One of my favorite things about becoming sober is getting to focus on myself through personal development. This has a lot of different forms: exercise, finances and budgeting, or even just learning how to be happy without booze. The list of ways to improve yourself is practically infinite.
And when you think about learning, you might think about cracking open a book and learning from someone else. There are loads of sobriety & recovery stories out there to inspire, but surprisingly, many of my favorite books for sober women go way deeper than battling addiction with substance abuse. From the super-inspiring Mel Robbins, to more modern self-help guide Jen Sincero, you’ll find a book you'll be glad you read cover to cover.
