One of the most irritating things about sobriety is getting left with a bunch of thoughts and feelings you have no idea what to do with.
One minute, you’re fine, and the next you’re thinking about a million stupid things you did when you were drunk. These thoughts intensify and swarm your brain like a hive of angry bees.
Your instinct is to drink so you can settle down. BUT WAIT! You can’t drink, and so panic sets in.
You want to drink and you want to stop thinking about everything swirling inside your head. But you can’t do either and it’s driving you bonkers.
After the third or fourth day of this, it’s enough to make a person give up.
And many of us have. Myself included.
You can’t white knuckle sobriety. It’s too hard.
You need tools – a place to direct all that crazy-making energy.
And that’s why I want you to start journaling.
The internet is full of quick fixes and trends. But here’s the thing.
You don’t have to bother with 99.9% of them.
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. We know what works. Journaling is one of those things.
Sobriety is not easy. There are good days and days that are nothing but struggle.
You get through all of it by developing tools and routines to manage the tough stuff.
Journaling helps you gain critical insight into what drives you to drink so that you can undo it one page at a time.
In this 44 PAGE DIGITAL JOURNAL, you’ll get printable writing prompts and workbook pages to help you:
You’ll also receive a BONUS SECTION with prompts and worksheets to help you navigate slip ups in the event you drink again.

Yes! There are several apps that allow you to type or write into PDF files and digital products. Check out GoodNotes, PDF Expert, or Notability. (There are others as well).
All you have to do is upload your journal to the app of your choice and start writing!
Yes, but you’ll need to use an app or to convert it to an editable document.
There are many free services online that do this. Personally, I recommend using an app like PDF Expert so you can access your journal across all your digital devices.
This is my preferred method of journaling as well. You can either print the entire journal OR print the pages as you need them.
If you like to write for several pages (guilty!), just print out as many pages as you think you’ll need.
Because this is a digital product there are no refunds as there is no way to “return” the item.
