I’m a 57-year-old recovered alcoholic. Around 5 years ago I recovered via the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, but without the fellowship of AA.
Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to understand what happened to bring about that recovery, conversing face-to-face with fellow alcoholics, participating in on-line discussions, and reading as much as I could on the subject. I’ve come to the conclusion that there is a lot of BS floating around both the real world and the internet concerning the problem and the solution.
This blog was conceived in loving-kindness to help those who still suffer in the problem or struggle to maintain a fragile sobriety move beyond limiting beliefs and constricting definitions; to inspire you, motivate you, and even validate you; to be a source of hope in a cynical world.
