On October 18, 2020, I celebrated 5 years alcohol-free. Becoming AF(alcohol-free) was a lengthy process that started years before I actually put down the cocktail glass. I struggled for a long time to figure out how I could create a different kind of life. Now, I can tell you it was the best decision I have ever made.

Working full-time and raising children meant I didn’t have time left over for my projects – not without something else going by the wayside.
And then, in October 2015 I created my own superpower: Sober Girl.
