  1. I am so much everything you are writing about…as I sit here in my gym shorts and workout shirt drinking my wine. I get the family up in the morning, clean the house walk the dog , pay the bills, and smile, but drink in the afternoon ( Fri, Sat , Sun, and the off Tuesday or Thursday). I am determined to stop this awful habit (disease). I feel so alone at times but know I can do this.

    • Trisha, you are not alone. I’m always here to talk or support you in any way I can. Recognizing that you are drinking too much is a big step. But, as “we” like to say “faith without work, is dead.”

    • Oh my gosh, thank you! I’m so humbled by the recognition. I still need to post about the previous award you nominated me for! Life has been crazy, but this is the last week of school and then it’s summer vacation – yay! Thank you again and I’ll be sure to pass the happiness on very soon!

  2. I googled sobriety blogs and stumbled onto yours, humored by the name, “Uncorked.” Alcohol has been a part of my life for many years… I would say in the beginning my relationship with it was abusive; as a teenager and into my early twenties I modeled what seemed to be normal behavior based on the crowd I was in, missional drunkenness. I was young, foolish, and living recklessly…until the bottom hit. This was when I met Jesus. He changed my life drastically, friends changed, college happened, met my husband, got married, children came, all within 5 years. I will be married 16 years this year. Over these years, the Lord has been sanctifying me, and although I never gave up alcohol completely, I became very disciplined with it. I simply enjoy a glass or sometimes 2 of wine a couple times a week. I mean seriously, this is below normal behavior in our alcohol saturated social culture. However, God is nudging me to give it up. Why? I don’t have a “problem” with it. I am very responsible with it and barely drink at all at this point. This has been my bartering approach with God. Yet, he’s calling me to sobriety. I enjoy having a glass of wine with my husband on a Friday or Saturday night. Why is God wanting to take that away from me? I don’t know. A friend tells me she thinks God is going to use me in leadership and this is part of the sacrifice to my calling. That may be, I don’t know, but here I am…needing support. It is scary, because my sobriety will affect all of my relationships and I’m not sure I can do it. It’s a way to fit in, and I like fitting in. Anyhow, reading your blog posts are encouraging and I appreciate so much your honesty and down to earth approach.
