A quick intro from Summer

Hey everyone! I’m a sober mom of 2 and a librarian living in Long Beach, California. When I’m not at work or spending time with my family, I’m probably reading a book (surprisingly librarians DON’T get to spend time reading at work!), running–I’m passionate about exercise as an aid for mental health, rewatching old familiar favorite tv shows, or eating something ridiculous spicy. Since I got sober during the pandemic and spent a lot of time building my career and caring for my young kids prior to that, I am super excited about building sober friendships and expanding my social life with soberIRL!

A couple of Summer’s favorites

Drink: sparkling water & Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher

Quit Lit: Quit Like a Woman by Holly Whitaker and This Naked Mind by Annie Grace

Podcast: I’m wanting to get into podcasts more! Mostly I just listen to audiobooks (that’s how I read a lot of my Quit Lit!)
