End of Term Update

It's the end of term this week in Scotland. School is well and truly out for summer because it's pouring of rain and the kids are bored already!

I've not blogged much of late for a variety of reasons. The main one being that I am in a period where sobriety is easy. It is second nature at the moment and I am reaping benefits from minimal effort. I'm enjoying the good effects, I'm benefiting from it making life easy and it is helping me to get everything done and dealt with, with minimal fuss. Yes, times like this are easy, and I have no desire to drink at all.

I've been out quite a few times in the last 2 weeks. With a lot of evenings out I'm pleased I can make it to all of them. There were only so many hangovers I could deal with in any given time period.
I had a business-type meeting with a friend last night in a pub from 8-9pm. I was so pleased that I was happy with my soda and lime and thought how awful it would be to be wanting a drink and not having one, or having a drink and wanting ten, despite having driven there!

Being sober is making life easy for me right now and is making me feel happy despite the rain!
I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

Hope you are finding sobriety fun too.

Until next time,


  1. That's awesome Rachel. I hope I get to that stage one day! It would be so nice for not drinking to be second nature and not having to think about it all the time!

  3. It is just a great feeling, isn't it? To no longer long for it is something I never would've dreamed happening. I'm so proud of us Rachel!
