Hello! I wrote this introduction and started this blog in September of 2009. As you will see, now almost 10 years later, I continued to drink…until recently, more or less.
My original blog intro:
“This blog is the tale of a drunk. It will document either my deliverance or demise from what some people in our culture call the “Demon-Drink”; ALCOHOL.
I’m in my late-forties (2009) and had my first taste of alcohol when I was about six, but have been drinking steadily since I was 19. I can still remember my first sip of the emerald green, oh so sweet “Creme de Menthe”. So began my love affair with Alcohol!“
Well, I’m 60 now, and the journey continues. I officially quit drinking on September 17th, 2018 and enjoyed my first Christmas and New Years and birthday alcohol free in over 40 years. I say, “officially” because I have had a few short slip-ups since then. But, my long-term plan and goal is to remain drink-free. See the “About Me” page (top right) for more of my background info.
As my original intro stated, the purpose of this blog is to document either my deliverance or demise from the “demon-drug” alcohol. So, you’ll hear me talking a lot about just me, myself and I a lot. I’m so happy and grateful to say it’s now mostly about my deliverance. So far so good, anyway — life’s journey never ends…
Your comments, input, advice, admonishment, whatever, as I travel this journey are all most welcome. I have so desperately wanted to be free. See my blog post’s below for updates.
