Hello! I wrote this introduction and started this blog in September of 2009. As you will see, now almost 10 years later, I’ve continued to drink…until very recently.
I originally wrote this as the introduction back in 2009:
“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 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 almost 60 now, and the journey continues. I had my last drink on November 31st, 2018 and enjoyed my first Christmas and New Years alcohol free in over 40 years. I have no plans to drink again, but only time can prove that true, or not. See the “About Me” page (top right) for more of my background info.
Your comments, input, advice, admonishment, whatever, as I travel this journey are all most welcome and appreciated. I so desperately want to be “finally free”. See my blog posts below for updates.
