My Not So Secret Diary


smugI actually feel like this now. The thought of a hangover is one if the greatest tools to stop me ever wanting to drink again! So let the sober fun begin! ..#Repost from @sobernseattle

Sober Inspiration

booksChristmas is almost here and New Year is in sight, maybe you’re looking for some inspiration to keep you going, or maybe you’re at the beginning of your sober journey? .Both my books are available now, on Amazon, in paperback and on Kindle. Perfect reading for these long winter nights!

No explanations needed

don'tIt doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you don’t have to explain your reasons for not drinking, but if you want to, that’s fine too!

Santa by Steam

santa by steamMagical Christmas moments! We took our little one on the Santa Express today. It’s the little things I love the most, like being present and not feeling any rush to get home to do anything else, like drink. That feeling never gets old!!

Book Repost

gail repostWhat a lovely comment to read last night! Thank you @gail_winstanley - so good I had to #repost! •My bedtime read @soberme_claire really enjoying it..Being dyslexic i can spell but have trouble reading certain text. This book i'm reading easily and absorbing all the info because the text (for me) is great, i don't need my green screen. .I love the way Claire explains what alcohol does to us in a really simple and uncomplex way and i love that, we don't need to be blinded by science. .Thank you Claire

Family Evenings

heliganWhat a lovely evening! It’s very rare we get to go out all together now the kids are getting older and have their own things going on, and that’s fine, but it’s so nice to be able to do something with all four of them at once. The time has whizzed by and they’ve grown up far too quickly. It used to make me sad but now instead it makes me realise how lucky I am to be able to really enjoy the times we do spend together, and make memories.

Alcohol Free Yumminess

na drinksWell these are rather yummy! I’m not normally one for alcohol removed drinks but we bought some for Christmas and opened them tonight. I can safely say these are just fine without alcohol - I’ll definitely be buying some more!
