The Eternal Quest for the Alternative Escape Route

** Warning ** I may say some things you don’t agree with & for that I’m truly sorry but this is my opinion & my opinion only & not against any individual in any way ** I’m going to be honest. Personally, I’ve never understood ‘blipping’. I know it happens & that not...

My Sobriety Onion

Following my emotional episodes this week, several people have compared my sobriety to an onion, peeling away the external layers to reveal forgotten buried layers beneath. Isn’t it ironic that onions also make you cry?! If you’d told me a year ago, when I was...

Being the problem that is me

My mate Russell Brand has got my brain fizzing with stuff. I really enjoyed what I listened to today, particularly around linking food addiction to other addictions. Because I’ve got the audio book, I can’t refer to his exact words but Russell said something along the...

31 days of freedom 

I have just read the most awful article on Sober For October. It was so shit, I’m not promoting it by telling you what is it but it riled me so much, I thought I’d write my own. Some people think a month off the booze is a gimmick. I’m guessing those people have never...

Sober For October Tips

The key to success is meticulous planning. Personally I avoided situations where there was going to be copious amounts of alcohol. If you were on a diet, you wouldn’t hang out in McDonald’s would you?  Download podcasts .. I particularly enjoyed the Recovery Elevator...

‘Worry is a misuse of your imagination’

Worry. We worry about everything. What happens if? What will they think? What if I don’t? What if I do? Our mindset determines what we are and what we become. I’m a massive believer in the perpetual cycle of doom, where one things goes wrong, we dwell on it which...

How Sober Fish began

My real name is Dawn. My nickname is Fish. You may think it’s because I drank like one. You wouldn’t be far wrong. My inspiration to ‘go sober’ for a year came from this article  https://www.boredpanda.com/before-after-sobriety-photos  I was amazed at how much better...

SWF – Sober White Female 

As most of you know, I'm looking for love. In fact, I've been looking for love for a long time but only appear to attract knights in tin foil (shamelessly stolen) instead of the Adonis I deserve.  Recently, I have felt brave enough to get back on the dating scene...

The last (foreign) hurrah

A year ago tomorrow, I set off on my final drinking holiday ever. In one word, it (I) was carnage.  Of course, I didn't know it was my last drinking holiday ever but it certainly contributed to my eventual abstinence of the poison ruining my life The first part of the...

#9months 

9 months is a long time. It takes a human female 9 months to grow a baby. One of the reasons it takes so long is to allow you to get yourself ready for the impending arrival both physically & mentally, and for the massive lifestyle change ahead. Soberdom is no...

Popping the sober dating cherry

Last night, I popped my proverbial sober dating cherry. Not literally, I hasten to add, but I climbed back on the horse of Tinder and got myself a date. Dating is a minefield when you're drinking but feels even harder when you're not. It's not a pleasant experience...

My French Vacance

I've always been an over thinker, a predictor of the future. Before every situation, I've already pictured it in my mind & thought of all the possible disasters that could happen. I've always been this way & guess the reason is because when things work out well, I can...

Sleep when you’re dead?

Tired. I was always tired. Most of the population is tired. Everyone is quick to blame it on work or kids or a late night out but actually, one of the most common reasons for your tiredness is the poison rattling around your body.  Before Soberdom, I would complain of...

A Special Guest Blog ‘Becoming teetotal’ by Lysha Holmes

I had my first alcoholic drink when I was about 15 at our school do when my friend Heidi & I shared a bottle of Thunderbirds before we got to the disco. Unsurprisingly, by the time we staggered there, I was paralytic and passed out on the sofas. I don't  remember...

A day of tiny miracles

This weekend is my baby brothers 40th birthday .. he celebrates every year in the same way by having an all day session in a pub in a beautiful setting near to where we live. Everyone looks forward to the annual pilgrimage .. some come by boat, some by bus, some by...

‘Summer breeze, makes me feel fine’

As Dawn the Drinker, I was well known for getting far too excited, far too early. For example, I'd always get hammered the night before a wedding in anticipation for the next day & generally spend the first few hours at the ceremony feeling like death, propped up...

What is ‘forever’ anyway?

One of the common things I've been asked this week is how to take the plunge, how to 'go sober' forever? It's not easy. I'm not going to tell you it is for several reasons. 1. You will blame me when it's bloody hard 2. It is bloody hard 3. If it was easy, everyone...
