i have a choice

With a brain that says “I’d like to be sober, I don’t want to give up alcohol, I’d like to be sober, I don’t want to change anything about my life to help make this happen, oh I should probably quit now, why is this so hard when I don’t really drink very much, perhaps […]

Older Women – Is It Ever Too Late for Recovery?

I’ll say it – one of the most vilified demographics is the older woman. Especially if she dares to be sexual, current or aggressive in business. I recently read a blog by a 20 something who admonished women over the age of 40 for wearing hoop earrings. Show More Summary

Who Are You Without Your Drug of Choice?

Addiction is the ultimate identity thief. It doesn’t set up false bank accounts or hack your email – it steals your identity from within.

Haley’s a great example. She entered...

I’m Solitary Sober… What Kind of Sober are You?

I guess, if I were being honest, I’d have to say I am the kind of person who enjoys being alone in a remote cabin in the woods. I am writing from one now. If you met me, you would not think of me as some solitary, grizzly gal. I shave my legs, I carry on lively […] The post I’m Solitary Sober… What Kind of Sober are You? appeared first on Waking Up The Ghost.

The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling! (Things Happen, But It’s All Good…)

Winter FUN in Ontario’s Lake Country

When I was younger, I was outside almost all Winter long. We would spend days out there in the COLD, snowy Canadian Winters enjoying ourselves without feeling the cold.
