My name is Allie Holbrook. At thirty five I quit alcohol cold turkey and stepped into a sober, and better, life. I blog about my experience as a mother in getting sober, and give advice on how to quit alcohol and the side effects of quitting alcohol. The short version is this: you’ll feel very tired all the time at first, then you’ll feel a million times better. Also there is a very good chance that you will put on weight at first, just so you know.
I’m a freelance feature writer and content marketing writer specialising in addiction and recovery writing. My work has been published in a range of publications including Substance, Recovery and Mumsnet. My portfolio can be viewed here.
