Enjoying life alcohol-free
L A U R I E M C A L L I S T E R
Hi I’m LAURIE
I’m a sobriety advocate, marketing geek, once-upon-a-time yoga-teacher, and writer from the UK.
From 2016-2021, I wrote a public sobriety blog on this website called Girl & Tonic.
Five years ago, I stopped drinking alcohol and it helped me turn my life around. I shared my journey in the hope it would help people feel less alone with their drinking struggles – and to show them it was possible to do the same.
Now it’s time for me to turn inwards, and to take stock before I continue to share my guts on the internet. I’m not going to add to this blog any longer. 2022 Laurie does not necessarily think the same as 2016/2017/2018/2019/2020 or 2021 Laurie, but for now the blogs are here for you to read.
There are so many more amazing sobriety resources now, and I have shared some below for you.
If you want to keep in touch, sign up for my very occasional email.
However you found me, and wherever you want to go – I’m wishing you so much luck on your journey.
Lots of love,

Gratitude sometimes can feel like it’s been overdone (just me?!) and yet the benefits of gratitude have been proven time and time again. Even the notion of being grateful on a hard day conjures up an […]
