New From Exploring Sobriety: Sober at 29, High-Functioning Alcoholics, and More
Hello and welcome to the weekly update email from Exploring Sobriety!
In case you’re new here, my name’s Benya, I’m a recovered alcoholic, and I write regularly about addiction in this blog and my weekly newsletter. Each Monday, I send out these emails (which also get posted to Medium) with a recap of what I’ve written about sobriety over the past week.
If you’re interested in learning about addiction (maybe you’re thinking about getting sober, maybe you already have, or maybe you just know an addict and want to learn more), then I hope you’ll enjoy these articles:
- 5 Celebrities Who Got Sober at 29 — I quit drinking when I was 29, so I always take notice when I hear about someone else who quit at the same age. Any guesses which 5 celebrities chose this age to get sober? Click here to find out.
- I’ve Become One of Those People Who Won’t Shut Up About Sobriety — Why is it that people who get sober won’t stop talking about being sober? Here’s my answer.
I also wrote a new post in my weekly Substack newsletter: Do “High-Functioning” Alcoholics Really Exist? This newsletter goes back and forth between paid and free content. This essay is for paid subscribers, and tomorrow’s will be for everyone. There’s also a free one-week trial of the paid subscription, so please check it out!
That’s it from last week. Thank you very much for reading, and I hope you have a great week!
