Do i offend?

I don’t miss the days that I’d go to work and worry the entire time about stinking of wine. It didn’t matter if I showered, brushed my teeth, or covered myself in an ocean themed body spray. Being the professional drinker that I was, I had gum and eye drops

For The haters

When I stopped drinking I don’t think anyone believed I could do it. The shock I saw on their faces when I’d celebrate sobriety milestones helped motivate me. Our latest podcast (swipe up in our story), is called “we’ll addict the shit out of anything”. That’s a fact. We aren’t

Fathers day

My sister and I spent a ton of time together today. I’m in NC, she’s in CA, and technology allows us to zoom, FaceTime, and text. We had an incredible, inspiring support group meeting today (@coach.crys was on FIRE), then we called our dad to wish him a happy Dad’s

It didn’t need to be Friday for these sisters to have a happy hour. Sadly, though, these weren’t happy and they sure didn’t last for only an hour. We didn’t mind drinking alone. Too much to do to go out and socialize! Really it was that if we did, we


PAWS refers to any symptoms that persist after acute withdrawal has resolved. It can feel like a “rollercoaster” of symptoms, which come and go unexpectedly. Each episode of PAWS can last for a few days, and these can continue cyclically for a year. These symptoms can occur with any intoxicating substance,

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again. One of my “defects” is being stubborn. Like I will stick to what I think is right no matter what. It was a huge detriment when I was still in the cups, as I told myself I can drink what I
