FROM BOOZE TO BLOOM: MY JOURNEY TO A HAPPY AND ALCOHOL-FREE LIFE

FROM BOOZE TO BLOOM: MY JOURNEY TO A HAPPY AND ALCOHOL-FREE LIFE

Having grown up amidst the vibrant ambiance of hotels, alcohol became an intrinsic part of my existence; envisioning life without it seemed inconceivable. Raised in a family deeply rooted in the hotel industry, my formative years were spent in these establishments, often finding myself amidst the chatter of patrons while tackling homework in the front bar. These spaces were more than the family business, they were my second home. Yet, as my forties unfolded, I came to a  realisation: the once comforting embrace of alcohol no longer aligned with my aspirations and the person I aimed to become. Driven by a quest for deeper purpose, I embarked on a journey towards sobriety several years ago.

Join me as I recount the transformation from booze to bloom, and how it empowered me to evolve into the woman, mother, and business owner I proudly embody today.

Educating Myself: 🤓

  • In my quest for a sober life, I immersed myself in stories, knowledge, and inspiration about living without alcohol. Learning about the possibilities and benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle helped me build the foundation for my journey.

My top book recommendations:

Annie Grace: This Naked Mind

Annie Grace: The Alcohol Experiment - 30 Days to take control.

Quit like a Women 

Using an App for Accountability:📲

  • Numbers became my motivator as I tracked my sober days through a dedicated app. Watching the count grow became a powerful incentive to stay on track. It was a tangible representation of my commitment and progress. There are many apps. you can choose, a free version is all you need. 

Becoming Someone I Loved: 🙌🏼

  • One of the most rewarding aspects of my sober journey was witnessing the positive changes in myself. I took pride in being a role model for my daughter.  Seeing the world through her eyes fueled my determination to continue on this path.

Finding Joy in Simplicity: 🌼

  • Sobriety opened my eyes to the beauty of simple pleasures. Early mornings, hikes, and the consistent routine I established became sources of genuine happiness. Running my business with a clear mind allowed me to manage stress and anxiety more effectively.

Liking Myself and Embracing Authenticity: 💗

  • Through sobriety, I discovered a profound appreciation for who I was becoming. Being present, understanding myself, and liking the person I saw in the mirror became transformative. I embraced authenticity and found a new sense of self-worth, I had truly longed for, for most of my life.

In swapping alcohol for juice, I not only transformed my lifestyle but also rediscovered the joy of simple pleasures and authenticity. My journey to sobriety allowed me to be a better mother, wife, business owner, and friend.

Today, I celebrate the empowered woman who emerged from the shadows of alcohol, cherishing the clarity, happiness, and self-love that comes with a life free from its influence.

Today is a great day to start.
