600 Words or Less!


All blogs on this blogsite The Alcoholics Guide to Alcoholism will be less than 600 words in length from next week onwards!!

All blogs will be based on my experience of addiction and recovery!

All blogs will be devoid of Sciencespeak!!

I will blog about how I got into research and why in next week’s blogs.

I have taken the hint from my fellow blogger and the continued advice of my wife to keep it simple on this blog from now on!

The penny has finally dropped!

From next week on, blogs of less than 600 words and much more up close and personal!

I want to start connecting more 🙂

    Thank you. I am the mother of an alcoholic and started with your blog when I read a personal account from you. I will appreciate very much your new format. My son started with you, I forwarded to him but he didn’t stick with it because of the reason you have put forth. I also skip most all the science-speak and will look forward to personal accounts that I can relate to.

      thanks Mimi for your post – hopefully a return to a more personal style and format will enable you and your son to relate more to my experience of addiction and subsequent recovery. Paul

    Not all! Not all the posts, please. I love the science and the long reads. Please do one long read with science at least every week.

      the long science reads will be on my other blog http://insidethealcoholicbrain.com/ which was always supposed to be academic as it was part of my PhD research but this blog started off more me sharing my experience of addiction and recovery and will return to that now. The science stuff will still be blogged on at least twice a week on the other blog – thanks for reading and your support Paul 🙂

  3. Hi Paul 🙂 It’s me. Remember, I don’t hate the science! Maybe include a link to your latest science-y post on “Brain” for the neuroscience fans. Either way, I hope this works out for you–and you can always change your theme along the way.
