If you have spent any time on my blog here, you would know that I am a recovering “alcoholic.” At least, today I am… AA is ‘Alcoholics Anonymous;’ yet I am about as ‘anonymous’ as Coca Cola! I appreciate and respect the ‘anonymous’ facet of AA, but I am not all that hung up with it. Maybe had I known of someone in AA when I was in “my main act” I wouldn’t have had to suffer as much as I did? Don’t know, won’t know. But if you happen upon this thread, and want “to ask questions,” I will respect your anonymity.
I wrote a series of articles for our local AA publication in early sobriety. It helped me – to put certain things down in writing. Tend not to lie to myself when I write. It’s just too hard! LOL! I am now going to include them in my blog, as they represent an integral part of me. I don’t “dwell” on recovery, but it is never far from my conscious.
One of my “motivators” for writing, is to give some insight for my grand kids into who this guy really was – beyond the surface. This thread will just represent another facet – that’s all… Besides, I have hung on to these articles, and really want to get rid of them now…
So, not having any “ado’s,” I’ll begin here….
