So my first blog here will be basic.

I will try not to bore you, nor entertain with this blog. I will simply be me for a moment.

I am Fred. I was born June, 30 1974. I got sober 3-29-04.

I am a writer by trade, actually, I am a jack of all trades. Currently I live in a RV in Huntington Beach CA, with my dog (Sherman) and my partner/fiancee (Amy).

 I am THE alcoholic. Sherman could take it or leave it. Amy is a bit of a "normie", with her own tendencies to imbibe like I used to, only not to the degree or consistency I did.

I must say my favorite thing to do, is sit outside, smoking cloves and drinking coffee. Once in a while I enjoy riding my bike to the pier and people watching. Normally I spend my time working on getting a company up and running. Its a bit crazy at times, but its life.

I have had numerous people ask me how it is that I, an alcoholic, can be around people that drink. Its quite simple really. I am old enough to drive, have a good idea where the nearest liquor store is, and have access to money to buy the stuff if I really wanted it. Hell it would not be below the old me to just steal it…lol

I simply do not have the desire anymore. I do occasionally crave it, that's a fact. When that happens you usually see me make my way straight to the nearest meeting.

That should be enough rambling from me for the moment. 

Until next time…
