Former oenophile walks out of a bar…

Hey, I'm Sarah. I'm a native Kansas Citian who used to be obsessed with drinking and writing about wine. I quit drinking on 12/26/2018 after feeling stuck in a cycle of problematic drinking for a while. My drinking hadn’t seemed that different from what a lot of other people I knew were doing, but it was making me miserable. Under the surface, I was dealing with horrible anxiety, postpartum depression and PTSD and I used wine to cope. I decided to turn this wine blog into an account of my sobriety “journey” (I hate that word) because I find writing to be therapeutic and also to let anyone else who is struggling know that they are not alone. Today my daughter and I are both healthy and I’m happier than I ever have been. I write about what has helped me in sobriety, how sobriety impacts motherhood for me (and vice versa) and how angry it makes me that our society acts like alcohol is an essential part of motherhood. I’m glad you’re here, wherever you are on your “journey”.
