Hi. My name is Jen.

I am here to document my quest for an authentic, sober existence. I have been to the edge, and I didn’t like it there much. My sobriety date is August 15, 2013.

Nice to meet you.

  1. Welcome Jen – to a new sober life and to the sober blogging community. There is a plethora of supportive folks out here, and there, and the joys of sobriety far outnumber the tough times that may come. It’s a wonderful journey. Blessing to you on your new path πŸ™‚


    • Thank you so, so much Paul. It is kinda overwhelming at times, but I am absolutely looking forward to the change. Drinking is boring! Peace. ~Jen

  2. Welcome Jen! You’re in the right place! Like Paul said, the online sober blogging community is a great resource. You’ve taken the first step in admitting you have a problem. Now, I just encourage you to have an open mind and a willingness to change. Sobriety is a gift!

    • Thank you so much! I am working hard to keep an open mind each and every day. I like the idea that sobriety is a gift- that is a great way of thinking about it. Thanks for reading and commenting! πŸ™‚

  3. I really appreciate your candor in this post. I’m approaching 100 days sober for the first time and I think it’s good to admit that sometimes you think about and even plan to have a beer…and that you will still be supported if you do. But it was almost like you caught yourself thinking, “im allowed a slip” then decided, nah, don’t wanna do that. For me some days I go back and forth a few hours before moving on. I’ll say, let’s try to eat or go relax first and if that doesn’t work then I can have a beer. Then usually I don’t need it

  5. checking for a new post everyday, not just on your blog but on everyone else’s. I LOVE reading them…and you’ve all inspired me to do the same. just started, but man I have a lot to say. check if out if you want, I’m still kind of lost in it all but maybe, I’ll get there eventually – J xo

  6. Jenn I hope you are okay. I have enjoyed reading your blog and it has helped give me insight into drinking. I have a loved one who is an alcoholic.

    Very best wishes to you,


    • Thanks Ann! I am doing really well and appreciate your kind words. Blogging hasn’t fit into my life well lately as I have gotten busier being happily sober, but I still read blogs and am so grateful and thankful for this community. xo

  7. I’m new to this blog.I try to stop drink alkohol all together.I’m not successful so far, but I made up my mind and will do anything possible to STOP!!
    Reading your stores helps a lot.
