Publisher's Summary

Old-timers in 12-step programs say that if you want to stay sober, you only have to change one thing: your whole life. Sober Truths: The Making of an Honest Woman recounts how one woman did just that.

Jill Kelly's personal stories describe the journey as two decades of drinking and despair gave way to a richly rewarding sober life. Her demons did not go quietly when she put the bottle down. Loneliness, anxiety, distrust of others - they were all still there. This memoir tells how she has learned to be with those demons and not drink, to let go of the jealous dramas of the past and embrace a new life of peace. Along the way, Kelly reinvents herself, becoming a visual artist, starting a successful business, and developing deep friendships and a satisfying spiritual life. At the same time, she faces the challenges of emotional eating and her sober ambivalence about sexual relationships.

This audiobook offers hope to those who cannot imagine a life without alcohol by someone who has recreated hers.

A beautiful story about recovery

What did you love best about Sober Truths?

Jill tells her full story but what really stood out is the ending. It is so richly layered, sharing, her spiritual practice, art, teachings and her own insecurities. You can read it multiple times and always find a gem to apply to your own journey.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sober Truths?

Her artist retreat. We all have misconceptions of who we think we should be or how we should fit in. Sometimes we are already there in our own way. We just have to make some adjustments.

Which character – as performed by Jill Kelly – was your favorite?

Of course, Jill
