I used to be a boozy housewife guzzling wine like it was going out of fashion and now I'm quite the opposite - very happily sober! What a turnaround. My sobriety date is September 6, 2011. I set up this site in August, 2014 in conjunction with 2 NZ Govt Agencies .. and with their ongoing support we are fortunate that this site remains free and safe for all. I manage all the content here (writing blog posts, Sober Stories, mocktail recipes etc) and supervise our team of volunteer Community Moderators. You can get hold of me any time by notifying me in the feed (@mrs-d) or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm also active on Facebook (Mrs D Is Going Without), Twitter (@mrsdalcoholfree) and Instagram (@mrs_d_alcoholfree) and I have two books out about my recovery. 'Mrs D Is Going Without' tells the story of how I quit and 'Mrs D Is Going Within' tells the story of how I developed lasting tools to help me live sober long term. I also write a sober blog called Mrs D Is Going Without which you can find at (www.livingwithoutalcohol.blogspot.com). Great to have you here with us!
Hey gang, 10.30am and I’m still in bed! Drinking tea and watching tele. Lush hangover-free Sunday morning. About to get up and do some work transcribing interviews.. but will also make some fancy meatballs for tea and potter around doing washing and stuff. Love that my Sundays are no longer about guilt and feeling shit. I’ve just shared on FB and Twitter the link to a podcast I was interviewed for. BBC presenter Janey Lee Grace has quit drinking and now does all this fabulous sobreity work including this podcast – here’s the link to it on Apple if anyone is interested (it’s free) https://podcasts.apple.com/nz/podcast/23-with-lotta-dann-author-of-mrs-d-is-going-without/id1448715889?i=1000440241805 We talk about my drinking and recovery story but also the ‘wine mum’ culture and learning how to deal with emotions etc x
Ohh bliss! You enjoy that tea and morning tele. Hmm…hangover free Sunday mornings…..I pray I never ever forget what I left behind….and I shall be extra grateful for waking up sober tomorrow myself. Thanks for being here in spite of a very full real life of your own! You continue to be such a positive influence on my life and sobriety. oxxoxoxo
Oooo looks interesting but I’ve clicked on the link from Facebook and also the link above but it keeps saying tempoararily unavailable……@sheaney5 somehow you listened to it …..so I’m guessing it’s me?? Anyone else having problems with the link ?
Sounds like a great Sunday morning, I am soooo jealous – to have that freedom to lounge. Looking forward to reviewing the podcast. Thanks for the share and all you continue to do bring sobriety to the forefront of society, culture, etc.
