July 2012: Bloom Where I'm Planted

With AA and God, she never has to serve time alone

Alcoholism doesn’t stop when you are locked up, and neither should recovery. On June 20, 2009, I made a new start to my life: I got sober and willing to do anything to stay that way.

I started working with my sponsor, actually calling in daily, going through the Big Book and the Steps, and following her directions, instead of doing things my way. What a change from when I first tried to get sober in 2008.
