33. part 1, why and how I quit drinking alcohol after 26 years of binge-drinking

Episode 33: I accidentally quit drinking alcohol in 2020 at age 47, after 26 years of a binge-drinking and a daily drinking habit.

I never planned on going alcohol-free, I just wanted to cut back. But I accidentally lost all desire for alcohol. I've been alcohol-free since November 1, 2020.

Please understand that my body was never physically addicted to alcohol. However, my mind was. I used alcohol to cope with the ups and downs of my life.

When life was going good--great! It was time to celebrate with alcohol.

When life was going not so great, it was time to self-medicate with alcohol to cope with things.

This is part 1 of my story--How and WHY I started drinking alcohol.

In order to understand HOW i quit, it's important to understand HOW and WHY I started drinking alcohol in the first place.


I'm sharing intimate details from my childhood, teens, twenties, thirties and fourties -- and how my drinking habit progressed over the years.

I apologize in advance if some of the details are upsetting -- like me driving under the influence and never getting caught.

I made a lot of mistakes...but these mistakes also led me to where I am today. I'm now at peace with everything.

Give this episode a listen.

Part 2 will be out soon.
