I’m an alcoholic in recovery who believes that you don’t need gods or goddesses to get sober, just regular work with other alkies and some good personal habits. I hope this can be a place to share my story and talk about the science of alcohol, theories of addiction, and anthropology. Somewhere between becoming an alcoholic and getting sober I graduated with a PhD in anthropology and work in public policy.

The Beagle did all of those things I could never write on a job or grant application.
