The Morning After The Life Before By Della Galton

Much is written about giving up drinking. How do you stop? How do you stay stopped? There are numerous tips and advice (some of it helpful and some not so helpful!) about these things. But not so much is written about something far more important – how do you stay happy without alcohol in your life?

The Four Habits of a Happy Soberista By Lucy Rocca

Three years, nine months and a handful of days: this is the amount of time I have spent on the planet free from the mind-warping, body-wrecking and life-crushing effects of alcohol. If you’ve read my books then you’ll know that I wasn’t exactly delighted about the notion of sobering up back in the dark but ultimately life-changing springtime of 2011, when I drank so much that I wound up in A&E covered in my own....Read more.

Haven’t you got a life to go to? By Chris

I’d never been able to control my drinking. For me, the first drink was always just the starting gun. Asking me to stop at a sensible point is a bit like asking someone to stop halfway through sex.

Whether implementing a major life change such as moving house or ending a bad relationship, or through adopting a new hobby or fitness regime, it can seem like a natural time in the year to clear out any dead wood and make some changes for the better.....

Booze and the Blues - How I Beat Alcohol and Depression By Libby Ranzetta

Drinking and depression are common bedfellows - in Britain, people with anxiety or depression are twice as likely to be heavy drinkers (1). Professionals will tell you that alcohol is a depressant and if you stop drinking, you will feel better. You almost certainly will (after the first few fidgety days). But what if your depression came before....Read more. Posted 31st January.

How my addict head works

Posted by expatmum on January 31, 2015 at 22:54 1 Comment

I'm trying to stop the chocolate and sweet binges.  I did this at 10 months sober when I couldn't face going up a second dress size since getting sober.  I'm petite (size 8 now) and if anything I needed to gain weight from my drinking…

Posted by Louise on January 31, 2015 at 21:16 3 Comments

I've always been a bit of a diva, I don't deal with stress well and it seems to send me into a bit of a tailspin. When I was drinking the alcohol kept my divaish outbursts mainly under the surface bubbling away, now I'm sober 33 years of…
