Excerpt from Grapevine Magazine, November, 2006
The world will spin, but he just doesn’t drink
At two years [sober], I thought getting married would help me to feel better about myself. That only lasted 52 days. She ended up in a psychiatric ward and I sat on my couch with a loaded gun. But I didn’t drink.
At four years, I was let go from the company I had been at for 22 years. I didn’t drink.
At six years, my alcoholic girlfriend refused to move out of my house and got a restraining order. I moved out. She died of cancer two years later and I didn’t drink.
