Double Shot of Sober is a story of hope and healing from addiction recovery. It is a woman’s journey of a lifetime of transferring from one addiction to the next in hopes of finding that thing that would give her peace, serenity, purpose, and sense of belonging. It was not until she stopped all the harmful ways of people pleasing, eating disorders, overspending, over working. and abusively drinking alcohol that she found what she was seeking. Change was required for her to live life honest and free.
As she journeyed through the messy, hard, and unknown by practicing daily prayer, read books on recovery and wellness, claimed a seat in a 12-step program, collaborated with a therapist, laughed, and cried with family and friends and daily accepted life on life’s terms, she found wellness. No matter what happened – divorce, death, and even success, she showed up with a clear mind, body and spirit and allowed the God of her understanding to direct her life. She desired desperately to live life honest and free, and the day finally came she felt like life was like wearing a loose shirt! This is a promise that one can experience as they uncover, discover, and take action on a journey of recovery.
