Who am I?

Hi, my name is Anne 🙂 OK, fine that’s my middle name, but a middle name is better than no name at all! And, oh god this feels weird and horrible, but I think I am an alcoholic. I am also sober curious. I am 33, I identify as female. I have a boyfriend and a cat, I am French and am finishing a PhD in comparative literature and philosophy in the U.S.A. I used to smoke a pack a day, I quit in May 2019. I like painting, reading, writing, cooking and, unfortunately, beer… a little too much. Honestly, now that I think about it, I have no idea who I am without alcohol. Hoping to find out as I share my thoughts and experience with you in this blog, for better and for worse!

  2. Hi Anne, nice to meet you. I’m not an alcoholic but I’m trying to recover from compulsive ovoereating. In this, balance is more important than abstinence (I follow the Eating Disorders Anonymous philosophy more than OA’s). Anyway, I also deal with a lot of mental health issues and your comment about not knowing who you are without alcohol, definitely spoke to me in that respect. I will be following you in my feed reader.

    1. Hi Astrid, welcome and thanks for commenting! I believe all forms of addictive or compulsive behavior, whether alcoholism, drug, sex or shopping addiction, as well as eating disorders, all have one common denominator: the wounds from our past that we have been trying to self-medicate. When we commit to discovering who we really are and find the courage to embark on a journey of healing, then we learn how to gradually free ourselves of the limiting patterns we have been engaging in to cope so far. I hope your journey brings you insight and strength and I’m looking forward to reading your posts too ! xxx Anne
