗘𝗦𝗡’𝗧 𝗠𝗔𝗞𝗘 𝗜𝗧 𝗦𝗔𝗙𝗘⬅️⠀ ▽⠀ I can’t help but stop & think... where was this posted in the bars that I frequented? Where was this in the liquor stores where I eagerly threw away most of my money? Why isn’t this taught to us in elementary or middle school? ⠀ ▽⠀ We are so quick to point fingers at those who use illegal drugs but what difference does it really make? Just because something is legal doesn’t make it safe. In my opinion, we should be rallying & using this same slogan against alcohol too. I wonder... if we start advocating for alcohol in the same way (to today’s children), could we encourage a modern, new approach to the first sip? 🤔⠀ ▽⠀ 〰️〰️〰️PHILOSOPHICAL RANT.〰️〰️〰️⠀ ▽⠀ ▽⠀ ▽⠀ #selflove #mentalhealth #alcoholic #recoveryworks #odaat #recoveringaddict #recovering #sober #sobergirl #soberlife #livingsober #sober #soberliving #sobergirl #sobriety #soberfun #soberlife #partysober #getsober #sobrietyrocks #nohangover #noalcohol #wedorecover #boozefree #soberaf #sobergirls #retiredpartygirl #love #hangoverfree #hipsobriety #sobermovement #boozeless #soberbabes
