Oh the terror of the unknown. Sometimes it's preferable not to even try because if you try and you fail, it might mean that's who you are. So many times I have refused to try because I didn't want to know the outcome. If I don't try I don't have to find out I can't do something. I was so limited and weighed down by disease that I didn't bother. I gave up. I devalued the goal. I stayed stuck. I told myself it was too hard, too dangerous, too much, too unrealistic, too far.

I made this Instagram January 15 of 2018. A little over a year ago. My initial goal was 100 days sober because I honestly didnt think I could go much longer than that without alcohol. I had no faith in myself and no confidence. I made it 6 months without a drop of alcohol. And in 1 year I drank a total of 6 times. That was in a 4 month span. In 3 days I'll be at 100 days sober. Completely alcohol free. But not free of the grip that alcohol has on me. Honestly, I know alcohol has no power over me. I know that my life is a million times better without alcohol. But my brain hasn't gotten out of the habit of thinking about it automatically everytime I'm stressed or anxious or feeling depressed. But I have total faith that it will in time. In the mean time, I am trying to build new habits. And while I do keep falling on my face, I am not giving into the lie that alcohol makes everything better. Because I know from personal experience that it doesnt.

For so long I've often thought that there's been some kind of mistake with my existence. I'm 99% sure I should have been born into another realm as a woodland fairy 🧚‍♂️ I am much more at home in nature with animals & plants, away from people. But here I am. A human woman called Hannah 🙋🏻‍♀️ And I am extremely blessed in my current reincarnation. But it's not without its challenges! And to cope with my various past traumas (& generally just being alive) I found alcohol when I was a teenager & held onto it for years like a life-raft. I believed I needed alcohol, not only to enjoy myself, but to cope & survive in this loud, scary world. I thought alcohol brought out 'the real me' who could stay out all night & interact with people... But it was actually killing me, isolating me & damaging my fragile mental health further. It prevented me from living my real life, as the real me. Recently I told my best friend that I am different now. I am not the crazy, 'funny' girl who dyes her hair blonde, drinks wine & dances around all night. The real me is an introverted book-worm with brown hair who talks to trees & flowers & who goes to bed early with a cup of herbal tea. She told me she's always loved the 'Hannah with brown hair who reads books & talks to trees & flowers'... 💕 It's funny how for years I used alcohol to try to cover her up. I'm excited to start living & enjoying my life properly as her, instead of killing myself trying to be someone else. And it turns out there are much healthier ways to cope with being human that do not involve drinking or smoking anything & poisoning myself. I'm grateful for the chance to start again as me...

300 Days NOT drunk.
Sobriety has been such a gift. 
A gift of healing, sanity, presence and knowing. 
Knowing what I am, what I need, what I want, what my heart says, what my head says, what my soul is.

There were days when I had no idea how I would make it this far.

One day at a time.
There's a peace in the freedom.

Love love love this. I remember every week I would be looking forward to the weekend so I wouldn't have to think or feel that thing that I was worrying about. I could stuff it down it all week and put on a smile and pretend like everything was alright. But, come the weekend, it was fair game. Because I could always blame it on the alcohol talking. So anything and everything came out on the weekends. Things I wish I didnt say. Actions I wish I never took. Then come Monday it all went back into its little box. See, that's the thing about worries, or bad vibes. They will always come out. If its bothering you its worth saying something about it. Letting it brew inside of you causing a war in your mind just leads to everything exploding. The worst part about everything exploding? There is no control. No take backs. No I'm sorry that will take it back. Not drinking gave me back a voice. But most importantly, it gave me back control of that voice.

I found this quote on @b.oakman Instagram and I absolutely love it. My family and I have been going through a season of change lately and are still going through a season change, and pair this with my own I am going through, it's been stressful to say the least. And I am not doing very well with it. It's been hard to say the least and I've been dealing with it by eating all my emotions. 😭😭 I havent been drinking but I feel like my relationship with food needs to change too. I decided to ditch keto and focus on not restricting myself as far as what food I am eating. I am being mindful about portion sizes and I feel like I am doing a smidge better but not where I want to be. Restriction leads to binging for me and it's a vicious cycle. Just venting. I'm making an active effort to change but still frustrated.

'I can't drink' is a vastly different statement than, 'I don't drink'. Which is just one reason we take offense at the frequent, though well-meaning question, "so you can't drink, then what do you do for fun?"

In reality, my list of "can't" has only grown shorter as my sobriety continues. Therefore, saying "I can't drink, " denotes a lack of self-control.

Journaling this morning and I love how sometimes you just get a spark and your words just come out of your pencil. I started writing about what sobriety has given me, the good and the bad, and I could have written more. The best thing sobriety has given me is my self-respect back. I am a work in progress and do still have confidence issues but at the end of the day I know that I did my best. And time with my family and kiddos is right up there. So far the worst thing sobriety has given me is my anxiety and emotions back. Both are so fickle and so hard to deal with. But I'm also working to get those under control too. If you decide to make a list I would love to see it or be tagged to see yours!

PART 2!!!!
Life is all about choices. But more importantly everything in your life can change by one simple thing. Changing your mindset. I hope that seeing this someone that has given up on themselves finds the strength to look within and bring out the best version of themselves!!!!!
Much love ❤️❤️ ⚡️BONES ⚡️

PLEASE WATCH!!!’ PT1.
To say this is uncomfortable for me to put out is an understatement. But something is telling me that I need to put this out there. 1 year ago today I was at the lowest point in my life. A year of good choices and a shitload of hard work has turned my life around 180 degrees. I hope that seeing this someone can see that maybe there is a way out of that deep hole they have dug themselves into.

“I will never feel this defeated again.” — ...
I uttered those words as I burn the very last cigarette I smoke, to the ground. 
Fire into ashes. 
That’s where I left you and all of me that belonged to you. 
A D M I T T I N G, is the first step and the staircase to the top looks infinite.

“Every transitions ends with a new beginning.” — I felt caged. 
Worst thing is, I enjoyed it there even though it was suffocating me.
Fought the hardest fight to release myself of my own imprisonment. 
I’m no longer in a cage,

A couple of silly things came to my attention over the past week.

I’ve heard about this first one a lot, and I saw it a bit as well.

Let’s say people, people who don’t comprehend Facebook, getting mad at ads. They comment, “Get this off my screen!!!” Ads target people all the time. How about not look at your feed then?

Not sure, but I find that ridiculous and hilarious at the same time.

The other one is I was told 2 or 3 times that Facebook is the devil’s.

No one should be on it.

It’s a crime.

Violates privacy. 
No one should be sharing what they do on there.

Ugh!

Just the devil’s platform right there.

Another laugh.

Cause you and I know that everything can be used for “good” or “bad.” But really it’s just people that don’t understand how things work.

Or they’re too afraid to give something a try.

If something’s not in their frame of mind, outside their box, and challenges their mindset… then voodoo!

But aren’t you sick and tired of repeating yourself?

Tired of the same ole causes and effects?

Burnt out on nothing ever changing for you?

Well, you could call it devilish… or you could just call it something that works.

Otherwise, get back at yelling at your Facebook ads!!! Channon “Be Sure & Use CAPS!” Bailey

One thing I have noticed about giving up drinking is that fears I thought I had gotten over have dropped back up. I used to be terrified of being alone. And I dont mean not being in a relationship. I just mean alone in the sense that there isnt someone in the next room. My husband worked overnight last night and my sister had my kids. I could not sleep for the life of me. I swore I heard someone a few times even tho there was no one there. I had every light in my house on and I was worried something bad was going to happen even tho I knew it wasnt. My husband is working overnight again and my kiddos are home asleep in their beds and my brother is here too and I feel so much more at ease. I still dont want to be in the dark but I feel so much more at ease. It's funny how we can come to depend on someone to be a comfort blanket for us. Thank God my husband works all days next week. .

This totally looks like a #weightlossinspo picture, and even tho there is weightloss, I prefer it to be a #sobrietyinspiration picture. .
.
.

Physically my face has cleared up so much from acne, my smile actually reaches my eyes, and I am more okay with just being me. My courage has made a come back and my #bodyconfidence is slowing coming back to me. I can think clearly through something and make better decisions. And feelings. Oh feelings. Boy has those come back stronger than ever. And sometimes those are the hardest things to deal with when you give up a coping mechanism. But I'm learning and adapting. And making mistakes and learning from them. Rediscovering that I am worth more that I could every fricking imagine and I am worthy of any effing thing I want in this life has been truly ground breaking. I just hope that others who choose to  he sober or alcohol free or whatever your vice is gets to feel this way. Everyone deserves to feel worthy.

The difference between reality and fantasy. Sometimes reality can be so beautiful that it rivals a fantasy, but most of the time reality is something we all want to escape from. I think how closely your reality matches your fantasy determines your level of happiness. Can you imagine being miserable in a place like this? 
I actually can, but that's cause my disease called alcoholism could make that happen. Make me stop looking at the beauty around me and being grateful for all that I have.
Alcoholism can quickly get me fixated on when the next booze run will be, what alcohol I have, what else I want.....get me to neglect everything beautiful and valuable in my life until it's gone. 
This is what happens to children, friends and family when alcohol gets a hold of me. It wouldn't matter where I was, I'd be in prison. In a prison of my own making that would never cease to exist until the part of me that created it does.

What you're looking at here are sober treats. 
I used to treat myself with alcohol. It was my reward for getting through a long day (really, ANY day). It was my way of patting myself on the back and saying, "you did it, Laura!" Now really, alcohol was no reward at all. It was a liar, a thief, a shroud, and a cage, but I hadn't woken up to that fact yet. 
Now that I know better, I do better. I DO still need a reward for doing hard stuff. Anyone who tells me that the satisfaction of a job well done IS its own reward can...well, they can go be satisfied with themselves somewhere else. #blesstheirhearts 
So every now and again, I get a sober treat. And I do it with purpose and intention. This fancy tea is this week's sober treat. It's my "well done, you!!" to myself. It's my "you're doing a hard thing and you rock" pat on the back. 
I think trying to do any brave and hard life-change deserves treats. I think getting through a day deserves one, sometimes. And I think it's folly to take away a coping mechanism that is destructive, and leave only a void in its place. Much better to fill it with something positive on purpose, than something else negative on accident, you feel me?

What do you treat yourself with? Is it adding value to your life, or taking away? If you're currently saying "no" to something in your life (alcohol, sugar, a bad relationship, etc) what can you say "yes" to as a reward to yourself for a job well done?

“Tell me something boy
Aren’t you tired of tryin’ to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore? 
I’m falling 
In all the good times 
I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself...”

— I didn’t only connect to this movie because I’m a romantic. #AStarIsBorn had a soul that spoke to mine. #BradleyCooper has been sober for over a decade and when I watched the film, I saw in his eyes all the struggle he had to fight through, such an amazing portrayal as an actor. It was the same eyes displayed by all the people I’ve met in AA, people in recovery. I’m one of those people. I’m proud to be one of those people. I no longer attend AA meetings, but the program’s teachings and principles are forever embedded in me. @bingeongigi

“Lovers in the night, poets tryna write 
We don’t know how to rhyme but damn we try
But all I really know, you’re where I wanna go
The part of me that’s you will never die...”
#ALWAYSREMEMBERUSTHISWAY🐚🌊
— The ocean is not only my happy place, it’s my sacred place. When I dive in, I find a comforting spot where my feet no longer touches the sand beneath me and talk to God. It wasn’t always this way, but there’s something about feeling so small in the middle of the ocean where I find myself truly connected. I truly believe that being in touch with God, is being in touch with yourself. As much as we highlight all the demons that hinders us from achieving our full potential and blocks us from our true destiny. Isn’t it only right to take a break and speak to our inner Gods and Goddesses? @bingeongigi

You were assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.

I love this quote because it resonates with me so much.

Just 3 short years ago I was a heavy drinker and had been for 10+ years. After 100s attempts of trying to quit and every method under the sun to help me stop I pretty much came to terms with the fact that my rock bottom was dealth and to be honest,  I welcomed the idea.
After a few failed attempts to make that rock bottom come sooner than later it was obvious that God had a plan for me and my life and He wasnt going to let me get out of it that easy!! Flashforward to today and guess what? Life is hard. But Oh. My. Gosh the view is more incredibly beautiful than I could have ever imagined!!! Whatever that mountain looks like right now in your life, just hold tight to God's hand and take it one step at a time, together.
You've got this!!

Day 3 and the king of wands
I see this card every time in my early recovery!
It definitely represents my father, I believe he's the one to help if I'm willing to open up to him
It is also telling me to fit in a spiritual practice every day which I need to do! I love connecting with this part of myself but rarely seem to at the moment. I'd love to develop and tune in to myself and become more psychic as well as mediumship work

Alot of people misunderstand when I say how important honesty is, but people in recovery know what I mean. If we hadn't been able to be completely honest about who was doing this to us it would still be happening. If it was still other people's fault or the universe's fault our lives we're out of control, they'd still be out of control. ...
I'm absolutely shocked how much my life has changed in a little over 5 months. My family trust me again, can rely on me. My friends respect me again, even if the old ones would still prefer to do that from a safe distance. I have new friends who've never known the insanity that stems from my drinking. My work is more enjoyable, my health has improved, my skin's better, my mood is stable. Oh god! So much! AND now I have met someone so perfect for me, I have the first sober relationship I have ever had and I don't know if it's because of that or what, but it's already by far the best relationship I have ever had. ...
If it's this incredible after 5 months, what will it be like after 5 years?! In my mind, I know the answer. I can see it. And I am not terrified anymore, i'm excited. I finally got out of my own way ❤️

And when I cant sleep I clean, write, do some learning, or simply cruise Instagram. I have done all of those things tonight. I cleaned all day, went to the movies, shopped, and came home and cleaned a bunch more. I hopped onto some modules from my coach and am going to make myself lie down and attempt to sleep. .

I'm still stuck in that habit of being up at this time every Saturday because of old partying. Still working on breaking this one.

Good middle-of-the-night to ya! 😉
Uni assignment due in 17 hours beckons me. I don't want to miss out on things I have planned for myself today so I guess I should working on it now huh?
I have been weighed down as a carer and mother this year so far. Being a student as well hasn't been easy at all. Why do we take on so much? I know for me I like to feel I'm maximising every year, that I'm squeezing the MOST I can out of every moment. Possibly this is compensation because of all the time I wasted being drunk 🤷 I don't know.
I know I push myself. I expect alot out of myself. But I don't despise myself anymore. I'm proud of my effort. I even let someone HELP me with this submission - as I wasn't going to get it done in time otherwise.

One of the ways I coach women to their success in sobriety is by helping them identify their small wins. Some times we are looking for a big ole production of sorts to take place before we celebrate. *****
No baby, Listen::
•
•
✨The win is responding to something differently than you would have in the past or not responding at all. •
•
✨The win is in making a good sound decision for the first time in a while. •
•
✨The win is in saying things aloud that you’ve never said before even if your voice trembles. •
•
✨The win is in being 3 days sober when you’re used to being black out drunk all week long. •
•
✨The win is in forcing yourself to get out of bed to experience a little sunshine when sleep has been your go to in order to escape the pain of your reality. •
•
✨The win is when you take a look into the mirrors that you’ve been avoiding to finally experience the beautiful reflection of you. •
•
✨The win is in the very moment that you realize that you are the solution and that no one is coming to rescue you. •

I’ve been successful in sobriety and healing by learning to give the little things the credit they deserve. It’s my hearts desire to help you do it too ! 😘

Dont keep doing something just because you arent sure how to change. Or what that change will bring. Just do something different. And maybe itll be hard. And maybe it wont. You wont ever know unless you try. But please remember, anything worth having doesnt come easy.

For most addicts, it’s nearly impossible to recover from addiction without help. Addiction is a selfish disease. It changes the brain circuit and challenges self-control and inhibits the ability to resist impulse uses.

I was going through old photos looking for pictures of myself drunk (and wound up looking for pictures of myself sober). This photo was taken in Tasmania in 2010. I had travelled there for a martial arts tournament and I was pretty much smashed from 10 minutes into the plane flight until I returned home a week later skulling Wild Turkey American Honey from the bottle. I missed the bus home from the airport and ended up on a train with my suitcase and then two connecting buses. The moment in this photo was the best thing that happened and it only happened because I'd gone into the ocean to pee 🤦

#you #matter - genauso ist es, aber letztendlich musst Du Dir in Suchtfragen irgendwann selbst ‘mattern’. Du musst selbst erkennen, dass die #sucht ein eher schlechter Begleiter ist, obwohl sie Dir wohl in manchen #crystal -Momenten verzerrte Konfetti - Situationen vorgaukelt.

Heute gibt es bei #herzsuchtfluss mal wieder ein #interview auf die #augen.
Es geht um den Einstieg und Einstiegsdrogen, Abstürze und das ein Suchti manchmal auch erst alles verlieren muss bevor er begreift was Phase ist.

5 month milestone 🍀
I put this up earlier then took it down after some comments. I spoke to some people from AA at my home group about comments and messages I got on here saying it was the wrong thing to do and in summary my opinion is this:
..
AA is a fellowship of people who are actively participating in treating their alcoholism with the 12 steps. I am responsible to protect their identities and not reveal who I know or what they say. BUT my token is mine to deal with as I so choose. If I wanted to wear it as a necklace or keychain I could. If I wanted to hold it out to show to every person I meet on the street I could. It's mine. It represents my hard work, commitment and achievement.
..
I do notice not alot of people choose to share theirs here. When they share so much else, of course I wondered why... But that's not my business.
..
Thanks for the support from others. It feels so much better than drunk ever did. 5 months sober is an absolute miracle in my life. I have never had this before in 23 years outside of an institution. Wouldn't have believed it was possible before ❤️ #sobrietymovement #soberaf #af #sober #sobermilestones #sobersunday #5monthssober #soberrevolution #soberaftoday #sobertoday #skyisthelimit #soberjourney #soberfeelsgood #soberisreal #sober2019

I saw this quote today on Pinterest and it really jumped out at me. This could pertain to so many situations but for me it hit me right in the feels for my weight loss and my sobriety. These two things go hand in hand with mindset and it is something I have been working on for such a long time. The correct mindset is so valuable in all aspects of life. I feel like I'm gaining lots of ground on my sobriety mindset because I know how good it feels to be sober. I know how much my mind has cleared not drinking every weekend. But a better mindset in all aspects of my life is something I've needed to work on for a long time. I've had some success with this in areas like confidence and my depression but once I felt comfortable I stopped working on myself. And have been avoiding it ever since for some reason. So, #2019goal is a healthier mindset. .

ALL of my past relationships were heavily centered around alcohol and/or drugs. If those things were taken out of the mix, I would have had next to nothing in common with any of them. 
Talk about destruction just waiting to unfold! 99% of my problems in my relationships (and in life in general) were directly tied to alcohol/drugs. 
Think about it: Most people will only cheat when they're too inebriated to know better, and most people will only say or do hateful/hurtful things when they're under an influence of some kind. 
I feel so sorry for the people in relationships that feel they have to go out and spend EVERY.SINGLE.WEEKEND. at the bar or doing something else that involves social drinking. It's as though they've rendered themselves incapable of simply enjoying time at home and exploring other hobbies with their partners.

I can only imagine how HEALTHY and beautiful a relationship could be without alcohol/drugs!
Now that I no longer drink, I have no desire to ever be with anyone that drinks since it causes nothing but problems. On top of that, it's nothing but a waster of money, time, energy...and is sooo unhealthy. ***Yes, the thought of actually dating and getting to know someone without using alcohol as a crutch TERRIFIES me, but only because I've never done it before. I'm not going back to my old ways though so I guess I will just have to figure it out! (I'm already too picky, and now I'm even pickier on account of my recent sobriety; thank goodness I am extremely content with my peaceful single life!) #day49ofsobriety #sobrietyisthenewdrunk #unhealthyrelationships #healthyrelationships #drunkandhighhalfmylife #makegoodchoices #soberrelationships #soberrelationship #soberdating #byebyealcohol #sobergirl #sobrietymovement

ALL of my past relationships were heavily centered around alcohol and/or drugs. If those things were taken out of the mix, I would have had next to nothing in common with any of them. Talk about destruction just waiting to unfold! 99% of my problems in my relationships (and in life in general) were directly tied to alcohol/drugs. Think about it: Most people will only cheat when they're too inebriated to know better, and most people will only say or do hateful/hurtful things when they're under an influence of some kind. I feel so sorry for the people in relationships that feel they have to go out and spend EVERY.SINGLE.WEEKEND. at the bar or doing something else that involves social drinking. It's as though they've rendered themselves incapable of simply enjoying time at home and exploring other hobbies with their partners. I can only imagine how HEALTHY and beautiful a relationship could be without alcohol/drugs!

Transitioning from substance abuse to a WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE aren’t just cute words to me. It’s what I’ve committed my life to. I’m obsessed with healing, constantly testing my mental toughness and most of all
E V O L V I N G! •

If I don’t do anything else with this little life of mine I will continue to show women that even when life knocks you down and you lose a little spark...You always have the choice of rising as the WHOLE DAMN FIRE! •

I have been telling myself lately that this is temporary. What do you want to feel when it's all over? Regret? Or do you want to be proud of yourself?

This is how sobriety feels. Like you're super excited because you know you're taking a huge step towards this amazing life but you have to wait on the starting line forever. Things can't happen fast enough. .
.
.
Maybe its learning to trust yourself again. Or maybe its waiting for trust from others that may never come. Or maybe it's as simple as waiting for those cravings to go away. And maybe they will. For a time. But there will be a point where you reach temptation.  And you have a decision to make. Are you going to give into those cravings and start all over? Or are you going to draw strength from within or those around you and push past it? .
.
.
I know for me I'm so anxious to get over the starting line. I'm anxious to reach the point where I can run. But Saturday night and the craving showed me that I have some work to do. I didnt cave but boy did I feel like it. I've decided that I'm just not there yet. I am not ready to be around others who drink and drink excessively. It's all too overwhelming and consuming. You can't move forward if you are constantly looking back on the past. It makes me think of the phrase "look back but dont stare" that I heard on the @recoveryrocksnyc from @girlwalksout and I love it. I'm thinking I may need to put it up somewhere so I can be reminded.

It's been such a long week. -Me on Monday. 
I'm feeling one day behind for some reason. Today felt like Sunday all day long. Mentally and emotionally exhausted today. I have so many thoughts going through my head about this past weekend and how proud I am of myself for not drinking even though I felt the temptation and really really wanted to. But I held strong. And didnt. .

I had this idea for something that I thought would not only be therapeutic but also kind of fun. And while I was figuring out what I want to say it was eye opening. So the idea is to do a comparison of who you thought you were drinking and why you liked them and who you have become, or are becoming, on your #soberjourney. Here's mine.

The girl on the left appeared to be so confident. She could talk to anyone about anything and be comfortable in the most crowded rooms. She thrived on being around people and she could make friends with anyone. But she had a secret. She wasn't always this person. She had to have a hefty dose of liquid courage. Her friends never knew her as anything different because she was rarely sober when she around anyone else besides her immediate family. Every weekend she was this super girl who seemed to be loved by everyone. Everyone but herself. Secretly, she despised who she was. Inside she was insecure and unsure about every decision she made about her life. When she wasn't with her friends and drinking she was almost like a shell of herself. She didnt know who she was. .

The girl on the right? She's still just as unsure as the girl on the left was about almost every decision she makes about her life. Except now, shes not drowning those fears in liquid courage. Shes trying to bring those fears out, embrace them, and find courage within herself to be that carefree girl that she once was without the alcohol. And that has got to be the most terrifying yet rewarding journey she has ever foregone.
