Alcoholism Recovery Program

The problem with not drinking is you’re sober ALL the time.

When I joined A.A., my 12-year-old daughter said she’d never seen me drunk. I told her she’d never seen me sober.

At my first meeting, I pulled out my flask and had a few hits from it. I was flabbergasted that no one else was drinking in a meeting full of alcoholics.

We’re loaded with imperfection, but we’re headed in the right direction.

I hit a bottom in sobriety that was worse than the one I came in on.

When I made my amends, I was sure people would be shocked to learn I was an alcoholic. No one was.

I have a 100% survival rate trusting in God.
