How I Stopped Thinking About (not) Drinking and Started Loving My Life.
In Wholly Sober, you will join me on a fast track account of my life with alcohol. Starting with my first hangover at just five years old. Against the odds, I didn’t struggle with sobriety but learned to view and live sober differently.
Not everyone who struggles with alcohol is alcoholic, and there’s more than one way to live sober.
Wholly Sober is a fast track of Teresa Rodden’s relationship with alcohol starting with her first hangover at just five years old. She shares how she had all the makings of a bonafide alcoholic, but chose to dismiss conventional theories about how to live sober. Being the latest in a lineage of women that lived understanding two things: Life is painful and alcohol will numb that pain. This is what she believed, too—as she navigated teen pregnancy, abusive relationships, staggering debt, and spiritual crisis.
This is her powerful story of clearing the debris left behind after years of pain and poor choices and her reconnection with her God-given dreams, talents, and purpose. Rodden describes how she journeyed beyond commonly-held beliefs about sobriety and 12-step recovery into a life she calls “wholly sober”— a life in which she now helps other women live joyfully, purposefully, and free from alcohol abuse.
Warning: Strong language is used to maintain the authenticity of character and experience.
