Coffee. A classic symbol of sobriety and one of my guilty pleasures, join me in a cup?
I can think of no better place for The Discovering Alcoholic logo to be displayed than on a coffee mug. Wake up everyday to hot cup of java emblazoned with the symbol that will remind you that even the worst day in recovery… is a thousand times better than the best day as a drunk.
So click here to pull up the ShopTDA store where I am offering a coffee mug for every occasion: The travel mug for on the run at work or at play, the TDA logo is a secret symbol for the recovery community only the insiders know! The small office mug with TDA logo and no text, so you can celebrate recovery even at the office! Then there is the king/queen size mug (my favorite) that shouts I am a discovering alcoholic, hear me roar!
Way too much coffee. But if it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever. ~David Letterman

In March of 2007 I officially launched The Discovering Alcoholic. Since May of the same year the site has been updated daily without fail and traffic continues its steady climb. I am extremely pleased and even amazed myself to be able to announce reaching this two year milestone, especially when you consider that over half of all blogs are abandoned in the first month. If you think about it, recovery blogs probably even have a worse record for abandonment (relapse) taking into account the stability and source of the content. No doubt I am proud of this fact just as I am of my uninterrupted 14 years in recovery, but nothing is as rewarding as the feedback and e-mails received from readers stating that the site has played a part in their recovery also… that is the icing on this birthday cake!
Thank you all for reading, participating on the site as well as in my own recovery, and making TDA a success. And keep coming back, I have plans to make TDA in the third year better than ever.
