More at Peace
I was raised by parents who got sober when I was young. By age 13, I had experimented with liquor and gotten into trouble at school, which led my father to take me along with him to AA meetings. He didn’t trust me at home. I kept coming to the meetings because of a beautiful girl my age who also attended. I didn’t work the Steps; neither did I recognize the depth of my disease nor understand just how low it would take me.
