Hard Days, Tom Felton, and More From Exploring Sobriety
Welcome to the weekly roundup for Exploring Sobriety. If you’re looking for some “quit lit” to get you through the week, you’re in the right place.
In these roundups, I share all of my most recent writing about addiction and recovery.
New Blog Posts
- How Tom Felton Finally Got Sober — Daniel Radcliffe famously quit drinking several years ago, but I was surprised to learn that his Harry Potter co-star, Tom Felton, quit too. His story provides some nice inspiration.
- My Hardest Sober Day — What was your hardest day since getting sober? Mine came early on.
- Every Addict Should Hear This Bo Burnham Speech — There’s an old Bo Burnham clip making the rounds on social media. Even though it’s not directly about addiction, I think it’s extremely relevant to addicts and definitely worth a listen.
In addition to this blog, I also send out a weekly newsletter via Substack. Last week, I mentioned that it was “getting awfully close to 500 subscribers.” I’m happy to share that this week we shot past that milestone.
I want to give a huge, huge thank you to everyone who has subscribed! I hope that you’re enjoying it.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, the newsletter is about alcoholism, but with a very personal focus. I treat it more like a series of essays than a traditional newsletter.
It alternates each week between paid and free editions, so if you sign up for a free account, you’ll still get a ton of content. To those of you who have signed up for a paid account, thank you very much! Your support helps me a lot to keep the newsletter going.
Let me end by wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I’m grateful to everyone who has helped me to get and stay sober. My drinking habit was destroying my life, and I know that I never could have quit alone.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with plenty to be grateful for!
As always, thanks for reading, and have an awesome week,
