My mother died. She died in her sleep at home in her own bed. There were no hospitals, operations or horrible drawn out illness. I am grateful for that. I am 49 next birthday and she was 85. Neither of us has been short changed. It is the circle of life. I went to her funeral stinking of Chanel No 5 not vodka. My brother fell to bits and I didnt.I was polite to everyone who was kind enough to come and remember her and behaved like a human being. Without the 12 steps and being sober it wouldnt have been like that at all- it doesnt bear thinking about. Never is the answer in a bottle, never was, never will be.I believe in God, and he comes to us through people as he has to me.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
