About Me (the Super Basics)

Hi. I’m Rachel.

I’m a 48-year-old woman who loved red wine way too much and decided I had to quit to find out what my life could really be. I’ve had the sneaking suspicion that I have the potential for so much more, and that drinking a bottle or two of wine every day has been getting in the way. Just a hunch.

I don’t have kids (except my amazing dog) or a husband, and I finally realized that my insidious bad boyfriend, Wine, was taking a lot more than he was giving. What does life look like when I don’t pour my feelings down my throat every day or night? When I can’t escape behind a really tall glass of red?

This blog is my way of sorting that out. Buckle up.

  1. I got sober when I was 47. More than 30 years of drinking under my belt. Day 1 for me was November 7, 2011. One dat at a time I just celebrated 4 years of consecutive days. I love life now. The magic has returned and gets better daily, one day at a time. Sobriety is worth it, keep it up!

  2. Wow. Thank you for sharing your journey. It has been very helpful reading through your entries. I’m like, “hey, I went through that, too!”. Nice to see that I’m not alone. Also, I think, if she can do it, why not me? Today will be my day one, again. 😎
    Oh, and I am 47 as well. Not sure if that means a darn thing, but cool coincidence.
    I tell myself, it’s poison. It doesn’t taste good anymore. I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of allowing my time and money and memories to be stolen.
    I can do this.
    Again, thanks for sharing. I’m encouraged.
    I can do this. 😎
