Hello! I’m Rosie, a 26 year-old from Wellington, New Zealand and I’ve had a long love affair with wine.

Over the last few years I was steadily downing a bottle of wine with dinner every evening. Even though I was well aware that wasn’t normal behaviour, I still managed to live a very normal life. I felt like I was balancing on that tightrope between being ‘a girl who likes her drink’ and someone whose drinking was getting way out of control…

Towards the end of 2015 I came to the conclusion that my relationship with booze was becoming pretty unhealthy, so I decided to remove the booze from my life.

This blog is my place to record my thoughts and progress, whinge, share (overshare), and keep in touch with many other amazing sober folk that keep me sane.

I’m a huge fan of advice, so if you have any golden nuggets of wisdom, I’d love to hear your comments.

I sporadically check emails at candyflossfog@gmail.com so if you want a penpal, flick me an email.

Wish me luck! x
