I am a wine drinker. WAS a wine drinker, but I decided that I needed to quit. I guess I’m one of those “top bottoms” that I’ve been seeing bandied about on other blogs. I never got arrested, never lost my job, never injured anyone or myself. But I’m tired of being a mother and wife that isn’t present. I have a four year old son and I would spend most nights drinking wine like it was my job, just to make it easier to deal with a boistrous and strong willed child. I’d drink to make things easier and smoother, but would wake up in the middle of the night riddled with guilt. I’d go to work and feel fuzzy all day (on a good day) or like shit all day long if the night before progressed past one bottle of wine.

Well guess what? I’m so tired of living that life. SO I STOPPED. And this blog will chronicle my journey. I hate to get too big for my britches, since I
am only four days in, but even if nobody reads this, I need to be accountable somehow.

  4. Hello,

    I thought the readers of your blog might be interested in my new book on giving up drinking for a while. It is called Between Drinks: Escape The Routine, Take Control and Join The Clear Thinkers, and the amazon link is http://www.amazon.com//dp/B00GFYH2H4.

    The book will be FREE for download on Amazon on 14 May 2014 only. No catches.

    You can read more about me and the book at http://www.betweendrinksblog.com. This includes testimonials from people who found it useful.

    Thanks for considering and I hope it helps a reader of your blog. If you would like to review the book please email me and I will send you a free copy

    Any questions please let me know – I’d enjoy hearing from you.

    Thanks again.

  5. Hi sober Jesse! Love your blog and was hoping to chat via email about things I’m struggling with and advice you may be able to give me. Let me know if there is a direct message system I can use – and keep the amazing writing and sober work going!

  6. I know I keep commenting but I am just so happy to have found this blog! I made one in 2012 that I wasn’t committed to but my god here is yours and it sounds like my life and my head. Thank you!

    • Hi there Jennybean! I’ve been quite neglectful with my blog, I guess it’s because time is such a previous commodity these days. But thank you for your comments. I’m off to catch up on your blog now:). Xo
