In this podcast episode Cameron shares how he has successfully navigated nearly 6 months of sobriety.

In the early stages of a relationship, I was always terrified of the moment when I had to fess up to why I don't drink. I came up with every answer besides the honest answer which is the simple fact I'm an alcoholic. Below is my Match.com profile summary I created eight days ago. The results of this experiment have been miraculous. 2 years ago I would have been surprised by the results, but knowing my fear was completely irrational, I'm not surprised at all.

 

Hello, my name is Paul and I'm a recovering alcoholic, I'm extremely allergic to horses, at times I struggle with anxiety, and I have been diagnosed ADHD 4 different times by medical professionals.

You're probably wondering why I would lead off with this enticing intro, but after reading a couple profiles, I couldn't get a real idea of who the gals really were... so by being upfront, honest and transparent, I am saving both of us time.

None of these things truly define me, but this is an honest description of who I am. When I first started writing my profile it contained words like funny, outgoing, motivated, happy, and all the other generic descriptors, which do describe me, but I thought I would tell it straight.

 

 

You might be an alcoholic if..

 

- you walk your dog at night with a glass of beer in your hand!!! -Penni

 

.you make a trip to the liquor store for beer but forget the grocery store for the much needed milk. -Angela

 

- You go to pee before bed but realize in horror the next morning that you missed the toilet seat by an entire room. -Jamey

 

-You misplace things..like a decade -Dee

 

- The first thing you do in the morning is check your Facebook, email, and call record to see what you may have done the night before! -Kathy
