Privacy Policy & Disclosures

The website address is www.myunrulyaddiction.com. This Website is a personal blog about my journey to recovery. Please keep any information strictly confidential. It was created to help people with addiction learn from my experiences. My views are my own.

My Unruly Addiction contains information relating to alcohol and addiction. Although I have done a lot of research in this field, I am not a health care professional. It is strongly recommended that you seek professional advice regarding your health before attempting to incorporate any advice enclosed, especially if you have reached a point of physical dependence on alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms due to a physical dependence on alcohol have the potential to be severe, and in some cases life-threatening. Those who seek to abstain entirely from alcohol should consult a qualified health care professional. The information contained on this Website is not meant to replace professional or medical guidance. By incorporating any advice into your life or taking some of the challenges, you agree to the full terms and conditions.

The content of this site, such as text, graphics, email communication, images, videos and other material contained are for information purposes only.

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health providers with any questions you may have regarding a health or medical condition.
