As of mid-October, Miley Cyrus celebrates 4 MONTHS SOBER, despite a long period of alcohol and substance abuse❗️
“It’s the best I’ve ever felt. I’m radiating.”
It’s understood that some people have a strong aversion to celebrities like Miley, especially because of troublesome behavior she has shown in the past.
But this is an opportunity to display acceptance and non-judgment 🙏 Addiction doesn’t discriminate based upon your bank account or fame.
Entering recovery is a HUGE accomplishment 💙 so congrats to her for moving in the right direction!
This is the analogy I use when trying to explain to normies what it feels like inside the alcoholic brain. After a couple of glasses of rosé, a normie might get a bit giggly and switch to water because they have to drive later or look after the kids. After a couple of glasses of rosé, we are likely sneaking shots of vodka from our purse in private while pretending to have only a couple glasses of rosé in public. Once we’re in our alcoholism, three drinks just get us back to normal, we are forever playing catch up because we are hungover, anxious or tired. Sure, sometimes I drank for ‘fun’ - spoiler alert, it was rarely ‘fun’ in the end. But other times I drank with total blackness and obliteration as my goal. In sobriety, we get to see ‘normal’ from a whole new perspective.

The regret of drinking alcohol always lasts longer than the temporary craving.

500 days alcohol-free 💖
With each day, I step more confidently into my capability and my life’s possibility.
With each day, I deepen my well of gratitude.
With each day, I grow stronger, more secure, more content.
I can’t pinpoint exactly when I became a non-drinker. I never made a concrete decision to stop drinking. In July 2018, I committed to a year-long booze break. I educated myself, I empowered myself, I found my tribe. I flirted shamelessly with a sober identity - thinking it would never last - and ended up falling in love. I fell in love with the clarity and the energy and the brilliance. I fell in love with my sober self. And now, 500 days in, I don’t ever want to let her go.
I own these 500 days with pride. They are all mine. I hold each of them - the best ones and the worst ones and each and every one in between - in love and light today, honoring every stage of this incredible journey.
Bright eyes. Open mind. Happy heart. This is me at 500 days alcohol-free 🥰

Two years sober today! I was given the chance to meet and get to know Taylor a little over 2 years ago. I'm happy to say that she is an entirely different woman today and an inspiration to all! lets give it up to Taylor and her 2 years sober! "2 years ago today, laying on a cold jail cell floor, dope sick and hopeless, I surrendered my life over to something. I found out that that something was God, dressed up as police officers the night before, that saved my life. The last two years have been full of ups and downs. The first year I struggled financially, got kicked out of a halfway house, found myself alone and dealt with the most fear of my life. This second year has been amazing though, I became a leader in a company, got engaged, got married and bought a home. I found that my life is full of blessings and continues to be as long as I give my will to God. I continue to realize everyday that life is amazing sober and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I know going into year three I can handle anything life throws at me because of FAITH. I love this life and the people who have helped me along the way. THANK YOU SOBRIETY." 🙌🏻 #recoveryinc
When I started my YouTube channel I promised to engage in a dialog. This video is the first of a new series of "conversations" to expand that dialog, and explore the different ways that we recover.
Would you please share with your followers? It would mean a lot to me.

Sobriety vs Recovery & the Transfer of Addictive Behaviors
I saw somebody post in one of the sobriety Facebook groups asking the question "What is the difference between sobriety vs recovery" and I thought, hmmm.... I came up with my own answer in my head and then continued on to read the comments. This is a concept that I am very familiar with just through my own experiences but had not labeled it as sobriety vs recovery in my head. It was nice to see that other people were actually having this conversation as well. So I read the comments and began researching the topic for myself in the plan of producing a blog post/podcast on the topic.
What ended up happening was that through the process of researching this topic, I ended up learning more about myself and came to the realization that I was unaware that I am still dealing with some of these issues currently.

“One time, when I was strung out on drugs and alcohol, I had given my dad a blue mickey mouse wallet with a $10 bill in it. The reason I gave him that was because, when he was 4 years old and he was recovering from polio, he had a blue mickey mouse wallet in his hospital room and one of the nurses took it. And that crushed him. So, when he had cancer, like 50 years later when I was a teenager, I gave him a blue mickey mouse wallet with a $10 bill in it. Cut to 4 years later, I’m strung out on heroin and there was nothing left for me to sell in their house, so I took that $10 that I gave back. And I have always been ashamed of that. I’m proud to say that I’m clean and sober now. And um, my father’s no longer with me, but I just want to say, I love you, dad. And I’m sorry and I hope you’re proud of me now.”
