This blog dedicated to exploring activities that are sober friendly here in Sin City.
Since I know sobriety and addiction triggers can be different for each person, I try my best to categorize posts as follows:
- There may be a coffee shop or restaurant that I feature that does serve alcohol, but that isn’t the main offering of the establishment. That I would categorize as Sober-Friendly.
- However, if there’s a place that doesn’t have alcohol for sale at all, I’ll categorize it as Alcohol-Free.
What this blog isn’t:
- This blog is not a replacement for doctoral advice and I make no claims to be a health professional.
- Please seek the advice and help of a health professional if you feel you are suffering from alcohol abuse, addiction, or suicidal thoughts.
I examined my relationship with alcohol in December of 2014 and stopped drinking entirely a few months later. It wasn’t until recently though that I really took ownership of the word sober.
There are times I still struggle with wanting to drink.
I know some people who stop and don’t really miss it, but I’d be lying if I said there weren’t times I still wrestle with my relationship to alcohol.
This blog is a project to help me (and hopefully others!) celebrate and strengthen their choice of sobriety, especially if they’re living in or visiting Las Vegas.
I should also mention that I don’t judge others.
Everyone has the right to their own choices and some people don’t have issues with alcohol. I have many friends who still drink, and it doesn’t change my thoughts or feelings about them.
When not working or writing here on the blog, I spend most of my free time exploring the city with my husband, daughter, and extended family.
Thank you for stopping by and happy sobering friends!
