Sunday Sweet Edit

July 24, 2022

Hi, sweet friends! This Sunday Sweet Edit I’m sending Greetings from Wyoming! My oldest and I are on our first solo trip to visit my brother and his family. It’s been such a fun trip – I can’t wait to share more about it.

For now, here are a few things not to miss…

on the podcasts…

We take a look at Bennifer’s marriage and I teach Jay about the Madison Lacroy connection. We also chat with Mike Machanic about the Democrats chances in the Midterms. Oh, and a whole lot of 90’s nostalgia and laughs, too.

Emily Lynn Paulson was one of the first people I followed on Instagram when I stopped drinking in January 2020, and it was such a treat to be able to chat with her on The Sober Mom Life.

The Real Sober Moms with Erin W. The Sober Mom Life

Today’s Real Sober Mom, Erin, is here with a story that is so relatable.  In high school, alcohol gave Erin her first taste of ‘fitting in’. She leaned on it to socialize on the weekends throughout her teens and early 20s, and she never gave it much thought. Her drinking always seemed ‘normal’ when compared with those around her! Once she began having children, though, alcohol slowly started to seep into her weekday life, as wine became a ‘reward’ for making it through the intense days being a working mom.  In 2016, things took a turn. Erin experienced a devastating pregnancy loss at around 20 weeks. In the aftermath, therapy and community support did not feel like enough. She began to lean on alcohol to cope. The progression of her drinking was slow, but she eventually found herself often drinking a bottle a night, and something within her began to whisper… was she an alcoholic? But the term didn’t quite seem to fit.  Erin felt stuck in a pattern of questioning and moderation. Then, last fall, she found the Sober Mom Life community. This space helped her see a path forward! She has now been sober since January 1st, and in that time she has experienced so many big sober milestones. Erin is slated to run The Boston Marathon on her 100th day of sobriety, and she can’t wait to experience how good she will feel on that day!  Erin wants to share words of wisdom that a longtime sober friend told her:  The elevator stops at every floor, and you can get off at any floor.  My mocktail recipe book, ‘No Ethanol Needed’ is finally here!
