I Am So Glad You Found Me!
My blog’s purpose is to write in clean detail how I better understand and manage my alcoholism, my depression, and my overeating.
I hope my writing helps you heal because the way I feel about myself today and what I am accomplishing feels fantastic and is much better for me than any drug I abused, alcoholic beverage I overindulged in, or obscenely fattening meal ever made me feel.
And one important thing that would never have happened while I was depressed, drinking, and/or overeating myself into oblivion is how I turned my life around.
Every day, my life is better than it was yesterday, and it is coming together.
Since 11-16-2007, I have worked hard on recovery from my crippling mindsets, eventually going to psychotherapy plus AA Meetings.
On 10-17-2012, I first blogged about “Why Overeat in the First Place?”. I spent the next 8 years searching for that answer.
Well, you know what?
PLUS, I also found out how to stop my cravings for drugs and alcohol! No more yearning to get pot, speed, cocaine, or alcohol.
I can think and don’t have stressful thoughts bouncing around in my mind, driving me to crave alcohol or drugs.
If you have issues in your life you manage to push away for a few months, only for them to resurface every so often. I experience that with my overeating,but I know what I need to do to get them stopped for good.
I know I have several important unmet needs I am putting everything I have into getting them met.
Also, I still have some insomnia problems and terrible, crippling chronic fatigue.
But, everyday I do my best to keep moving forward, determined to overcome those.
Would you like to know how it feels to not have cravings tormenting me all day long?
I know and understand firsthand why I overate, took drugs, blew my money, got blitzed drunk, and self medicated to escape my painful, overwhelming life problems.
So, the focus of this blog is to explain the steps outlining how I get better so you can see and decide how you can too.
And, along the way, I hope to make you laugh, maybe inspire you, and provide you with a little entertainment to keep you coming back.
