I chatted with Erin of @rawbeautytalks! I love her story and find it so relatable. There’s not a rock bottom. She didn’t HAVE to quit drinking alcohol. Her sobriety is about feeling good and taking care of her body and mind.

The Real Sober Moms with Jess The Sober Mom Life

Jess grew up in the alcohol-soaked culture of Wisconsin. It was everywhere – in her home, on the TV, and at every social event. She didn’t even know for a long time that it was an option to quit drinking.  When motherhood entered the picture in Jess’s mid-20s, drinking became her daily way to cope. She knew deep down that she had an issue, but she wasn’t ready to face it. Instead, she focused on balancing her life in every way… other than quitting alcohol.  The pandemic, which followed shortly after the birth of her third child, kicked things up a notch until Jess knew that she needed to make a change. Quitting was HARD for her. She experienced many stops and starts. But once she stopped shaming herself for the addiction that alcohol had created, she began to find her way forward.  Jess is now 10 months sober! She is so proud of the work she has done to get here. She wants you to know that sometimes this road is hard, and that’s okay! Just keep walking.  Jess recommends Alan Carr’s Stop Drinking Now: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=alan+carr+easy+way+to+quit Connect with Jess on Instagram: https://instagram.com/balanced_entrepreneur?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA== Announcing the Sober Mom Life Cafe!

one more thing…

A quote from the @sobermomlife that says, "You don't need liquid courage."

I know.

I know we’ve been taught that alcohol will make us more courageous, more social, less anxious, blah blah blah. And that might feel true – for the first 15 minutes or so.

But…what if you gave yourself a chance to see that you don’t need the fake courage? That you are courageous WITHOUT alcohol. That you can withstand the discomfort of social anxiety.

You won’t know until you try…

If this is your first sober holiday, head to The Sober Mom Life podcast for support! A few months ago, I shared tips for enjoying your first sober 4th of July, and it definitely applies to your first sober Labor Day, too…
