Without a doubt I am a real alcoholic, not a problem drinker. Not a binge drinker, just your average top-up-your-morning-tea-with-vodka middle aged female alcoholic. Nothing special. Sober a number of years I have always wanted to pass it on but dont have anything concrete I can pass on. I suppose many here would class me as a dry drunk.. I dont feel like one. Im happy in my sobriety and the opinion of others has no real bearing on it. I have no cravings and havent for over 10 years. I never did a full 12 steps, in order, the way the BB says. I dont even own a Big Book. I go to a Christian based 12 step meeting every week but not AA itself. Obviously I can never sponsor anybody because despite my length of sobriety I have so little to offer. I have always felt sad about this since I was given the gift of sobriety and would love to pass it on. Today God showed me a way to do this. Not the way I ever thought it would happen. Today, for the first time, I think I made a real difference. I havent been so happy in years.
