Is That All There Is?
Forty years sober as of October 14, 2003! Four decades of sobriety and what have I got to show for it? Shouldn't I be president of something? Or at least a billionaire? Sure, I haven't attempted suicide or committed a felony since my first AA meeting on that rainy Monday in 1963, but is that all there is? Just because I now seem to experience an astonishing sense of peace on a daily basis, did I quit drinking just for this?
