Web Exclusive: Service Changed Her Life
She once never left her house. Now she enjoys helping AA everywhere she can.
"My life has changed and expanded beyond anything I could ever have imagined."
At the end of my drinking, my world pretty much consisted of my bed and the kitchen table. Sure, I ventured out into that frightening world beyond my door—even made it to work many days—but usually only by promising myself a “reward” later if I managed to make it through another day. I staggered into Alcoholics Anonymous one day, not intending to stay or even wanting to get sober. This was simply the last stop before suicide, but at least then I would know I had tried everything else.
