Top Sobriety Blogs 2020


When you go for Sobriety, it is very likely that you will be all over the internet looking for inspiration, I know I was even long before I succeeded. I expect that I will do more of these posts because sometimes a few sentences or quotes about sobriety said over in your mind through self talk can be the difference between you and that first drink and therefore can be key to continued sobriety also.

The quotes about sobriety herein are just some to hopefully help inspire you and come from my own comments (mostly on Instagram), some well known folk and some unknown folk but in any case I hope you like them:
