Blog: Keep It Simple Silly
I met Adrienne back in June of 2015, and we've become close friends. Adrienne came into the blogging scene shortly after Tami Harper Winn and has been a popular and steady contributor to Drunkless. Her insight and constant reminder that "what we say is also what we hear" and her thought provoking topics and ideas press us to loosen up and think much simpler. She urges those of us with negative thoughts to rethink them and repeat them in a new light with a positive spin.
"My name is Adrienne and I am an alcoholic. I have been in recovery for a few years now, and I've learned living a life in recovery is actually quite simple. It's not always easy, but it is simple. I need to be reminded of that from time to time as I can complicate stuff just as much as the next person. So I decided to share some of my experiences on Drunkless. My aim is to keep them short, to the point and hopefully help another alcoholic in the process. If just one person sees something I wrote and gets hope from it, then it is all worth it. Because I feel that without hope, you have nothing. So, I hope you enjoy what I have to say and happy reading!"
I was very glad to see Adrienne jump onto the Drunkless crew and work side by side with us. She's been another huge contributor to my success in redeveloping my thinking skills, and I still use some of her techniques to reinforce the positive in me.
