Self-Help / Substance Abuse & Additions / Alcohol
by Peggi Conney
“This Side of Alcohol is borne out of the cathartic journaling I did during the first two years following my break-up with alcohol. It tells the story of what I did to get and stay sober, allowing me to transform my shame, guilt, and anger into self-compassion, self-discovery, and forgiveness – of myself and others. I lived my life engulfed in cognitive dissonance; teaching about the connection between trauma and addiction while I was drinking every evening. It follow my journey from self-loathing isolation to a joyous community of support and rediscovered intimacy with my family. Today I feel pride in being present and authentic in every aspect of my work and life.
This Side of Alcohol is my story of living my sobriety out loud, telling the truth, and being at peace.”
