Today I’m happy to be listing some sober blogs and recovery resources that I support. Finding these resources can be the hope that someone in recovery needs. I am grateful that these are readily available these days, in the past they were hard to find.
Stepping into a life of recovery from alcoholism didn’t come easy for me. Generally speaking, I don’t believe it does for many of us. For some time before my last day I could be found googling things like “Sober Life”, “Life in Recovery” or even “how do I not drink”.
This was years ago…these days if you do google things such as those, you find many articles, blogs and social media influencers. Back in 2010 there wasn’t much to be found. Thankfully I did find some people who would end up being my tribe online.
People such as Ellie Strong, Lisa Ulbrich and Stephanie Wilder-Taylor wrote and shared about their own journey of recovery and I sat far away from them reading every word, building my own hope.
Through the years, I have maintained contact with these folks and in endless ways they have supported me. I have built a tribe of sober folks both in person and online who have helped form me along the way wether they know it or not.
Sober Road Trip
This week I took a BIG leap…I got in the car and drove almost 10 hours!! For me this is a giant accomplishment. In early sobriety I was involved in a major car accident which left me with physical injuries and a brain injury…and PTSD with driving. I have worked hard to recover from this accident and I’m sure you can imagine what a hurdle this driving was for me.
In the end I was ready to face this challenge because getting to the Boston area to meet Lisa Ulbrich, Amanda Finnerty and Jeff Berlot was just THAT important to me.
These are people in recovery whom I’ve grown close with online and I’m SO glad I made it here. This week has been filled with RECOVERY talk, meetings, great food and deeper connections. None of this would have been possible if I let my fears rule my world.
Today I want to pay it forward and share some AMAZING online recovery options…these are resources and blogs for anyone who is looking for hope. Sober life in recovery is beautiful and I hope that you find what I have.
