Megan never felt like an addict. She could pause her drinking while pregnant or to train for a marathon… but a return to drinking was always her reward at the end of the tunnel.
But lately, drinking hasn’t felt so ‘rewarding’.
Megan is 15 days into a break from alcohol, and this time? It feels different. She doesn’t feel like she is punishing or depriving herself. On the contrary, she feels happier and confident that this could really be a start to her new sober life.

Speaker 1 (00:00):
I wish more people would listen to our podcast.
Speaker 2 (00:02):
I know. I feel like this is why we need to do an ad. So this is an ad for brand new information, a pop culture and political podcast.
Speaker 1 (00:10):
We’re a couple Gen Xers who talk about pop culture and political stuff on the brand new information pop culture and political podcast. Okay.
Speaker 2 (00:19):
But we’re not a couple we’re siblings. It sounded like you said we’re a couple <laugh>. That was so gross. No, we’re siblings. That’s my brother. I’m his sister. Listen to us wherever you get your podcasts.
Hi. Welcome to the Sober Mom Life podcast. I’m your host Suzanne of my kind of suite and the sober mom life on Instagram. If you are a mama who has questioned your relationship with alcohol at times, if you’re wondering if maybe it’s making motherhood harder, this is for you. I will be having candid, honest, funny conversations with other moms who have also thought, Hmm, maybe motherhood is better without alcohol. Is it possible? We’ll chat and we’ll talk about all things sobriety and how we’ve found freedom in sobriety. I don’t consider myself an alcoholic. You don’t have to either, and maybe life is brighter without alcohol. I hope you will join us on this journey and I’m so excited to get started.
Hello, happy Friday. We have another bonus episode for you today. We’re talking with Megan. All right, her story, I think, you know, these are all important stories and I really do love them all. And it’s funny because I’ve talked to so many sober moms now, but I come away with, with a new kind of perspective or bit of info every single time. I love Megan’s story because this is not her first try at sobriety, but she said it feels different this time because this time it’s not about deprivation and it’s not about depriving herself of alcohol. It doesn’t feel like punishment, and that is so important. I love that so much. I think so much of the time when people are trying to get sober, it does feel like they look at things through the lens of not being able to drink, and I can’t drink and I can’t drink normally.
Whatever that means. This is not that. And so how Megan is looking at it this time, I think is just, it’s different. And you can tell that she feels so much better about sobriety and she’s not looking at it as depriving herself of alcohol, and I love it so much. I know you guys will love this conversation. Also, just a reminder, all of these moms are in our Facebook group, so it’s the sober mom life on Facebook. Come and join us. There are posts all throughout the day, so if you need sober motivation tips, inspo questions, if you wanna vent all of it, it’s all there. All throughout the day, people are posting.

Speaker 3 (03:47):
Hi. So happy to be here.
Speaker 2 (03:49):
I’m so glad to have you. Okay, so tell us about yourself.
Speaker 3 (03:53):
So I am a mom in our late thirties. Two young boys. One almost 6 1 4, and they are wild, I’m sure, as you know. Yeah, I work a full time corporate America job. Um, husband is in law enforcement. So both working full time drinking really came very naturally to me. Um, I was always an athlete growing up, so obviously that was the Georgia of choice. Yes. Uh, started probably freshman year of high school, you know, a little shot of vodka here or there, and it was just great. It, uh, allowed me to let loose. I was always a little bit nervous. So eventually over the year and it became the way to socialize. It was the only way that I was able to not be so awkward and uncomfortable in situations, which has just perpetuated even more as I’ve gotten older. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, obviously I’ve didn’t drink while I was pregnant, so that was an adjustment. Um, my husband and I have always pretty much drank since the beginning of our relationship, so that was the beginning of the adjustment and just seen how our relationship would be during that time. Yeah, I’ve done some snippets of sobriety here and there. Training for a marathon, I’d go, you know, a month without drinking beforehand, but there was always a goal at the end of it. I knew there was an ending in sight and I was always looking forward to the end of that.
Speaker 2 (05:07):
Like that was the reward. Right?
Speaker 3 (05:10):
Oh, 100%. And when I got that reward, I don’t write it
Speaker 2 (05:14):
<laugh>. Yeah. Yeah.
Speaker 3 (05:16):
And then last year, I don’t even know what started it, but I just said enough and I spoke with my husband who says he’s supportive, but it’s an adjustment in a relationship. As I’ve said, after 12 years, this is what it’s always been. Yeah. And I went 77 days and then it was my, my brother was getting married, so there was a whole bunch of things and I said, I’ve got this. I could have one or two drinks at a batch front party and at the wedding, and I did mm-hmm. <affirmative>. So I was very proud of myself. But then that started the, the progression into the binge drinking on the weekends. Okay. I was not a daily drinker. I always work out. I kept my job, I made it to school events, so I always rationalized, I have this under control. And then I started waking up with the 4:00 AM cold sweats, the anxiety, the, you know, the hangovers that last three days, the, the guilt, the shame that no one knows that this is what I’m struggling with mentally mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And then a little over two weeks ago, I, uh, got back from a trip from London with my husband’s child free, so I’m sure you know, alcohol was
Speaker 2 (06:19):
Speaker 3 (06:19):
Yes. And then <laugh> that weekend we went out and I drank both days and I just woke up on Monday and I said, I can’t, I can’t do this anymore. I just feel like I’m mentally struggling, I am unhappy, I am better than this. I deserve more than this. And so that was 15 days ago and it just feels different this time around. I just, I have no desire to wake up and be hungover. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> just, I don’t wanna ever feel like I did that Monday, so only 15 days in. But I feel great and has like yours and obviously the quit lit and everything that’s available now is just so helpful. So thank you for what you are doing because it really so helpful.
Speaker 2 (07:00):
And there’s no, only in front of 15 days, you know, it is like I’ve, I talked about this on, on a recent episode of like, I totally understand like the counting days thing, how that can be motivating, but also it does, like when you say only 15 days, like that’s not, that’s not only like, that’s a huge thing when your past has been turning to alcohol on the weekends and to celebrate. And so that’s a big deal. 15 days.
Speaker 3 (07:29):
Thank you. Thank you. I feel, I feel great. So hopefully it continues.
Speaker 2 (07:33):
Yeah. And so you said 77 days the last time to Detroit and you felt great during the 77 days, or how was that?
Speaker 3 (07:42):
I did initially and then it kind of felt like I was punishing myself. I just knew I mentally wasn’t ready at the end of it. I was just, I’m just not mentally there. And while I think a trip to London and a a two day bend or on a weekend, it may not be quote unquote rock bottom. Yeah. But it was just the catalyst just for me to really, like, I do not have a handle on this and this is not the way that I need to be living my life. My kids deserve more, I deserve more. I’m not achieving all the goals that I feel like I should be. And it was just, it’s exhausting to try to moderate, it’s exhausting to set all these rules for yourself that I never follow through on. So if you just cut it out and
Speaker 2 (08:23):
Yeah. Like Joey said on full house, cut it out. Oh my God, that’s so corny.
Speaker 3 (08:28):
That’s right. <laugh>. Um, we’re showing our age.
Speaker 2 (08:30):
I know of like doing the thing. So I like your story a lot because I think it’s super relatable. I think the story of rock bottom quote unquote rock bottom, I think that is more rare, but that tends to be what’s highlighted. And so also this idea that you did moderate for a little bit, right? And like, it might have been like a little white knuckling it, but like you did, you were able to like have a couple of drinks at the bachelorette party or at the wedding. And then it kind of reminds me of me with Sugar <laugh>, like it’s, this was in Jeanette McCarty’s book. Her therapist said, don’t let us slip become a slide. And that’s what I always think about with these things where it’s like, yeah, you can moderate for a little bit because you, you can, that’s the willpower part of it, right. But then that kind of tricks us into thinking, oh, we’ve got control over this really highly addictive substance and you just don’t, and, and that’s not a weakness in you. That’s cuz the substance is really addictive and it’s everywhere.
Speaker 3 (09:35):
That’s right. And I think someone told me once normal drinkers don’t have to think about how much they’re drinking. They don’t have to go out of their way to try to moderate. Okay. Some people can just have one or two. And that’s, is
Speaker 2 (09:48):
That true? Okay. This is what I’m pushing up against now. I wanna hear your thoughts on this because like, I saw a sober influencer who I’m gonna have on here and I love everything she posts and everything. She was just being hard on herself for not being a quote unquote normal drinker. I just push up against that. Like, can you think of anyone in your life, not calling out names or naming names, but like, I don’t, and I’ve said this before, I think I can think of one person in my life who has not either taken a break from drinking, said, oh my God, I drank too much last night. Had had some sort of like where they did drink too much, where they did drink more than they wanted to, where they didn’t think, Ugh, maybe I need to stop this for a while, do a sober October. Like can you think of anyone?
Speaker 3 (10:35):
I think I do. Um, my, my coworkers now I know. Yeah. Um, my coworkers now, now that I work in, you know, corporate America, I grew up in restaurants, so everyone drank and then I worked in law firms and everyone drank. Yes. And now I work, um, in an office full of women actually. Yeah. And some of them don’t drink at all. Some of them don’t even think about drinking like their spouses don’t drink. And that’s just so foreign to me. Right. That was really my first foray being like, not everyone Right. Drinks like I
Speaker 2 (11:08):
Do <laugh>. Right. And exactly
Speaker 3 (11:09):
What I know does,
Speaker 2 (11:11):
But like the people who do drink, I just think it’s always this push and pull relationship with alcohol. Most of the time there are drinkers, they’ve questioned their relationship with alcohol, I’m gonna say the majority of times. Right.
Speaker 3 (11:26):
I feel most people I know have probably said the next morning, I am never drinking again. Never because they’ve overdone it. Of course. Yes, of course.
Speaker 2 (11:34):
Because of course they have. Right. Because that’s kind of like by design, that’s what alcohol does. Yeah. Okay. So I wanna get back to your story, but I, this is just something I’m like working out in my head right now about like a normal drinker. I just don’t know. I don’t know. There’s something there, I gotta workshop this, but I don’t know,
Speaker 3 (11:52):
There is something there. I I, you know, I feel the same way as you said the sober, uh, person you’re gonna bring on. You kind of do feel like, um, it’s a loss of power. Like why can’t I just have one or two drinks? My husband can have one or two. I mean, he can go and party like the best of them. Right. But he can have one drink and he’s like, all right, I’m good. Like I could never, like, what is the point of drinking if you are not getting drunk? Like,
Speaker 2 (12:13):
Why You’re like, if I can’t feel it, why would I even feel? Exactly. Yeah. Yeah.
Speaker 3 (12:17):
Like I know there’s something wrong with the way that I perceive myself while drinking, I think was my hitting point. So maybe that’s the issue.
Speaker 2 (12:27):
I can understand that. I wanna make sure. Yeah. Cuz when I hear normal, like why can’t I drink normally? Like other people, I, I hear a lot of shame in that for you, you know, for the person who’s saying it. And it’s like, well I I think that’s a grass is greener idea. And one thing that hits me all the time in these conversations is like people are saying, yeah, no one would know how much I was drinking or how much my drinking was affecting me. Like no one knew. And what that tells me is that we don’t know. We don’t know how much other people are drinking, how much, even if they’re not drinking a lot, quote unquote, how they’re drinking is affecting them and their mental health and if they’re struggling with it. So on the outside they might look like a normal drinker, but I think that we all, the majority of people who are drinking have this push and pull relationship with
Speaker 3 (13:25):
It. And that’s a great way of looking at it. Just as people didn’t know what was going on with me. I certainly don’t know what’s going on in someone else’s head either.
Speaker 2 (13:33):
Yeah. So it’s, it’s easy to put the shame on ourselves. Like, God, why can’t I be like so and so? And it’s like, well you don’t know what’s going on over there either. You know, like
Speaker 3 (13:44):
That’s that’s very fair. That’s right.
Speaker 2 (13:46):
Yeah. So you started to moderate and then the slip kind of became the slide, which of course right. That’s what happens. So how does this time feel different for you?
Speaker 3 (13:58):
I’m not viewing it, at least at this point in the process. I don’t view it as a punishment or I have to beat myself up because there’s something wrong with me. Yeah. You know, it’s nice to wake up every day at 6:00 AM and have a cup of coffee on a Monday morning specifically mm-hmm. <affirmative> before my kids wake up and I don’t have a headache and I’m not, you know, the, the dry mouth and the, these kids are annoying me because I’m hungover and I have to get them ready for school. And there’s just so much more to life than just waking up in the morning like that. Yeah. And I just think viewing it as an opportunity to start a new chapter in life as opposed to I guess mourning or punishing myself for the last 20 years. Mm. It’s like everything is just in the mindset on how you view something. So I’m gonna just try to ride this happy wave as long as I can. Yeah. And one of my fears now is it’s almost like I’m secretly sober <laugh>.
Speaker 2 (14:56):
Speaker 3 (14:56):
Because you know, to your point, like you say so many times it’s alcohol is just so ingrained in our culture. Yeah. And it’s almost like people view you as, oh did you, do you have a problem? Or
Speaker 2 (15:07):
Speaker 3 (15:08):
What’s, what, why would you stop drinking? Or what if they don’t wanna hang out with me or I don’t want them to feel a certain way about themselves, which is their own issue. I understand rationally. Right.
Speaker 2 (15:19):
But it plays into it. Yeah.
Speaker 3 (15:21):
Yeah. So I’m working through that. Even telling my husband, I can see he’s supportive but he’s questioning, well what does this mean for me? What if we go to a wedding? Am I allowed to drink? And it’s like,
Speaker 2 (15:31):
Right. So is your hu your husband still drinking? He can still, like, how is that going?
Speaker 3 (15:37):
I, I talked him through my mental process and why this is really important to me. But I think, you know, he certain me say it a few times over the years, I don’t think he’s convinced it’s long term, nor do I particularly think he wants it to be long term to be honest. Yeah. It’s such a drastic change in our relationship and what we’ve always done, especially with kids. You know, you have a very rare night out. We’d have dinner, a couple drinks, have a couple drinks at the bar afterwards and now it’s just a different dynamic. So I think there’s a little bit of fear in that on both sides. Yeah. But I certainly don’t wanna tell him you can’t drink when you’re out with your buddies or anything. But there is a little bit of resentment there that I’m trying to work through for sure.
Speaker 2 (16:16):
Yeah. I mean my biggest advice, I, I think back to when I was just a couple of weeks sober. Yeah. There are way more questions than answers. Right. It’s pretty much like just all questions. And so just knowing that right, like I didn’t have any, I still don’t have a lot of the answers, but I don’t think that you have to. So I think if you wait to have all those questions answered, you probably won’t start your sober journey, you know? Yeah. Because it does, so much is revealed in these, especially I think this first year of sobriety, so much stuff comes up. Yeah. I guess my biggest advice is just not to try to figure it all out now because you can’t And that’s really, that’s really hard. It’s really scary. And I totally can relate to the husband thing. My husband still drinks and Yeah, I think at first mine was similar to yours.
Like he was like, mm, okay, let’s see. Right. Let’s see how long this lasts. Like I’m, I’ve heard this before and then I kind of became like crazed about it. Like I was like, oh my God, did you know that alcohol does this and this and this? And he’s like, wait, really? You know, <laugh> like, he, like, he is just like, I was just not proselytizing like trying to convert him to sobriety. I was just really excited about the stuff I was learning. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and I wanted to share. And before I like came out as a sobriety influencer, he was my only audience. So like I could literally only just tell him, cuz I wasn’t like you, I wasn’t telling anybody else. Cuz what are you gonna do? Like make a post on Facebook like I am now sober, period. <laugh> the end.
Speaker 3 (18:04):
It might work, it might hold me, hold myself accountable actually if I did that. Um, yeah,
Speaker 2 (18:09):
You’ll know when it’s, when you feel ready to share and whatever you wanna share,
Speaker 3 (18:14):
It makes it more real to share. So yes. Yeah. It’s a process like everything else. But like I said, hearing your story and you know, I posted my story on the Facebook group that you started and just the positive reactions and so many women who just related to what I had to say, it’s just nice to know that there is a group of women, moms, people in general out there who share the same struggles and are working through the same thing. And we’re not alone in this. And it’s just super helpful. And I’m sure I speak for everyone when we say we’re just so grateful for what you and all the other sober influencers are doing for the community.
Speaker 2 (18:53):
Thank you. I mean, it just feels necessary. Like, it feels like, well of course like this is something that I’m doing it because when I first shared my story, the outreach and the, the responses were, I, I couldn’t keep up. And that’s just continued, which just shows me that like, this is so needed. Like so many women, especially moms are struggling with this and like, just like your story, it’s not the rock bottom. I didn’t lose everything. They just are sick of feeling horrible Monday mornings, you know? And I love the idea that this time around for you, it’s not about depriving yourself. And so that really takes the focus off alcohol. Like when you
Speaker 3 (19:40):
Think of oh, 100%,
Speaker 2 (19:41):
Right. Like before, sometimes that’s my issue with the sober October stuff. I like that it gets people thinking about life without alcohol, but generally they’re counting down to alcohol and they’re looking at their lives through a lens of not having alcohol instead of living their lives through a lens of like full freedom from alcohol and in sobriety.
Speaker 3 (20:03):
That’s right. Even we went out to dinner on Saturday with our kids and like for the first time I looked at the food menu, it wasn’t all about what martini am I going to get? I was like, I’m an appetizer. I’m gonna get a meal and then I’m gonna share the dessert with my kids. And it was like the first time I was like, oh, I’m actually eating a meal at a restaurant instead of just focusing on how many drinks I can have before I go to, you know, some Halloween fest with my children. Yeah. And I was, it was great. It was so much fun. And I was, I remember the whole night I didn’t black out or anything, you know, at a kid’s event. There’s a lot in that sentence, but
Speaker 2 (20:38):
No, but I, I think dude, especially around here, like parents drink while trick or treating like it’s a thing. Parents will add alcohol to any situation.
Speaker 3 (20:48):
Oh, I have done it for many years. <laugh>. Yeah.
Speaker 2 (20:50):
Speaker 3 (20:50):
First birthday parties, baptisms, you name it, there is alcohol there for sure.
Speaker 2 (20:56):
For sure. Yeah. That is amazing. And so I like to think about, like you said, you have 15 days. I like to think about rather than counting days, because I do think sometimes counting days if it empowers you, great. Like that’s amazing. You like to check off those days and like count those days up. But if it feels a little bit more punishing or just like, you’re just not feeling inspired, I like to think about counting the firsts instead mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And so like, what are some first like sober firsts that you’re excited to tick off
Speaker 3 (21:28):
O So I’m, well it’s not, wouldn’t be a first sober first birthday party I’ve been to. Yeah. Um, but it is, we used to live in, in the city and so it’s in the city and it’s at this restaurant that was always the party restaurant.
Speaker 2 (21:41):
Speaker 3 (21:41):
So I’m going there on Saturday with a bunch of big drinkers. Okay. And so it’ll be the first time that I’m around that group, non-pregnant, sober choosing to be sober. Yeah. So we’ll see. How are you excited? I’m not nervous, which is odd. Cause the last time around I was nervous and I was already, what am I gonna tell people? How am I gonna explain to people why I’m not drinking? They’re gonna think I’m pregnant, they’re gonna, you know. Yeah. The whole thing that you go through with the mental tor in your head. Yeah. And now I’m just excited to, to be there, to be present, to eat all the food at a party for once to, you know, I can drive home if there’s an emergency, I can help someone else who’s drinking. It’s just, I’m looking at it as an opportunity then as a punishment, which is, I’m looking forward to it.
Speaker 2 (22:26):
Oh, I’m so excited for you. That’s amazing. You know, I think the best thing about like going to a party while you’re sober, like you leave when you’re tired,
Speaker 3 (22:36):
Which please, I know
Speaker 2 (22:38):
<laugh>. Like, I was like, oh my God, I’m tired. And I was like, oh my God, I’m tired. Like,
Speaker 3 (22:42):
Speaker 2 (22:43):
Can know that I’m tired and that means I wanna sleep
Speaker 3 (22:46):
And That’s right.
Speaker 2 (22:47):
Speaker 3 (22:49):
That’s right. Or not stay longer than what my kids wanna stay because I wanna keep drinking and I’m just throwing a tablet in their face. Cause I wanna keep the party going when it, it really should end.
Speaker 2 (22:58):
Yeah. Oh, that’s amazing. I know that some people early on in their sobriety journey that would scare them. And I totally understand that. Like, if you’re not ready to do that, don’t do it. You don’t have to. You could say no to everything, but it’s interesting to see that you’re excited for this opportunity to like experience this sober. I think that’s amazing too. I still feel like that every, like, I like to go to places where people are drinking.
Speaker 3 (23:26):
Speaker 2 (23:27):
I do, I I said in a recent episode, I’m like, you know, it’s just so easy to romanticize alcohol when you’re not around it. Like, it’s so easy to like conjure these things in your head about what it would be and what it would feel like. There is nothing more kind of just, that inspires me more in my sobriety than being around a room full of people drinking.
Speaker 3 (23:50):
I will keep that in mind on Saturday when I’m around a bunch of drunk people and I’m just like, this used to be me. Oh my gosh. Like,
Speaker 2 (23:58):
And even like, you can just tell when you’re of clear mind, you can just tell the volume slowly starts going up pretty early on. Like, it doesn’t even take, it takes maybe one drink, maybe two. Like everyone gets louder and you’re like, okay, why are you talking? You know, why are you talking? So then the stories start repeating mm-hmm. <affirmative>, you’re like, oh, you already, you already said that. Okay. Like, we’re getting heightened mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And then like the makeup starts getting a little bit <laugh>. Like just the stuff that these people who walked in perfectly put together. It’s like you see them sort of melting and it’s like, oh, right.
Speaker 3 (24:34):
And it’s, that was me.
Speaker 2 (24:35):
Yeah. That was me. Like that was all of us. And it’s, it’s no judgment to them, but it’s just, yeah. It’s,
Speaker 3 (24:43):
It’s more affirmation that I don’t want to be like that anymore.
Speaker 2 (24:46):
It is. It’s like, oh, okay, I’ve done that and I know how that ends. Like I’ve, I’ve tried that. That’s right. And so now that’s right. We’re trying something else and something else is way better.
Speaker 3 (24:59):
I know I always see people on postings. I’m a year sober, I’m this much sober and I would always get so jealous and I’m just work your way to that. Yeah. And end goal instead of an end goal, I’m gonna get wasted at the end of the month. It’s an right end goal of I’m gonna make it 30 days, 60 days, whatever.
Speaker 2 (25:15):
Yeah. Whatever it needs to be motivates you. Yeah. Or I’m gonna, yeah. Like, I’m gonna go to this party where normally I would’ve gotten drunk or wasted. I’m gonna do it sober and I’m gonna come home comfy and cozy in my bed and wake up in the morning feeling great. And that in itself is a huge success in sobriety. And you get to do that like over and over and over again. That’s the, that’s right part. Yeah.
Speaker 3 (25:44):
Speaker 2 (25:45):
Uh, very excited. I’m so excited for you. Okay, one more question. What have you found is like your biggest go to in your sobriety toolbox so far? What helps you when you’re feeling anxious or down questioning everything.
Speaker 3 (26:01):
Probably listening to podcasts and quit lit a major thing. And this may be so shallow. I love looking at the before and after pictures. The before and after pictures of what people look like before and what they look like after. Yeah. And it’s so motivating and so inspiring and it’s just such a dramatic difference all the time. Yeah. And I find that super helpful
Speaker 2 (26:23):
For me. So that’s such a good one. I love that. I love the idea even of you doing your own before and after for yourself before mm-hmm. <affirmative> during, you know, and like comparing those pictures, even if it’s not like, you know, some people lose a tremendous amount of weight and it’s like a crazy before and after, but even if it’s not that you can see in the skin, in the eyes, in the smile. Like it’s pretty crazy how the differences in those before and after pictures. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.
Speaker 3 (26:52):
Yeah. They’re great and they’re super motivating. So if anyone needs a toolbox, just Google before and after alcohol.
