I have 42 years of Continuous Sobriety Today

Monday, February 25, 2019

By the grace of God and the fellowship of AA, I haven't had a drink or a drug in 42 years. I was 27 when I got sober, so I've been sober 15 years longer than I was alive when I first staggered into AA.

I would be dead by now if it weren't for AA. I can't list my blessings in one short blog, but the list is long. I have been able to watch my children grow up, marry, and have kids of their own. My first marriage broke up under the stress of addiction, but I met a wonderful man in AA, we have been married for nearly 38 years. He brought another son, who married and gave me more grandchildren.

It's been a life of blessings, all derived from sobriety, a true gift from God.
