My name is Adrian, and I’m a writer in my
forties early fifties living in Minnesota and Iowa. After using alcohol to numb and/or jumble my stressors for nine long years, I finally got a foothold in 2015 with which to try to steady myself in a life without this drug.
I used the sobriety blogosphere for several months before really trying to quit alcohol to give me insights and strength and to help blast holes in my excuses. Now I’d like to contribute (and to lean on you all in a different way). For many years I’ve been well aware that my drinking was just a by-product of some misaligned gears inside myself, so the fact that quitting drinking is bringing layers and layers of reactions inside my head (and body) is of no surprise.
But I’m doing this all alone, and so am looking to cyberspace for a place to talk it through. Your thoughts are welcome!
