On 27 November 2016, I decided to give up booze for a year and write about my journey.

This is my story.


Clearing Up The Crap

Imagine you are a computer.  Then imagine all of the things you have in your life are open pages on your computer screen, for example work, family, relationships, thoughts, emotions, habits, etc.  Then think of what happens to your computer when too many...

The Sober Fish Top Tips for A Dry January

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...

Why change a habit of a lifetime?

Sometimes, I feel like Sobriety is a bit of a cult, a bit like a religion, a bit like a secret club that until you truly embrace it, you can’t quite understand it.  Sobriety has literally given me my life back. Recently, several people have asked me whether now...

I was born to be SOBER! Oh the absolute irony!

I’ve woken up to a very exciting e-mail in my inbox this morning, regarding a project I’m going to be working on over the next couple of months, plus the next meet up is in place (30 June), plus it’s Friday & it’s summer! I am BUZZING!

In 2014, I bought the book but didn’t read much of it as didn’t like it. A couple of years later, I turned down an offer to watch the film as thought it would be shit.

Today, I finished the audiobook. What a story! I can honestly it was absolutely brilliant and kept me hooked right up until the narrator said ‘the end’.

If you’re looking for a good book to read/listen to, this is it. I defy you not to cry ❤️
