How To Celebrate Your Anniversary 🥂


Saturday was my 2,000 day soberversary and what better way to celebrate than to do a Facebook livestream! My only intention in life now is to pay forwards what I have learnt about finding freedom; to share it with those that are READY to also experience lifebeyondaddiction.

One of my clients that did the residential retreat last August shared this weekend celebration with me; nine months of sobriety for them, and boy are they rocking it. Read some of what they said in our secret forum below…

This Daily Motivation email is here to remind you each morning that it is possible for YOU to also achieve; the very fact that you are resonant with this message is proof of that. Freedom is within YOU already…

Member Quote Of The Day:

In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:

This weekend I celebrate nine months sobriety, which is obviously a hallelujah jazz hands moment. But I was thinking about that terminology. Because it isn’t, and never has been, about alcohol. Why give it that power? In reality I am celebrating nine months of living from my heart, of freedom to become who I truly am, to fully embody who I’ve always been – my true nature. I always feel uncomfortable too, when people mention the ‘wine witch’ – it personifies wine, gives it POWER and legs, a body in fact, when all it is in reality for us is a bottle of hell. A one way road trip to hell. For me, I never want to give my power away today to anything or anyone.I still vividly remember the sights, sounds, smells, the colour of the world, where I was standing, when I knew everything had fallen into place and an internal shift had occurred. No surprise to you all that it was the last day of the full retreat and I had nipped out for a crafty fag!!!!, walked back into Jo and Dom’s garden and whoosh … in that very moment everything changed internally. A quantum moment, a shift.

I have never craved alcohol from that moment. NEVER. I have no interest in it. I buy it for my partner and I could just as well be looking at a bottle of squash. No interest, nothing. So in that way it has been easy. I was sober for a month before the retreat and that was done through terror and gritted teeth. That lifted during the retreat. Vanished. And everything became alive. I was alive. I have remained connected to my heart, to myself and that empty, disconnected and hollow feeling left me. Today I live a life as though I have never been addicted. Incredible.

I have of course felt grief, loneliness, feelings of being unimportant, abandoned, discarded….

But it was a blessing. A gift. Everything I have felt in this time has been a coming home to self. A time for growth. I feel whole and complete for the very first time. I no longer look outside of my self for validation, or love. I am love. That’s not to say I don’t want to be loved, needed and wanted, it means I can survive the deepest grief and remain whole. My core sense of self can’t be taken, or given away today. The huge family breakdown….has helped me to realise that although I want people in my life, I don’t need them in a way I once did. I am whole as I am. Any negative toxicity is a non negotiable for me. I won’t tolerate that today. 

I feel alive, strong and enriched by this journey home to self. Painful and dark at times, but always holding trust that I would be ok…
