I am a father, a husband, and a son. I am also a recovered alcoholic. I am 46 yrs old and drank for 25 of those years. I come from 12 step, but I am open to all forms of recovery and well being. I take my recovery seriously, but don’t take myself seriously (remember rule #62!) Hospitals, jail cells, detox and
the asylum (oops, I mean treatment center) brought me to a place of surrender and with the help of others and a connection to the Creator, I have been lifted to a place far better than I could have imagined in my entire life. Carrying the message is my duty and responsibility, which is one of the reasons I started this blog. I am a garden variety alkie who expresses his opinions and experience here. I wish you the best in your recovery and/or your journey to a newer and shinier you.
