I’m Never Going Back By Jo De Rosa

I’ve been waiting (all my life) for this date: 14th October 2014. And on its morning the first post in my Facebook timeline was a video of Lynda Bellingham on morning TV talking about cancer. She openly talks about colostomy bags, funeral arrangements and the effect it is all having on her family. Her story is heartbreaking BUT she is helping many others struggling with similar stories, with some saying, “She’s so brave to openly talk about it” This is something I have come across myself over the past two years of sobriety; many people emailing to thank me....Read more.

Doing It by Numbers – A Positive Approach to Reducing the Social and Public Health Harms Caused by Alcohol By Lucy Rocca

Christmas is fast approaching but thoughts of the festive season can incite a vast array of unwanted emotions in the non-drinker, from mild fear to out-and-out terror, with imaginings of booze being sloshed down people’s throats wherever one turns and the pressure to join in becoming almost unbearable.....

Filling the Bottle-Shaped Hole By Karen Perkins

The most recent Soberistas webinar which took place at the end of September was presented by life coach, Karen Perkins. Karen talked in great detail about filling the bottle-shaped hole, a phenomenon to which everyone who quits drinking will almost certainly relate; all those hours of spare time during which....

Pin ball wizard

Posted by seasidegirl on October 31, 2014 at 9:22 4 Comments

I think that's the name of the game, where the ball get's pinged around inside the machine, being whacked from side to side, and eventually falling down a hole? That's the only way I can explain my headspace at the moment. 

I am on I think…
