Are you “Tired of Thinking About Drinking?” You’re not alone. My name is Belle, and I am sober. I originally created this blog to document my own journey to sobriety (the sucky parts and the glow-in-the-dark realizations). Along the way, I’ve gathered some friends, and now it’s so much more than just a blog. It’s a community gathering place for the exchange of ideas. What you’ll find here (hopefully!) is a new kind of sober resource, with a personal touch that you won’t find on other “resource” sites. If this is your first time visiting, I’ve made up a little baby roadmap for you, that might be helpful:

3 > Sober Jumpstart
I’ve created an audio coaching class, especially to help deal with the first bit of sobriety: how to pick a replacement drink, what to tell people (and when), how to deal with the idea of ‘forever’, how to deal with overwhelm, what does relapse mean. You can learn more here.
