Dear Grapevine

In my pocket

I can't explain what it is, but ever since I started keeping Grapevines in my pocket a few days ago, I have been feeling so much better. It's like a small daily reminder, which does miracles. I am a soldier deployed in Afghanistan since February. There are no meetings here and I know no other sober alcoholics. I pull out my Grapevine while in the latrine, on guard duty or when stuck in a bunker. Thank you for the wonderful service and for putting meetings in print for alkies everywhere and anywhere across the globe who can't make it to meetings.
