June 2011: Home Sweet Sewer
Could his bottom have gotten any lower?
"In late January 2006, I moved into a sewer hole. Yes, I had finally arrived!"
After years of relapses and homelessness, my bottom came up and slammed me. This, I hope, was to be my last physical bottom due to my alcoholism.
I came to my home group in November of 2005 for the coffee and doughnuts, the only food I was getting at the time. Unfortunately, I just was not ready yet for recovery. Either I was going down or a bottom was coming up. Turned out, I was going down. In late January 2006, I moved into a sewer hole. Yes, I had finally arrived!
