I have had a great pleasure to contribute a post for the Sober Mommies site!
I found Sober Mommies blog while I was searching for more recovery support from the mommy side, as I try to juggle sobriety along with the kids, and the housework, and the job and… well you know, the million other things. The site is run by Julie, the founder, and it features posts from other sober mommies on various topics, as well recovery related information.
While I was searching for more support, I was also looking for information on how to talk to my kids about recovery. I have always wanted to, (although feared) talk to my kids about recovery because, I know that this is a family disease, and there is this part of me that worries, and knows, that one day, my kids might need recovery too! I was quite surprised but all I found was info on how to deal with active alcoholism, and yes, this is extremely important, but, information on talking about recovery with our kids just didn’t seem to be out there.
So of course when Julie from Sober Mommies asked me to contribute an article on this topic, I was thrilled and grateful for this amazing opportunity! So, come join me over at the Sober Mommies blog! To read my post for Sober Mommies, please click HERE.
