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 email@example.com
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!
Quite a few of you are reporting losing posts, it is something that has always happened here, our techies have looked at it over and over. The Edit button is problematic – use carefully! Make sure you hit ‘save’ at the end of editing. Another issue might be if your browser window has sat open for a while, then you come back to try and write/publish an update unaware that you’ve been logged out ..? I’m not sure if that’s definitely a problem, maybe @danthedev can confirm. It’s always a good idea to copy your post before you hit pubish too – especially if it’s particularly long and significant. xx
