My name is Leif–i’m a 36 year old single father who lives in the Bay Area. My family lives thousands of miles away–so through trial and error I have been doing my best as a working professional and parent. My life in San Jose has been filled with ups and downs–but through it all I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter who loves me regardless of my flaws. I quit drinking April 19, 2014–and it has been quite the psychological, physical and emotional journey. Thank you for visiting my blog–which is intended to support myself through personal reflection, and hopefully support others who struggle with alcoholism.
