UnPickled Holiday Survival Guide: Staying Alcohol-Free During the Festive Season is now available in paperback and ebook!
This book represents many lessons and insights from years of blogging and podcasting. It’s full of wisdom from guests and followers about navigating the holidays, plus has tips for friends and family on how to be supportive of sobriety.
I’m exhausted and proud and scared. My arms are tingling from so many hours on the computer these past weeks. My dog is gaining weight from the lack of walks.
But this project was laid on my heart with certainty and clarity; I couldn’t ignore the calling.
The book is a mix of practical tips for attending parties and events, plus it also looks at why this time of year can be so tricky. Topics include expectations, invitations, family gatherings, hosting, work events, socializing with friends, and transfer behaviours. Each chapter also ends with a reflection exercise, a recovery tool, tips for family and friends, and wise words from other people in recovery.
Thanks for all of the encouragement as this project came to life.
I hope you find it helpful!
