When I created a free Wordpress blog in January 2014 I had no idea how much it would change my life. I did it for me. I had been through so much in life and putting pain to (virtual) paper felt therapeutic. I didn’t know who would read it and that it would resonate with so many people. I had absolutely no idea that sobriety would pave the way for my career. 🌷 — Sobriety has given me every good thing in my life and here I am again in awe of how the universe works! I’ve been struggling over the last two years to figure out what was the best career path for me. Ideally I wanted to make money doing what I love - helping people get sober, social media, marketing, and changing the world. That’s when I saw a job opportunity posted by a friend that seemed like it would be a good fit and on a whim, applied. 💛 — When I got sober these types of organizations and jobs did not exist. This experience (and my entire career path) is a testament to the breakdown of addiction stigma and the evolving landscape of the sober community. I’m grateful to announce that I am now Head of Marketing for @thisnakedmind and I’m excited to share this important vision of changing the world with Annie and my new co-workers! I can’t wait to see where it all takes us. 😁 — Read more in my latest blog Sobriety as a Career Path. Link in my bio! ☝🏼💥 #thisnakedmind #giftsofsobriety
First step in pursuing my paramedic degree. 🙌 #soberliving #paramedic
I’ve been feeling a bit off kilter the past few days. There’s no particular reason as to why, but I wanted to use that feeling though to create something positive to share with others. * Feeling not quite right is something I grew quite used to. Ever since I started medication for anxiety however, my sense of self has massively improved. It’s been quite a while since I’ve felt this though and I feel a bit unsure on what to do about it. * I think 90% of it comes from feeling tired and I probably just need a solid 8 hours sleep and I’ll be back where I’m usually at. As well as that however, I’m going to adopt the above strategies too. * I’ve done my gentle exercise for the day, and I’m about to write about it before I go buy some chocolate. * If you’re feeling a bit off balance I hope this helps and you can use something from it, but also just remember it’s OK to have days like this and that you’re not alone.
Self care is a great way to experience and express gratitude to yourself for the journey of recovery. 🙏 Set some goals for yourself and realize you can attain a lot of what you desire in recovery. Don’t put pressure on yourself to the point you feel disappointed when it doesn’t work out as planned. Mindset is all about setting out to obtain what you want in life and recognizing what’s possible for you. ✨ Our Wellness Wednesday tip? Take time to rest, relax, and not worry about taking care of others. Your recovery comes first, so make time for it to happen! #OceanfrontRecovery . . . . . . . . . . #soberliving #recoverycenter #rehab #rehabclinic #ca #drugrehab #alcoholrehab #sober #socal #southerncalifornia #lagunabeach #california #westcoast #recoveryjourney #orangecounty #psychiatrist #therapy #therapist #ocean #ocps #soberlife #confidence #startnow #getstarted #beinspired #motivationalquote #powerful #positivity #goodvibesonly
As you think about your future, let yourself believe that anything is possible. And, as you move forward, keep yourself open to things you never imagined. We may think we know what we’ll want, but we can’t know for certain where our lives will take us, or what we’ll decide to do in the future. We often wind up surprising ourselves. Think back 20 years. Has your life gone exactly as you imagined it would? 20 years ago, if someone had bet me $10 million that I would wind up living in the suburbs, down the Jersey shore, leaving corporate America to become a personal trainer & life coach, and adopt & love 2 dogs, I would have taken the bet—without thinking twice! I would have thought it was a totally safe bet because I wouldn't have imagined that ANY of those things would happen. But, they ALL did. And, I'm so glad. What great unimaginable things have happened for you already? What unimaginable things await you? . . . . #lifecoach #liveyourbestlife #lifecoachforwomen #mindset #mindsetcoach #endlesspossibilities #personaldevelopment #bettereveryday #rescuedogsofinstagram #happiness #soberwomen #personaltrainer #anythingispossible #adoptdontshop #cutedogs #motivation #soberliving #positivity #loveyourlife #thefutureisbright #possibilities

Now seeking funds for post-production @thecreativehigh from director @adrianamarchione is a documentary feature film that illustrates the transformative nature of recovery through artistic expression, and how artist subjects re-create their lives in order to live free of addiction. Bringing the viewer into the worlds of hip-hop, drag performance, punk music, and featuring artists who create dance, theater and visual art, The Creative High demonstrates the tension that exists between the altered states of creativity and addictive behavior. #crowdfunding #fiscallysponsored #documentaryfilm . . . . . #thecreativehighfilm #thecreativehigh #artheals #womeninfilm #femalefilmmakers #documentary #nonprofit #filmfunding #supportindiefilm #thesobrietycollective #soberlife #soberliving #indiefilmmaking #femaledirector

I need to read my picture post over and over today. I don't know what's going on. Like I said in my last post, I have had other times when I said I was going to quit drinking, but I never felt like this. I think because my brain, my little addict voice, knows it's different this time, this time it's for real, that it's just screaming anxiety at me. Before I went to bed last night, I received a DM congratulating me and asking me what my recovery plan is. I almost threw up. Recovery plan? I was just going to stop drinking, tell my family that I've stopped and get inspiration from Instagram. But when I read that message, i realized "shit, i need a recovery plan". It's always the little voice of denial "You're not that bad. You don't get drunk everyday, you can just do this cold Turkey, no need for actual help." So here I am, at work, feeling so excited but scared out of my mind. Looking up local AA meetings, looking up books on recovery, wondering if I'm going to go through actual physical withdrawal. I would love to hear about everyone's first few weeks sober, about what plans they had, about what worked. #soberliving #daytwo #soberaf #alcoholrecovery #wedorecover
My sober journey began back when training to climb this mountain at the end of last year. I wanted to give myself the best chance possible of getting to the top, and I figured that cutting down on the booze for a while would no doubt help. Then came Christmas (read: whole of December) and however well meaning my attempts to “cut back”, it just didn’t happen. Drastic times called for drastic - last minute - measures, and so came the commitment to give up alcohol for 100 days. My hike up Kilimanjaro would happen within those first 100 days, and as silly as it seems to me now, my thoughts were plagued by a fixation on not being able to celebrate the achievement with an ice cold beer at the end. I genuinely feared that I would somehow diminish the experience by abstaining from that celebratory tipple and forever regret it (yeah, I know... 🤦🏼‍♀️). The hike, which took place over 6 days and 5 nights, was without doubt the hardest thing I’ve ever done, both mentally and physically. The happy-smiley photos I took at the summit (many of which I don’t remember taking given the heady mix of altitude and exhaustion) do not portray the exhaustion, sleep deprivation or altitude sickness that had come before. What the experience did teach me, however, is that my body is capable of amazing things, and I had massively taken her for granted over the years. When I did arrive back at our lodge on the final day of the trek, the last thing I wanted to do was “reward” myself with alcohol (although I did happily polish off half a chicken and fries). I am happy to report that the full-blown love affair between me and my Bod continues to flourish post-Kilimanjaro. Turns out, she performs far better when I’m not poisoning her on a weekly basis. Now the only thing to decide is where we go on our next adventure... #soberadventures #soberlifestyle #soberliving #soberhiker #soberhiking #sober #sobercurious #soberaf #soberwomen #soberwalking #hiking #hikingadventures #hikingkilimanjaro #kilimanjaro #uhurupeak #mtkilimanjaro #tanzania #travel #newadventures #health #wellbeing #wellness #mybodyrocks #2019goals #wherewillwegonext

In order to have the best chance of success at addiction recovery, the body must be rid of the drug in order to eliminate the physical dependency. That is why successful addiction recovery begins with detox. Our medically supervised detoxification procedure is designed to get our patients safely through withdrawal in the most comfortable manner possible.
