Writing Your Recovery Book
I need to write this down..
Organize the confusion. An outlet for stress. The need to tell the story. A need to communicate. Tapping into a creative “flow”. Venting anger and resentment. Documenting progress. Helping others….
Writing for Recovery. Writing for Your Life.
On the third day…
Of my new fragile sobriety, I know that I needed to DO something to keep me focused and accountable.
So I started to write a blog.
I didn’t think anyone would read it. I wrote it mainly for myself. For those times that I felt wobbly or stuck, all my thoughts, hopes and fears would be there, documented, to either motivate me or terrify me into continuing down the sober path.
After a while, it became much more than that. Not only was I communicating to a much larger audience than I ever expected, my blog became an outlet for my anxieties, my joy, and more than that, my creativity.
Writing is essential for my sobriety. Writing is part of who I am. Writing is a way of life, and these days, it has ever started paying the bills.
Blogging, journaling, memoir, self-help, poetry and fiction. I write it all. And I can help you do the same.
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you”
Why Write A Book?
Especially a book about your drinking and your recovery! I always wanted to write a book, but it was not until I quit drinking that it became a possibility…
And I’m not alone.
Since I joined this wonderful sober community, more and more people are finding their creativity, and new ways to express themselves. Lots of people have amazing inspirational stories. But aren’t there enough sober memoirs and recovery stories?
It’s simply not true.
Writing your own recovery story can be cathartic and therapeutic. It can be an accomplishment which is right up there with sobriety. And more than that – YOUR story will inspire others to join this wonderful sober revolution!

What do I say? How do I start? What am I trying to accomplish?
When I put my first stumbling words onto paper, I couldn’t translate the words in my head (that sounded eloquent, poetic and EXACTLY what I wanted to say) into coherent written sentences. It took a lot of practice. The only way to get better at writing is to write. But the more I write, the more I get “unstuck”, the more creative I feel…..and the more I write.
