My name is Andrea, and I created this blog to document my experiences with alcohol addiction. I wanted to have a platform to share my recovery experiences with others who are struggling. There is a lot of misinformation out on the internet, and I felt obligated to share my own experiences authentically so that others who are struggling can access real and helpful information. I am using this blog as a tool for my own continued recovery.
In this blog, I will be covering a few different topics. I will be sharing some things publicly that only an alcoholic would know. I feel as though these first-hand experiences and insight into what it feels like to be an alcoholic may help to keep others who see my story from going down the same road that I did. Below you will find detailed information about the topics I’m covering.
I will be sharing my story, and how I became an alcoholic and later recovered.
