Every three months, the Recovery Gals Art Exchange happens. Sondra and I started the exchange over three years ago and you can see a couple of hundred posts from prior exchanges here.

My last sip of alcohol was on Groundhog Day 2015. I wouldn’t know it at the time, but it would be the last time I would shake up an ice cold double Manhattan.

It would be the last time I would use alcohol to numb out my existence.For those of you have followed me for awhile, you might remember that I have posted about my sobriety milestones from the get-go. If you’re new to my website and blog, I used to post monthly essays on my sobriety milestone on the third ..read more
