Welcome to my year of learning how to live alcohol-free in a world awash with the stuff

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait.” Paulo Coelho



Welcome. This is my giving up alcohol blog. My head is muzzy, my hair a mess, my arm aches from a new tattoo and my cat is curled up asleep at my feet. My NoMo clock says Day 1. I am not entirely sure how to use WordPress properly yet, but I have 365 days to learn and a fine cup coffee to spur me on. Let’s do this.

On my blog pages, I am going to write about the process of quitting drinking. My About page tells you a little bit more about me. In Reviews, I’m going to explore books, podcasts and other media about giving up drinking, and under Resources, I’ve started to link to helpful online material about going dry.
