October 2012: High Bottom

I am what is sometimes referred to as a “high-bottom” drunk. I was 23 years old when I came voluntarily to Alcoholics Anonymous. Prior to that I had never gone to treatment or gotten into any trouble with the law.

I took my first drink when I was about 16 and kept drinking pretty regularly throughout the rest of high school. When I went to college, I drank even more.
