Sobriety at Sea
After my last and biggest encounter with the law, I decided it was time to do something about my drinking problem. Years earlier, I had wondered if I had an alcohol problem, had tried to quit many times, but had never lasted very long. I would reason that it wasn't the alcohol but a run of bad luck. It took a big event, a major screw-up on my part, for me to finally realize I had a problem. I checked myself into a treatment center to get a foundation for my sobriety. While in treatment I went to meetings, worked the first three Steps, and got a good start on the entire AA program.
