Happy New Year

Happy new year to all those on this sober journey with me.

If you are new, and seeking, you can do this. It is not only worth it, it is amazing. The potential that come with giving up alcohol is unbelievable. And I know you don’t believe me…but read my blog, or others. It’s true!

For those who have been around a while, thank you. This community is a special and powerful force.

2016 was a really chaotic year for us, but we ended it wiser, full of gratitude for the love and support shown our community in our time of need and comfortable in our own home. Gifts.

It was also a year of huge opportunity. We travelled to over twenty concerts. Everything from slayer to Jennifer Lopez, Chris Cornell to disturbed. Each and every one was an experience amplified by the fact I was clear headed and engaged.

Every day we get a chance to begin again. Take this opportunity to make your life beautiful.

stillness and peace

  1. Happy New Year Anne! Thats is very wide music taste you have there. Slayer and Jenifer Lopez are on opposite ends of the scale:) I love live music, something I want to be seeing more of this year. xxx

    1. Ha ha. We are even going to see Garth brooks in February (my husband does not want to, but i had a country phase in my youth and Garth was it).

      Love music sober is fabulous. And you can drive home.

  2. Happy New Year to you my friend. You are a constant source of encouragement in this sober universe. I wish you all the best for 2017

  3. Happy New Year Anne! I’m ready for 2017 as 2016 ended kind of badly, in my opinion. I bet you are too. You showed lots of strength and courage in 2016, you made us all proud.

  4. Hi Anne, I have followed your blog for awhile, but do not comment very often. I think reading AND commenting should be one of my sober tools and force me to stay in the game. I have been down this road of stopping and starting for a few years now. I made it to over 100 days on Belle’s challenge last year. Now I am trying again. I hope this time will be the last time. Thanks for all of your support.
