I am Pattie, 51 years old, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend…
I live in New Zealand or Aotearoa, meaning ‘long white cloud’ in Maori (the language of our tangata whenua or indigenous people).
This blog is my journey to recovery from alcohol addiction – desperate times call for desperate measures. I hope it will be a living document, diary, memoir, outlet, reminder, crutch… I’ll add and subtract as I go along.
P.S If you’re wondering, those are my hands pretending to type on my typewriter.
