Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 5 Ep10: Special guest and sailor Paul Trammell Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Where every journey is worth living.

    • Self-Improvement

In 2015, I quit drinking, and  my life began changing dramatically and rapidly, all for the better. I  wrote my first book about my experience getting sober, and the methods I  developed in order to do so. This book is  "Alcoholics Not Anonymous."

While seeking out substitutes  for alcohol, I rediscovered my love for adventure. I began devouring  sailing nonfiction books. I used the money I saved from my first year of  not drinking to buy a week-long sailing class  . I bought my first sailboat later that year, Sobrius, in St Petersburg, FL, and sailed her alone to the Dry Tortugas, then  Miami, and finally to St Augustine. The trip covered 1000 miles and was  an adventure that I will  never be able to repeat. I wrote about this experience, in my second  book, "Becoming a Sailor."



In 2018, I sailed alone to The  Bahamas and spent 2 months exploring the islands and searching for  adventure. I found more than I bargained for, and wrote about this in my  third book, "Journey to the Ragged Islands."



In the summer of 2019, I sold  my house, quit my job, gave away or sold all my belongings, and bought a  bigger boat, a 1972 Cartwright 40, Windflower. I bought her in  Massachusetts, worked on her for three months, then sailed her to The  Bahamas, solo. I arrived on New Year's Day and spent four months in The  Bahamas. I wrote about this experience in my book  "Chasing the Nomadic Dream." I've since written two novels, "Dead  Flowers on Wednesday" and "The Gold Box," and a sequel to my first book,  called "The Joy of Living Clean and Sober."



My happiness journey started  with the realization that something was missing in my life. Through much  introspection, I determined that I needed to chase the dream of being a  nomadic sailor. I designed a plan to make  this happen, and took the steps in the plan. This is my dream, and I am  living it.
