Wondering what life would be like if you stop drinking alcohol ? Are you currently sober and looking for inspiration? Listen to stories of former drinkers who quit drinking, experienced significant life improvement, and are grateful for it . You will be inspired by their messages of hope! We are dedicated to spreading messages of hope through true stories of recovery. A sober life is possible if YOU truly want it.
My Guest for this episode is, Gabby, from www.recoveringartfully.com. She is an Autism Mom and she is Sober.
She shares about difficult personal experiences in active addiction including a suicide attempt, and her courageous work to change her program of recovery, with the help of another alcoholic. She shares her gratitudes in sobriety including an improved relationship with her husband, and becoming a more present mother to her son with Autism.
I love Gabby's story because it is an example of how when we, as parents, make positive progress through sobriety, our children make progress, too.
For Gabby, getting sober gave her a better and more manageable life. It also meant finding peace in recovery as an Autism Mom.
I can really identify with Gabby's story. I have 2 children with Autism. For me, getting sober meant no more blaming myself for my childrens' challenges.
In my experience, drinking alcohol was a coping mechanism for issues in my life. One of those issues was coping with my own insecurities and fears with being an Autism Mom. In recovery, I developed the tools that helped me parent with more confidence and selflessness, and I see the positive results in my children today!
If you are parent who is struggling, it is never too late to ask for help.

In this episode, I had the pleasure to speak with Julie from https://www.instagram.com/julie__ann__davidson/
Recording this episode was initially scary for her, but she found the courage to "punch fear in its face," and go for it!
You will be glad she knocked out fear because she will truly inspire you with her passion for life and the gratitude she has because she quit alcohol for good!
She shares how she pealed some layers to find the reasons why she drank, and then discovered the incredible freedom that comes from living a sober life!
She is so excited to share with you the FREEDOM in sobriety, and hopes that her story will help at least 1 person.
I have a feeling she will help many more.
