About My SobeREvolution
It started with questioning my drinking... And changed my whole life
Today, I am a different person
My problem with alcohol snuck up on me. I spent most of my young life watching my dad struggle with drinking, swearing it would never happen to me. Watching his struggle even inspired me to study addiction. I mistakenly thought this knowledge meant I would be safe. For many years, alcohol wasn't a problem. I was very aware of the danger, given my background. What I didn't realize is that I was always trying to fill some sort of void or quiet the noise in my mind. And for most of my life, I used food to fill that void and soothe that noise. As a result, I struggled with my weight and self-image all of my teen and young adult life. In my 30's I had weight loss surgery and when I could no longer use food to soothe and numb, I turned to alcohol. When I finally started to question my drinking, I felt I was faced with an impossible choice; admit I was powerless over alcohol, check into rehab and be labeled an alcoholic for the rest of my life OR keep going down the path of ruin I was headed down. Thankfully I found another way...

Because of what I learned from my experience and how dangerously close I was to a tragic ending, I feel a strong desire to help others that may be stuck in the same miserable place. I don't want anyone else to suffer; believing there is something wrong with them and leaving them feeling paralyzed. I don't want anyone else to wait until they've hit some arbitrary "rock bottom" before they seek help. We were sold a lie. We became addicted to an addictive substance; plain and simple. Ultimately, I want to help people realize their power and get back to the life they desire and deserve. I want to be part of the change that recognizes that anyone can become addicted to alcohol. It doesn't just affect a "broken" few. I don't want seeking help to mean being labeled or judged. I want it to be encouraged and admired! I want to help people see that cutting back or cutting out alcohol doesn't have to mean a boring life of deprivation. I really want to help people find true joy in their lives again. And, I believe it starts with taking a break from alcohol.
