Today I am proud to announce that I am 10 months sober! When I stumbled through the doors of AA way back on April 12/07 I wasn't a pretty sight to see. I was slowly dieing because of the way I had abused alcohol for the past 25 years. Today I am very grateful to be enjoying life sober and have the love and support from my wife and 3 children whom I put through a living hell on earth during all those drinking years. I have a great sponsor who has helped me with the steps of the recovery program, a great home AA group, and most of all a God of my understanding whom is my Higher Power to lead the way. The DS support group, with its many friends I have come to know, also play an important part in my sobriety. As they say in AA...keep coming back and sooner or later the miracle will happen for you. I didn't believe in miracles until I got sober, but I do now because.....I am one! BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD...o.d.a.a.t.
