On Memorial Day weekends I’m always reminded of where I was, and how far I’ve come. Four years ago was my last alcohol-fueled Memorial Day Weekend. I used to wake at the crack of dawn, crack open a cold one, and save our spot at the pool. From sun up, till everyone else fell asleep, there was a drink pressed to my lips. I was always surrounded by family and people, but I was so alone. Lost in my own mind and depressed thinking, always hoping to finally blackout to turn it all off. The blackouts, became harder and harder to get to, as my body became accustomed to the gallons upon gallons of booze I would consume. Never wanting the party to end, but ironically wanting it all to end at the same time. It was absolutely insane. Im so grateful that my insanity finally spiraled into what would become my rock bottom. This year, is my third Memorial Day weekend in a row that I am so happy to enjoy and be present for. This weekend isn’t about BBQs and beer like I used to think, it’s about the ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us. Be grateful, be safe, and be present. I know I will. #sober #soberaf #1000hoursdry #soberasfuck #memorialdayweekend #grateful #soberblog #day865 #tothineownselfbetrue
Today marks 4 years sober. Last night I cried. It’s always a weird rush and jumble of emotions the night before my sober anniversary, mainly because I have to face the fact that at that very moment my story could have ended forever. But May 25th is always a beautiful day... a day of celebrating, a day of gratitude, a day of believing to my core that I was saved for a reason bigger and better than I ever knew.
These four years have turned my world upside down and then back up again over and over and over. There has been so much heartbreak, healing, loss, love, rediscovery, and growth. But I’d do it all over again if I knew what was waiting ahead of me.
I’m so proud of this journey, but the best part about it is what it’s given me the opportunity to do for others. Self-publishing Sober As F*** changed my life. And now it’s changing the lives of so many more people out there. It’s given me a platform to use what I went through for good. Its given me more than I ever could have hoped for. •
Thank you for being a part of my story. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for being my family. Thank you for being my friends. Thank you for allowing me to make my wildest dreams come true in my sobriety. #soberasfuck
A few positive reasons for kicking the booze right here 😊. Lovely to finally have time to get the boat out on the river for the first outing this year! I especially love it when the river is all getting set up for regatta with tents and white piling. Being a bank holiday previous years’ Friday nights would have been a big one caning it & spending most of the next morning in bed trying to sleep it off to feel better. This normally resulted in a late lunch & hair of the dog which would inevitably lead to more & then another big night as 'its only Saturday & I can do stuff tomorrow' which in turn leads to the same thing Sunday & 'well its bank holiday Monday so I'll do stuff then' resulting in big Sunday night because thats the done thing as normally its supposed to be a sensible/early night due to work Monday. But instead get trollied. Point is booze procrastinates everything for me. Also I save so much money I can now put it to use elsewhere & actually enjoy it. I bought this boat last year after giving up booze knowing I wanted to spend as much time on the river as possible as previous years were spent on the river banks or pubs drinking & watching other people have fun in boats. My time with my daughter is unbelievably quality as there is nothing standing in the way of me being 100% present and ready to do stuff. She wants to get on the river again this weekend and maybe really early one morning. Fab. Also, no rushing home for a drink so why not stay out late on the river instead. Yes, I could drink on the boat, which I did previous years on friends' boats but I always had to pee every 10 minutes. I could go on but you get the drift. Life is sweet alcohol free. Oh yeah and I haven’t vommed in over a year 🤮😊🧡🚤

To be a sober hell raiser these days 😇😈🤣🤟
150 days 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💗💗💗 I’ve always been a binge drinker and was a party girl for many years! I used alcohol to create confidence in social situations plus I had to keep up this pretence of being the crazy joker. Though I never really drank for enjoyment at home alone as I don’t really enjoy most as they taste foul. On 13/3/16 I was dealt the most horrible overwhelming stress and trauma where I couldn’t function and forget my own personal details. I lost myself entirely for a while. Drink became my friend and repeatedly played the same music much to my neighbours delight I’m sure 😂 once the high court case was out the way & a move of home. I was deluded and thought I was sorted!! Drink kept becoming a issue. Which resulted in benders & poor mental health! I cut down greatly in 2018 but realised sober life would save me from suicidal thoughts, anxiety and flashbacks so here we’re 5 months sober & proud 💗 recover loudly to stop others dying quietly 💗 #ptsdrecovery #anxiety #anxietyrelief #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #sober #soberlife #sobriety #soberasfuck #soberliving #sobermovement #alcoholfree #selflove #selflovejourney #selfcare #happiness #proud #chooselife #choosehappiness
This night will always be one that brings me to my knees with gratitude. 🙏🏻 #soberasfuck
I cannot express my feelings about this very well...but I'll attempt it.
Hi, my name is Abbey and I have an extremely unhealthy relationship with alcohol 👋
and THIS IS THE LONGEST I HAVE GONE WITHOUT IT IN A DECADE...*A DECADE!* Im so thankful I had had enough. I am so thankful I have pushed through the pain and all the uncomfortable situations to get here. I am so thankful I chose to do this for myself. I have never felt more in control or empowered in my entire life. No joke, I finally feel free 🦋
If I had known all my days would feel this great, you'd be looking at my 6 year post right now. But I understand it now, I understand me now, and I'm ready for the many sober days ahead 💚💚
Here comes the part where you get angry and say this isn’t how my story ends.
Where you become so fed up you draw the line in permanent ink.
Where you fight like Hell for what you want.
Where you don’t back down from what you believe in.
Where you let the pain of other people’s toxic choices hit you without compromising your standards.
Where you make those seemingly impossible changes you need to do so that when you scream, only LOVE comes out.
MAN, that’s hard, I tell ya.
So if you fail, fall, faceplant, break, cry and lose everything in the meantime while trying to reach that place in the story where you get what you want and need.... that’s OK.
Just hold on.
Now get up, Babes.
Fix your crown.
And rewrite that shit.
It will be so worth it.
