Welcome to Your Sober Sassy Life!

Are you Struggling to Quit Drinking?


Worried that you can’t seem to “moderate”?


Tired of daily “low level” hangovers?


You are in the right place. I can help you get “unstuck”.

I’ve been in the same place….

I recall very vividly one Spring evening, a couple of days after I had my last drink….

I was feeling pretty sorry for myself, and I badly wanted to go to the store and buy a bottle of wine, and just quietly numb myself on the couch in front of the TV. I can’t even remember now, what I was stressing about.

Instead, I went into the garden. And I started to weed a little patch. I remember thinking to myself, that if I just jammed my hands into the dirt, that would somehow stop me from grabbing my car keys and going and buying that bottle of wine.

I kept on weeding, and all the dirt was getting under my nails, and I was crying a little bit, but I kept on going. Gradually, all I was focusing on was that patch of dirt and the pile of weeds beside me.

I didn’t have a drink that night, and I haven’t since. I managed to ‘get out of my head” and just focus on “doing”.


Embracing a Sober Life hasn’t always been easy. But It doesn’t have to be complicated.

Welcome to my website. My mission is to show you how SIMPLE quitting drinking can be. It will require some effort. It will require some action. But I guarantee that it will be worth it!

Sober Ever After…….

I started writing on Day Three of my sober journey. I wrote to distract myself from my cravings and to hold myself accountable. Somehow, it all seemed more real if I documented my progress. My writing turned into the Wine Bitch blog, and then my first book “Sober Ever After, A Memoir”. Less than a year later, I published “Sober Ever After – How to Quit Drinking” and more books are planned for the series, due to be published Fall/Winter 2017.

“Funny and serious and full of great advice…reading your story is like reading my own…it helps like in AA to have something or someone to relate to at the most difficult junction of your life. This book ensures and entertains in sobriety. Thanks Jackie”

Let’s Chat…

Charting your sober journey can be lonely. When you start, it’s confusing and frankly, a bit scary. How will you keep to your plan? What happens at your first “sober outing?” What will people say? It helps to have someone to chat with. Someone to hold you accountable, to help you plan and prepare, and to listen when the going gets a bit rough. Book a chat with me, and I’ll help you get started. Or, better still, let’s chat regularly for a whole year..
