November 26th 2014 is Soberistas’ Second Birthday – We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby By Lucy Rocca

On November 26th 2014 Soberistas will be two years old, although to me it feels as though it has been in existence for much longer than that. Personally, I can barely remember a time when I didn’t log on every day to see the familiar orange and green colours of the site, when I didn’t share my life (albeit within cyber space) with thousands of amazing and inspirational people from around the world who are fighting the same, brave fight. Most of all, I can hardly recall a life which involved....Read more. Posted 9th November.

I had lost track of the number of days I've been AF, so I decided to break out the calendar and count.  I hit day 100 yesterday, such a milestone on a long road that has mostly been satisfying, but sometimes regretful.  I really do miss and want…
