Approaching Mid-Point of Dry January

In case I was perceived as a little negative about dry January in my last post, here is a bit of motivation for those struggling as the half way point approaches.

This link is to an article I wrote for the Guardian a year ago. It is still as relevant this year and will be for ever more I suspect. That sobriety is more about the journey than the destination gives more than a nod to the fact that your achievement is now. Today. Today you are sober and free from alcohol. Live in that moment and enjoy the benefit. Avoid focussing on the end of the month before ticking your achievement box.

  1. Great article, so full of truths. I'm 8 months sober and real life is slowly beginning to reveal itself! X Mtts

  2. Your article is wonderful!
    It really is a journey, and one we must continue learning more about ourselves!

  3. I couldn't agree more. Its a journey towards a positive and healthy lifestyle, not a doom and gloom trapped rest of your life one. Keep smiling :)

  4. I remember hating being forced into a detox for 3 months. Having someone watching almost every move I made. I now know that it was just the beginning of a journey aimed at finding who I was. Thank you for posting this, made me feel nostalgic. :)


Go on, spill.
