Part of getting sober is educating yourself about addiction. This is one of the best pieces I’ve read recently: A Neuroscientist Explores Addiction, the Brain, and Her Past.

It’s been over four years now since I had a drink, and I am definitely gaining a lot more clarity as I get more distance. If I had known how much better life would be, I would have quit booze years ago.

Early sobriety is hard, partly because you don’t have anything to measure it by. With this in mind, I wrote What Nobody Dares Tell You About Getting Sober. Because as any of the sober or soberish people know, it isn’t all pink cloud.
