Geographic Sobriety

IT was about three and a half years ago that I finally realized I was ready for Step One. AA opened a whole new way of life, pointing a pathway I could walk and be free of alcohol as a problem. My home group in Tacoma was great. I wanted what those people had. Sobriety came with a wondrous thrill. My job got better. They even let me back on the air with an ad-lib program. Something no sane radio station manager would have done a few months before.

Then something happened.
