Was this true for you? It certainly was for me. How many times do people say "I'm never drinking again?" How many times do people google the symptoms of alcohol misuse only to convince themselves they aren't yet far enough down the scale to justify quitting? Why do we even need to justify quitting? Sarah Hepola's Blackout- Remebering the Things I drank to forget, was the first 'quit lit' I read and was a real eye opener. We are often so consumed by the societal pressures to drink, that we try bloody hard to keep within that activity. Now I know it takes action, not activity to make a real change. I wish I'd known how great sobriety is years ago! It's not really talked about much. If it is, sober has a pretty bad rep. A reputation that is dangerous to people who are concerned about their own drinking. It's actually pretty damn great. I've sacrificed nothing worth having for sobriety, and gained so much.This is why I choose to talk about it. #thoughtoftheday #sobriety #blackout #alcoholfree #soberaf #change #action #selfcare #stigma #idontdrink #teetotal #sobrietyrocks #transformationtuesday

Hey guys, I'm just going to brag for a moment here. Today is my two year #soberversary ! The most important thing that has come of my sobriety is FEELING! I actually have feelings and learning how to sort those feelings out and express them is one of the most amazing gifts I've been given. So here's to not being numb anymore and #feelingallthefeels ❤️ #sober #soberaf #soberlife #soberissexy #refugerecovery #teetotaler #soberliving #sobermovement #tellbetterstories

Because I’m awkwardly transparent I’m gonna talk about Instagram growth.
.
Basically what changed this year is that what you post doesn’t necessarily reach all your followers.
.
Which is total 💩.
.
Not sure how to get around it, as I’ve tried most of the hacks online.
.
Anywho. If you’re not getting my posts, that’s why.
.
For a little ole blogger with big dreams it has stunted my growth.
.
But you know what? I’ve actually built some really solid recovery connections and I’m doing my part to help others. At the end of the day that’s all that matters.

I wish this was unnecessary.
But it's not.

I am glad to see more of this conversation happening, although it has to be in the wake of tragedy.
I am tired of seeing bloody stupid arguments circling online between "not all men" guys & others, mostly women on the other side of it.
Guys, this is not a time to call a pity party on yourselves. If you're not the one doing it, then be the one calling it out. Be the one to stand the fuck up & SAY SOMETHING. Anything apart from wimpy shit like, "but I didn't do it"

You're not helping anyone & your making yourselves look more bloody cowardly. Actions speak louder than you hiding behind a keyboard.
It's time.

I used to be a horrible person being addicted to drugs but now that I'm in recovery, I'm none of those things anymore . "Been a liar , been a thief" #eminem #edsheeran
People can change and sometimes it takes an institution like #thewaterford mental hospital in order to do so , sure it was scary sometimes but fought through , I went into a drug induced psychosis and needed help. We all need help sometimes and it's okay . #youarenotalone #riseup #sobertoday #soberissexy #sobernation #soberaf #mentalhealth #getloud

Nothing stays the same forever. Life is a constant state of ebb and flow. Whether you take today one moment, one minute, one hour or one day at a time, know that if you’re struggling, this too shall pass. ❤️

Today I celebrate 2 years. Today I am still free. Free from the extremely harmful and toxic grasp alcohol had on my life. I was a different person when I was drinking. I feel better now than I have ever felt while drinking. I’ve saved about $10k which has probably gone to tools. Saved relationships and better yet saved myself. For everyone out there in the same situation, I got your back. We’re all here for each other .

Drug addiction kills you spiritually. Shotgun to the broken heart. Dying on the knees begging please. For all that you are. A vicious psychological diabolical. Emotional riddle full of bad dreams. Monumental loss and suffering. Oh golly. No jolly. Oh gosh. “A double dose of Focker!”. Pistol whipped with a synthetic steel cosh. No easy way out. Going through hell is hellish. Seems like eternity we scream. Licking those incinerated...fire tortured wounds. Our deepest darkest despair we wonder, “will I ever make it through”. We do. We take as much as we are willing to take. Vast chasms of pain awake the chemically-induced slumber. Darkest hours break a new dawn. Enough so we can barely see. Listen do we learn. When the universal truth arrives. From chaos comes order. From instability comes balance. Omens and blessings happen. We thrive in the afterlife. The strive makes us stronger. Our phoenix arises from the ashes of addiction. Healed with a heart on fire. Burning bright with desire. Abstinence adorns us with power of discipline. Suffered in silence we seek comfort in celebration. Rubbles of ruined relationships build solid foundations for meaningful friendships. Failures strengthen our resolve to succeed. Courage is compounded by facing our fears. Losing the lot we find our true self. Losing love we feel love. Open hearts have everything to give. Hearts open have every reason to live. Within is where the healing begins. Addiction gifts us the greatest masterpiece. The sweetest melody of all we dreamed to be. Out of the darkness we see the light within. Out of the darkness a beautiful journey begins. With love -RB- #soberliving #sobriety #recoverywarrior #recoveryispossible #sober #soberaf #soberlife #soberliving #soberissexy #soberlife #recovery #recoverywarrior #recoveryispossible #recoverywin #recovery

Last week has been a big week in terms of emotional shifts. Processing & dealing with stress is something I have always found difficult. I tend to feel things quite acutely. Part of the reason I used drink was to take the edge off. Especially if I had been under a lot of stress.

I'm finding it easier to pinpoint where the feelings are coming from and trying not to have a knee jerk reaction which ultimately harms those around me and makes me feel pretty shit.
Being drunk or hungover stopped me from processing so much and I only ever ended up torturing myself more over the things that were affecting me.
I will never regret a clear head & fresh approach to life.

Day 19 of #thesober30 - how can you bring more SERENITY into your life?
I feel like this is SUCH an important thing that we need to pay attention to in our daily lives. We are always so "busy", so caught up in going here, there and everywhere, so invested in who is doing what (and who 😛), so consumed by our never ending to-do list, that we forget to find time to focus on ourselves and finding a little bit of peace when we can.
For me these days, I make damn SURE I have some quiet time to start my day (with a quick meditation/hypnosis and I try to either journal or do some orher writing) and time at the end of my day too- usually chilling by the fire with my journal and personal development work. I make it a priority because I know without that, I turn into a crazzzzzy person and no one wants that 😉😘

This picture was taken at the tail end of my active addiction. Stefan was over a year sober and had pretty much had it with me....I got sober a few months after this pic and managed to hang on to my man and my life! #sobercoach #sobercompanion #sobercouple #sober #soberaf #sobriety #soberlife #nobooze #noalcohol #onedayatatime #recovery #recoveryisworthit #alcoholicsanonymous

Thank you @gordonsginuk and @asda for launching this new soulful Tipple!! 0.5%ABV gin and tonic!! Which is considered #alcoholfree in Germany and the labelling laws in the UK will hopefully change in Dec.... ❣️❣️Gin was never a drink of my choice, mainly as it would take a while to take effect then after a few I felt a bit high! (Strangely that wasn’t the feeling I wanted 🤪). Now at pubs I’ll often have a tonic in a wine glass, with some lime and elderflower. So excited that these bottles look packed with flavour and hands down better alternatives to “mother’s ruin” are becoming more mainstream - how cool is the mindful drinking movement! 💕@joinclubsoda

21 MONTHS ALCOHOL FREE TODAY. and while i’m proud of that, i am still and always will be a work in progress. but what’s remarkable to me, is getting to experience life through clear eyes, which means i can see and understand my character defects, as well as learn how to work on my shortcomings. these are things i could not do when blinded by the darkness alcohol brought to my life. thankful for the continued strength God gives me, in addition to the drive and motivation to help as many as i can during this lifelong journey. #thankful #grateful #inspire #sober #soberlife #soberAF #bestyou #nevergiveup #loveyourself #hope #faith #blessed #alcoholfree ❤️

💗Freedom is a under-rated gift✨
::
💗When I feel restricted it is usually because I’m telling myself that I ‘have’ to do something...✨
::
💗The reality is that I have ‘chosen’ to do it which immediately makes if feel more relaxed✨
::
💗So today, I am choosing to go to work for today & for the next 6 weeks ... and then have the summer (6 weeks) to spend with my boys....✨#sidehustle ::
💗Much better already ..... breathe in, breathe out✨

1 in [roughly] every 10 adults have tendencies with alcohol that could lead to abuse (which can lead to addiction). Many people wait until rock bottom in fear of being labeled and isolated. Creating space for people to acknowledge their relationship with alcohol before it’s too late without that fear of a “life sentence” is crucial to changing the way addiction is perceived & treated. That’s why at Subjective Sobriety we believe in learning about alcohol from a realistic and science-based perspective in order to build the right tools to heal ourselves and combat challenges that arise through knowledge, awareness, and community. Simply not drinking isn’t enough. Continuously learning to be better and improve the quality of our lives is the ultimate goal. If you aren’t happy with the way alcohol is affecting your life, that is all it should take to re-evaluate it’s place. Let’s help open the conversation about alcohol and work together to shatter the shame associated with alcohol abuse. 💁🏼‍♀️👊🏻👯‍♀️

We have tried every imaginable remedy. In some instances there has been brief recovery, followed always by a still worse relapse.

When a person has both a mental health disorder and an addiction, it is called dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis can include any type of addiction or mental health disorder. When both exist together, it is important that treatment is designed to address each concurrently.
Those who struggle with depression and addiction benefit so much from dual-diagnosis treatment. This approach addresses all aspects of the disorder and addiction. These programs often focus on helping a person detox and overcome withdrawal symptoms so they can fully focus on their recovery. With counseling, peer support, education, and in some cases medication, dual-diagnosis treatment can reduce the likelihood of relapse. Treatment helps clients develop life skills and emotional intelligence to support long-term sobriety.
At A Step in the Right Direction, we understand the symptoms of dual diagnosis and we're here to help. Call us at 818 334 6892 to start your treatment today.

Haven’t posted in awhile so I figured f**k it, let me post this #progresspic. Ain’t nowhere near that @chrishemsworth #thorragnarok #stormbreaker wielding #strongestavenger physique yet, but that’s ok. It may take a little longer but once I seek #progressoverperfection I’m certain I’ll reach that goal. I feel good. I was never one for thinking #longterm. Instant gratification was the name of the game for this lame for a long ass time. All that is changing. Slowly but surely. Faith without works is dead. Right now. Ya boy bout to put that work in tho. #everythingislove #goodnightandgoodluck #soberissexy #soberaf #lifegoals #godbody #comingsoon

✨DO I MATTER?✨
.
Oprah often says there is one common denominator about all people, no matter who you are. We all want to know that what we do, what we say and who we are matters.
.
Recently my high school class had it’s 20th reunion. High school was a difficult and awkward period for me. Friendships were particularly difficult so when it was time to make plans to attend the reunion, it wasn’t even a thought for me to go.
.
I figured no one would want to see me. No one would care. I DID have a couple of friends reach out and ask if I was going. It felt good. It made me feel good that some people cared.
.
After the reunion, only one friend reached out, had hoped I would show. One friend. .
This is my reality. Yes, it’s just high school. Yes, it was a million years ago. But this brought up old wounds. .
One of my fellow classmates had started a thread about comparing our school to the one in 13 Reasons Why. I had avoided watching it because it’s an uncomfortable theme for me. But now it was time. And after watching it, it makes me wonder, were others just as lonely as I? Maybe I’m not so alone.
.
I know that I’m not alone anymore. I have some of the best friends and business partners, such as these women in this picture with me. They know my ugly truths and love me anyway. They elevate me to higher standards, and allow me to do the same with them. .
I have so much gratitude to be able to spend the next week, not only learning and growing myself and my business, but to be with these amazing women as we do it together. Not only will we be together, but we will also be joined with other likeminded women and men. Women and men that have their sole purpose to help others live more healthy and fulfilling lives. Women and men that TRULY care for one another.
.
We are about to take over Indy. If you’re in the area, you have the opportunity to join us, on Saturday, as we take over the streets for a SUPER workout. Let me know and I would LOVE to get you more info. If not, keep watching. I have some exciting and amazing experiences to share with you. .
❤️❤️❤️
