"Throughout that entire first year of sobriety, I longed for some shorthand for everything I wanted to say: the confusing pride I felt about my past destructive life, the odd embarrassment I felt over my current redeemed one. I hadn't the faintest idea of how to have fun without drinking?. I was still discovering all sorts of terrible truths, like how parties without drinking were really just a lot of people standing in the same room and like how movies I once found funny were often riddled with stilted language and bad dirty jokes. And how, without my booze-fueled sense of rock-star self, I had no clue as to who I was—or whether or not I was any fun. I had lost my swagger." In her new post-addiction memoir, Sacha Z. Scoblic doesn't get that swagger back, but she recovers something much more valuable.
