Heyyyyyy. I’m Tawny and I’m not an alcoholic. This blog has documented my sobriety journey since I quit drinking November 30th, 2015…without AA.

I decided to quit drinking shortly after relocating from Texas to New York City. A booze-free lifestyle (paired with therapy) has helped me learn who I am and identify the things I was running from. I’m not going to lie, sobriety is tough. It’s not always pretty but it’s always real. Kind of like New York City.

I also write about yoga, music, sex, and politics. Read my other work at tawnylara.com.
