Sitting in a bar one morning, she accepted that she was an alcoholic
I was sitting in the bar at 11 a.m. I was no longer able to wait until noon to have a drink. I was desperately trying to drown my thoughts and at the same time trying to remember the evening before.
I was reading a book about spirituality and drinking. Drinking and desperately searching for answers. Finally I said to myself, "God, I can't do this anymore, I give up." Immediately the thought came to me to go to an AA meeting.
I got up and left that bar at two in the afternoon and that was the last drink I ever had.
