Getting sober can seem tricky, and the reason it seems that way is because we think we know it all, but we could not be farther from the truth. We figure that we’re adults and we’ve gotten this far, so we tend to rely on what we think we know to get us even further. […]
So, you’ve quit drinking and have now gone back to your old life. You wake up and do the same things you always do. Talk to the same people you always talk to. You watch the same shows you always watch. You eat the same diet and have the same thought about exercise that you’ve […]

A friend of mine was asking about the tagline on my site. “There’s way more going on in your head than there is in reality.” He thought it was kind of silly and didn’t really get what I meant even after I tried to explain it to him. So, instead of trying to find ways […]
