​I Googled "How to quit drinking" and came across one blog after another. Then I found one — called 'Tired of Thinking About Drinking', by a blogger who went by Belle — that really hit home. I e-mailed Belle; she wrote back and said to contact her whenever I needed to. I began writing to her every day. I still do. It was crucial to have someone who could share my "This is hard! This sucks! What do I do?" struggles.
