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

For all you sober curious friends! Many times... a night out with friends, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, weddings, holidays, wine tasting excursions, etc. would include consuming at least 3-4 drinks across the span of the evening for me. I remember during my annual check-ups when my doctor would ask how much I drink in a week, I definitely wouldn’t tell her the full story. I knew it wasn’t healthy to be drinking the amount I was, but I also knew a majority of my friends and the people I knew were also consuming a similar amount, so I didn’t think of myself as abnormal. Now, as I’ve taken this journey of sobriety, my eyes are being opened to all the major health risks and to the fact that many of my previous drinking days were considered HIGH RISK. 3 or more drinks in one day is considered high risk drinking for women. And more than 7 in one week. High-risk drinking means a higher chance of cancer and other health ailments. Fortunately, the human body is amazing and can regenerate cells and has the inner wisdom to heal itself. So, I’m hoping my body will heal itself of the damage that I may have already caused. If at any point you are considering cutting back on your drinking or stopping altogether, know that it’s never too late to let your body start healing itself. 💗✨🙌 . . . #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
>>AWARENESS<< ⠀⠀ A recent Healthline article titled “Women are Drinking More, but Get Less Help for Alcohol Abuse” sheds light on some of the critical barriers to treatment for women. The article also states that women’s high-risk drinking is up 60% from 2001 to 2013. Walking through the store the other day I noticed that pink alcohol was everywhere - Rose wine and pink hard cider and pink liquor. ⠀⠀ These companies don’t care about women’s health. Women’s livers. Women’s lives. Take back control of your life, your health, your well-being. Talk to your doctor about your drinking, if you have any concerns. Let’s have an important discussion about the issue and dissolve the #stigma . There are people who care and want to help. 💗 . . #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
Is this one hard for anyone else to believe, at times? Or all the time?! . . It’s a hard one for me. And at times I fear that if I believe it, then I’ll become complacent in life and not continue to grow. But as I’m typing this out (personal aha moment) I’m realizing I can truly believe I am enough right now and still hold onto the desire to grow and learn and expand my awareness. . . It’s a small shift internally, but an important one that creates a different level of consciousness. . . How about you? Is this affirmation easy or hard to say and truly believe? What are the fears that get in the way of believing this? . 💗✨ . #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
Take a moment and think about one of your goals... are there other thoughts that intrude or linger that may be interfering with a true and clear message to the universe? . Sometimes it shows up as self-doubt... sometimes it shows up as lack of time or energy ... sometimes it shows up as distractions... . Whatever it is that is getting in the way of sending a clear message. Identify it (“I see you”) — honor it — ask it if it has a message for you — and when you’re ready, release it — and refocus on your clear message to the universe. ✨💗 . . .

At times, when I feel deprived or like I’m missing out by staying sober, I immediately remind myself of a handful of benefits I am receiving by this choice I have made. It’s amazing how the more I focus on the good — it expands! It’s taking on a life of its own. .

I love Valentine’s Day. I know many people don’t like the commercialism of it, but I have such fond memories from childhood of people being kind and expressing love and affection on this holiday.

Ingredients * Strawberry sorbet * Chilled Ginger Ale or Club Soda * Diced fresh strawberries and/or sliced strawberries for garnishing the glasses, optional . Instructions 1. Place a few small scoops of sorbet in a glass. Pour chilled Ginger ale or club soda over the top. Sprinkle with diced strawberries, if desired, and serve immediately. . . . #valentinesday #mocktails #wellness #soberissexy #sobriety #sobruary #drylife #drytribe #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #sobernotboring #soberglow #soberfriend #community #soberchallenge #thehappynow #womensupportingwomen #findyourcommunity #zeroproofnation
Connection to others who provide —empathy, understanding, and validation — is one of the most powerful forces of healing humans have. . A person stuck in shame, isolation, and addiction can move toward healing and empowerment when surrounded by others who provide support and connection. . A tribe or network of support has been shown to be one of the most powerful sources in healing addiction, whether online or in person. The more, the better. . Reach out. Connect with someone new today, whether you’re feeling disconnected or you’re so filled up with connection and you can be a source of healing for someone else. . “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ~ Helen Keller . . . . . . #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #sobernotboring #soberglow #soberfriend #community #soberchallenge #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #womensupportingwomen #findyourcommunity #zeroproofnation #sherecovers #thesoberlife #hangoverfree #sobriety #mentalhealth #thesoberlife #recovery #soberaf
I found it so hard in my drinking years to admit my mistakes. I’d go to practically any lengths to avoid facing up to bad decisions or sincerely apologising where I needed to. It felt excruciating and shameful to have those kind of exchanges with people – far too intimate and authentic to handle when I was drinking to excess. It was such a painful way to live – trying to keep up a veneer of infallibility, despite the fact I was breaking inside. I thought I was getting away with it some of the time – but really I was just carrying around a whole load of unresolved mess. It’s a great freedom in recovery, to learn how to look squarely at the mistakes we make – to own our sh*t! To resolve things promptly and move on. It isn’t always easy to do, even in long term sobriety – but the freedom that comes from accepting our faults is always worth it. #onlyhuman #weallmakemistakes #emotionalintelligence #eq #soberful #soberfullife #livingsober #thesoberlife #alcoholfree #alcoholfreelife #growth #recoverywin #recoveryjourney #recoveryisworthit #soberaf #selfawareness #soberinstyle #zeroproof #soberminded #sobercurious #sobercommunity Photo credit: Cam Morin
It takes strength and courage to go against the grain and to do what is best for you and your family. Anne Hathaway modeled beautiful authenticity, strength, and wisdom last week when she reflected that she just doesn’t like the way that she does alcohol... that it doesn’t serve her as a professional or a parent. I’m so inspired by this community and the strength you have to go against the mainstream and to say, I don’t like the way I do it either, and to be willing to make a change. So much strength! 💗 . . . . . #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #sobernotboring #soberglow #soberfriend #community #soberchallenge #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #womensupportingwomen #findyourcommunity #zeroproofnation #sherecovers #thesoberlife #hangoverfree #sobriety #mentalhealth #thesoberlife #recovery #soberaf

Great article about the customer base for alcohol-free spirits growing exponentially and Dry January being just the beginning! . Ben Branson, founder of nonalcoholic spirit brand Seedlip, says, “In the last nine months we’ve seen about 40 new products launch in this space.” . Donnelly writes, “He expects the nonalcoholic offerings will continue to grow and innovate, noting the “incredible energy” he’s seeing now within booze-free beverages.” . The article ends with stating that the most punk rock and roll (aka rebellious... cool... hip... sophisticated... smart... etc) thing you can do is choose yourself over drinking! . As @karolinarzad says, the most radical form of self-love! 💗⚡️ . . . ⠀⠀ #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #sobernotboring #soberglow #soberfriend #community #soberchallenge #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #womensupportingwomen #findyourcommunity #flashesofdelight #zeroproofnation #sherecovers #thesoberlife #hangoverfree #sobriety #mentalhealth #thesoberlife
This actually happened to me last night...we ran into an old friend of my fiancé’s and she insisted on buying me a tequila shot. I politely declined twice, and then my fiancé had to step in and tell her I was the designated driver. It made me sad that ‘no’ wasn’t good enough, that we felt the need to provide an excuse, and I was sad for others struggling with alcoholism that aren’t in a place to decline such offers and/or don’t have the support I did. I have y’alls back, though! 💪🏻 #sober #sobertruth #sobriety #realsobriety #soberhumor #retiredlush #retiredblackoutartist #sobrietyforwomen #soberwomen #soberchicks #soberissexy #sexysober #soberchick #soberchicks #soberinstyle #soberfun #zeroproof #partysober #teetotal #teetotaler #sobergirl #sobergirls #soberandsocial #truerecovery #wedorecover #wecanrecover #recovering #alcoholfree #noalcohol #soberliving #livingsober
BRACELET GIFT ⠀⠀ Happy Friday Everyone! ✌️ things about me: 1. I love simple, pretty jewelry AND 2. gentle reminders I created this bracelet with my sober birthdate and its been a nice gentle reminder of how far I’ve come over the past 53 days. So, I’d love to give that gift to two others next Wednesday on my actual birthday! 😁💗 • If you would like a bracelet gift (polished gold, silver, or rose gold) with your sobriety birthday or a word that brings you strength in your sobriety — leave a comment with that word or date! • I will randomly select two people next week! 💗🙌 • • • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #soberglow #womensupportingwomen #sherecovers #thesoberlife #hangoverfree #sobriety #mentalhealth #thesoberlife #recovery #soberaf
Cosmo is getting in on the conversation of sober curiosity! • The article writes, “In an era of self-care ­obsession, Warrington’s mindful drinking approach is catching on. “People are ­thinking, ‘I’m someone who invests in my health, so why am I undoing that work when I go out?’” she explains. She’s right that drinking alcohol isn’t synonymous with wellness. • Recent research shows that even one drink per day can increase your risk of cancer and death in general. And a single adult beverage can mess with the quality of your sleep, says Richard Saitz, MD, an addiction specialist in Boston. Over time, drinking can also contribute to conditions like depression and anxiety.” • Let’s keep the conversation going, past January! 💗✨ • • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #moreyouknow #dryjanuary2019 #teetotal #drylifetribe #ipreview via @preview.app
Here are some of my favorite photos from our engagement shoot this past weekend.

Oh my gosh so much amazing stuff over the past week I haven’t shared because I’ve been insanely busy....BUT let me just say the first thing I want to share is the Justin Timberlake concert I went to with my girlfriends. Everyone drank but me, I drove them around and had an amazing time! I also got to see what responsible drinking looks like, which still blows my mind! If I had drank, I definitely would have blacked out and not remembered the concert, which would have been a shame because our seats were amazing and it is one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

A lot of you know this already... but to those who don’t, this book is a GAME CHANGER!!⚡️ • “This Naked Mind”, by Annie Grace, opens our eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. She also shares her candid personal story and helps every reader understand their relationship with alcohol at a deeper level. • I listened to the audiobook first and then bought a physical copy so that I can continually use it as a resource. It’s packed with such helpful and interesting information! Truly a MUST read... and re-read... and read some more! 😄💙 • • • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #anakedmind #thealcoholexperiment #teetoal #anniegrace

Susan Cain author of “Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts” reminds us that introversion isn’t something that needs to be cured and she encourages people to spend their free time the way they would like to, not the way they think they’re supposed to. • • So, if you are naturally an introvert, like me, and have used alcohol to help yourself become more extraverted in social gatherings… let’s remind ourselves that it is OK to be on the quieter side, to need alone time, to prefer smaller, more intimate groups over large groups, to have a couple best friends, to listen more than we talk. • • Let’s remind ourselves that introversion is something to be celebrated and comes with SUPERPOWERS such as creativity, listening ability, empathy, deeper study, and longer focus. Remind yourself that in this loud and crazy world, your introverted ways are needed. 💙✨ • • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #introverts #susancain #drylifetribe #teetotal #drylife

So far in my 50 days of sobriety, I have found that some social events have been very challenging to get through without alcohol. But, I have never woken up the next day wishing that I had drank! Instead, I have been filled with feelings of gratitude for having gotten a decent night sleep, having energy for the day, and for staying true to my commitment of living a healthier life on all levels. 💗✨🙏 • How about you? • • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #dryjanuary #anxiety #drylife #drylifetribe #teetotal

Too good not to share! • While on “The Ellen Show,” Anne Hathaway revealed that after a night of drinking rum with Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves, she decided to quit drinking for the next several years to focus on raising her son. • “I quit drinking back in October, for 18 years,” Hathaway revealed. “I’m going to stop drinking while my son is in my house just because I don’t totally love the way I do it, and he's getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the mornings. I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school, I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover and that was enough for me. I didn't love that one.” • Thank you for sharing with the world, @annehathaway ! And for making it OK to question mainstream culture and to making better decisions for yourself and for your family 💞 • #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #annehathaway #teetotal #drylifetribe #dry #dryjanuary

“To be authentic, we must cultivate the courage to be imperfect — and vulnerable. We have to believe that we are fundamentally worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are. I’ve learned that there is no better way to invite more grace, gratitude and joy into our lives than by mindfully practicing authenticity.” Brené Brown . . . #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #dryjanuary2019 #teetotal #drylifetribe #brenebrownquotes #brenebrown #authenticity
“The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt, but in spite of doubt.” - Rollo May, 1975, The Courage to Create . Similarly, courage does not mean that there is an absence of fear, but rather the ability to push through — in spite of the fear. . Doubt and fear have been two very present emotions in this sobriety journey so far. So many times my thoughts go to… . “What if I fail? Am I sure I want to do this? What if I actually can’t keep this up and then it becomes embarrassing that I tried? Let’s keep this a secret from family and friends for now… Is this really how I want to live the rest of my life?” . So many fearful and doubting thoughts! . In psychotherapy, sometimes a therapist will do an enactment called the “two-chair technique” or the “empty chair” and will ask a client to imagine someone or some part of themselves in an empty chair next to them and to have a conversation with it. It can be powerful in helping the client work through internal conflicts and to identify and develop different parts of themselves. . So, today I am putting my fear and doubt in the empty chair next to me and saying, “I see you, I know you are here with me and you are a part of me. ⠀⠀ I accept that you are part of the process of change. When you become triggered, I will sit with you and try to soothe you. And yet, in spite of you, I am still choosing to live my values of health and wellbeing and to stay committed and courageous moving forward. ⠀⠀ But, thank you for making me human. 🙏✨ . . . #soberissexy #sobriety #wellness #sobertribe #sobersisters #alcoholfree #soberlife #livingsober #soberinstyle #dry #women #mentalhealth #dryjanuary2019 #rollomay #doubt #courage #perseverance #love #therapy #twochairtechnique

This makes me so happy to see!!! • Recent article from Forbes about health-focused restaurants creating fun alcohol-free alternatives... • “There is a big trend of people shying away from alcohol and you can’t limit your scope because people are broadening theirs,” Snapp says... • Snapp isn’t fond of the word “mocktail,” preferring terms such as “refreshers” or “house made tonics” or “sparkling teas.” • • Excited to try new refreshers and sparkling teas!

When we grow, we don’t fit into old clothes, shoes, or … relationships. I had an insight the other day that, since I’ve accepted sobriety into my life, some of my closest relationships will inevitably change. . . It’s not easy to think of losing some of my closest tribe members, but there were feelings of peace and acceptance that washed over me, as well, as I reminded myself of the reason for the changes — to care for myself — emotionally, physically, and spiritually — and to grow. . . Along with the peace and acceptance, there is a hope of finding new, close bonds with people, who share a similar desire of becoming healthy — on all levels, as well. . . I have found many of you here on IG, which I am so grateful for, and I hope to continue building my dry life tribe. If you have any suggestions of how you’ve built your tribe, I’d love to hear! 💗✌️ . .
