I’ve had an interesting 14 months in sobriety. When I think back to 12 months ago and how difficult the first 6 months were, I give myself a big pat on the back for sticking through with the program. Addiction recovery wasn’t an easy thing for me to combat, I was constantly bombarded with my demons and poison each time I stepped out of my flat. There were days I truly thought I’d never get through.

Sydney has The Grounds of Alexandria, London has Sketch and The Ivy in Chelsea, Zagreb has Caffe Bar Finjak.

Basically the go-to for fashionistas, social media stars and those ‘in the know‘ of where to go,  be seen and photographed.

Back then I was an expensive date, now I’m a very cheap one.

I can’t say my recovery has been easy, more often I have “off” days than “on” but as a sobriety devotee, alcoholics anonymous and all, I understand that it’s all part of the process. I am constantly googling what to expect in sobriety and if what I am experiencing is normal, reinforcing the fact that I am finally on the right path in my life, at 30 years of age.
