With lots of love

When a member loses his sight,
what does his home group do?

I had my first taste of alcohol when I was 13 years old. At 15, I was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that would slowly take my vision. When the doctors gave me my diagnosis, they told me I would be blind by the time I was 30. This was the beginning of my years of alcoholism. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was already acting alcoholically. I didn’t drink every day, but every day I couldn’t wait until the next time I’d get a chance to drink again.
