WHO am I?

I am a 37 year-old, mother of two beautiful humans, an English teacher, a wife, a weirdo geek chic, an agnostic leaning toward atheism, a writer, a lover of beautiful words, images and sounds, a somewhat proficient cook, avid people watcher and an alcoholic. I do not believe alcoholism is a terminal disease. Rather, I believe it is a chemical dependency and behavioral disorder which is slowly killing me and ruining my life. I believe in hope and I believe I can recover. This is my journey…

    Hi Maya,

    thanks for stopping by my blog and I am very happy to see yours. I love this 100 days sober challenge, but I may love yors the most because on September 21, 2013 my lovely son turns 21, and you turn 100…an auspicious day on both accounts.

    Hang in my friend. It’s not easy, but boy is it worth it. I’ll be back to spend some time here, and check out some on your blog roll that I am not familiar with, but I just wanted to remind you…you are never, ever alone on this journey.

    Trudging right along side of you…Michele

      Thanks so much for the kind words! I am hanging in. Changing 16 + years of bad habits is crazy difficult. (I woke up thinking about what kind of beer we were going to drink on the 4th- it was fleeting but damn this stuff is hardwired). It is good to know that September 21st is a special day. 🙂 I am really attached to it and keeping my June 24th sober “birth” date (I was married on Oct 24- so I love that number). I look forward to getting to know you in this wonderful little world. Best-M
