what the fuck's up

Oh tumblr, how I’ve missed you.  The infinite scroll.  The anonymous venting.  I’m back.  I’m almost positive the last time I was rambling on tumblr, I was a hot mess.  A hot hot mess.  That doesn’t really do it any justice, but it’s okay.  Gotta laugh at yourself, right - ALAS, I’ve gotten my shit together.  I’m not really sure who I’m speaking to…INTERNET, you’ll be pleased to know that alcohol and Xanax are no longer a physical and emotional requirement in my day to day life.  No longer necessary to function.  It’s been 8 months and 7 days since I stopped poisoning my body.  It’s been a hell of a ride.  Some days I hate it.  And some days I love it.  Today is one of those days where I hate the sober life, and instead of obsessing over it, I was like…“oh let’s start a new blog”.  I’ve been wanting to do this for a while.  I consistently resist the suggestion to “write about it”.  It makes me cringe every time someone in sobriety says they stayed up late journaling. Good for you.  Don’t tell me how to live my life.  Anyway, let’s see how this goes - Perhaps my bitching will be annoying.  Perhaps I’ll write some mind blowing wisdom.  Maybe I’ll just reblog tons of pictures of kittens and Led Zeppelin.  I can dig it. 

IM BACK LOVIES! 💋💔 In case you were wondering where I was, my phone screen shattered and then I didn’t have wi-fi in my new apartment! It’s been a crazy week! I moved into my new apartment last weekend, my last day of school was Tuesday, I graduate this Tuesday and am doing #makeup for a commercial tomorrow! I am also going on my 40th day of #sobriety!! Things are continuing to go well in my life THANK YOU LORD! 🙏🙌 And, thanks to all of you for all the constant love and support! 👍😘💛 #makeupartist #hairenvy #me #selfie #limecrime #bhcosmetics #naked3 #naked2 #urbandecay #macgirls #bareminerals #mermaidhair #igers #instagood #bellami #teambellami #hairpost #hairporn #success #blessed #greatful #stayhumble #sobergirls

Alcohol Advertisements

I want to start this text off to let everyone know I am not against people who drink. I myself use to drink and it’s a lot of fun but unfortunately I just can’t drink responsibly and shouldn’t be drinking period. 

I posted a quote about alcohol advertisements earlier. The scam is they train everyone’s brains into thinking that drinking alcohol make you cool or a part of a certain crowd. This is an illusion people fall into. I myself experience the pain of this illusion. I’ve been in situations where I’ve felt left out or “uncool” or like I’m missing out. But what am I missing out on really? A horrible hangover the next day, poor decisions, possible puking and death. I’ve been doing some self reflecting and the media has brought on these illusions to make me feel this way. The media and society has planted a seed in advertisements to try and tempt me back into indulging in alcohol with every movie, TV, and billboard thrown in my face and I refuse to give into this scam.  

Alcohol covers up who I really am and gives me false feelings of enjoyment. I want to live my life in reality. I want to feel everything even if that means feeling pain. I want to live in truth and I want to inspire others who have the same struggles as I. Life is a wonderful thing and is meant to be lived to the fullest.

Soooooo @ashweelb did this to me last night.

Get up and get it! 👍👌💪 99% of my workouts are done either with my son or with him in the room playing. Otherwise I wait for him to nap and get that #workout in. It is super important to not make excuses for not being able to work out. Truth is, if you wanted it bad enough you would do whatever it takes to make it possible! So…….SUCK IT UP AND GET TO MOVIN! 👏🙏🙌 #me #fit #fitmom #fitness #momlife #girlswithtattoos #tattooed #lifestyle #lifestylechange #sober #sobriety #soberlife #sobergirls #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosswednesday #iusedtobefat #healthyissexy #healthyliving #weightwatchers #transformation #goals #igers #instagood #instalikes #noexcuses

Had to share this joy with you all ❤❤❤ I’ve never felt so positive, loving & proud of my body as I do tonight. The work I’ve done in my meditation & breaking negative thought patterns (using the incredible Gupta Programme) have been what’s helped me FINALLY get over some pretty serious body image issues. Fuck. It’s really fucking good to love the skin you’re in! Who needs booze when I can feel this good just getting all loved up on myself!!

Sharing my story of my addiction and the start of my recovery is one of the best decisions I have made. I have received so much support since @partysoberclothing shared my story on their blog for the #partysoberchallenge and it feels so amazing. From hearing others stories and that I’m #notalone is a wonderful feeling. I hope that my story can touch someone and maybe inspire their sobriety and show them it is possible to kick the booze for good! Thank all of you for the support it truly means a lot. 💞😇 #addiction #sober #soberlife #sobergirls #soberissexy #neverhungover #healthyliving #thankyoulord #sobriety #igers #instagood #instalikes #alcoholfree #gome #happiness #love #lovelife #freedom #mua #reallife #proud #notashamed #inspire #mua #nonalocholic

If you look hard enough, you will find where you belong. If you let yourself you will feel acceptance. If you choose to you will feel love. While you are constantly looking around to find all of these things you will realize it all comes from within - in recovery you choose to feel love, acceptance, and belonging. It is only recovery you can finally give those gifts to yourself. choose yourself & choose recovery #recovery #sobriety #soberlife #soberissexy #sobermovement #onedayatatime #selflove #psychology #selfcare #mindfulness #mentalhealth #meditation #selflove #narcoticsanonymous #alcoholicsanonymous #aa #na #serenity #sobergirls #sober #yoga #selfacceptance #change #life #meaning #giveback #12steps #addiction #motivation #gratitude #soberliving by dr.lisalong http://ift.tt/1SXkNkJ

Just because I don’t drink doesn’t mean I still can’t have a relaxing, calm night. I used to think that drinking was my only way to unwind and relax but, I am finally believing what I knew all along and that’s, ‘you can’t look for outside vices to make the inside happy’. Every day gets easier and I feel better as well. I know I can get through this and keep it up! Goodnight lovies! 💞👍🍓🍐🍒 #nonalocholic #sober #soberlife #sobergirls #soberissexy #candlelight #ikea #sparklingcider #bonesbrigade #boozefree #flowers #igers #instagood #instalikes #happiness #neverhungover #ayurveda #gome #goodnight #soblessed #thankyoulord #healthyissexy #healthyliving #makeupartist #zzz
