April 2021 | Fun in Sobriety


How on earth would she ever have fun again without alcohol? Little did she know her life was just taking off

I had just turned 23 when I found myself walking into my very first meeting of AA. I was lost, scared and emotionally and spiritually bankrupt. I often describe my life prior to entering the rooms of AA as directionless. I had no idea who I was, what I liked, where I was going. And I definitely didn’t know how I would have fun without alcohol. I didn’t know that was even possible. I was convinced that the “good times” were over.
