Accepting Myself

I went to the AA meeting, but I felt out of place. I couldn’t “come out” in prison. I didn’t want people to judge me. I didn’t trust anyone.

I am currently locked up in prison in Virginia. Recently, I was invited to attend an AA meeting in here on Monday nights. So I signed up. At first, I didn’t feel like I was an alcoholic, even though I was told I have a drinking problem. I mean, I only drank five days out of the week. How could I possibly be that much of a drunk?
