Introduction Hi! I am a 46 year old mom of two. I work a little less than part-time in New York City and spend the rest of the time being a homemaker and stay at home mom. While I may seem successful, happy and together on the outside (well, at least sometimes) I have not felt okay. While there are flashes of sunshine for sure with my sweet children and other blessings, I have felt overly numbed for years now, and have struggled with my self-esteem, my energy, and my self worth. I was too hungover, too much of the time. 6 months ago or so I started reading books like the Sober Diaries and the Naked Mind and felt immediately that they went straight to my heart. It was such a relief in some ways. Over the past few days, I've started stringing 3 or 4 sober days together at a time and noticed how much better I felt - how much better my mood was, how much clearer my head at work., how much more there I felt for my kids. This 30 day experiment sounds perfect for me. I am too scared to commit to forever (yet), but I really want a change, I really need a change. I am excited. Any and all comments welcome!
