Flying Sober is proud to present someone’s unique story in their own words; sharing their experience, strength and hope.

Julie – Getting Honest

Julie is such a gentle soul, you often wonder if she ever had a problem at all. But the biggest issue was getting honest with herself.

Jonathan – Quiet Waters

Jonathan is the kind of guy that if you need help with anything, he would be the first one to show up. He is shy and reserved, and normally will sit in the back of the room. But as the saying goes “quiet waters run deep,” his story involves deep turmoil and salvation.

Maree from Bali

Maree is one of the most magical people. She may be oceans apart but so much closer in spirit. Her light shines so brightly from afar. It’s no surprise that her recovery broke every barrier, and she continues to pass on the love.

Heather – Living in Gratitude

Heather’s recovery is the perfect metaphor of a lotus flower. She raised herself from the ground up and continuously seeks to flourish her life. She has become a great friend, a wonderful sister, daughter and a person that is admired by many. All of that stems from the gratitude she has for the program and her recovery in general.

Kristen is one of these people that are approachable and easy to talk to. She’s a prime example of that and funny as hell. This is her story.

Blessed Dulli

What a great way to start the New Year, with one of the most optimistic individuals you’ll meet, but she didn’t always feel this way. She claims, even on her best days her character defects still get the best of her. So, how does she do it?

Chicago John

If Santa Claus were a recovering alcoholic, he would be named Chicago John. They seem to have a lot in common; always optimistic and driven to do the next right thing. We can tell you for certain his journey is like no other, but it eventually turned into “It’s a Beautiful Life.”

Rachael – Finding Oneself

As the founder of Flying Sober I feel proud and exhilarated to share my story. Like everyone else the struggles I exprienced in addiction, and life in general, have propelled me forward in ways I could have never imagined.

Donnie – Winning the War

He is someone who battled addiction throughout his life. He struggled, he fought, and ironically through surrendering he actually won the war.
