Trains, Dogs & Drums

A nice marriage, a beautiful new three bedroom house and a good sober life. Why was he so annoyed?

At five years sober, I met the woman who would later become my wife. She was struggling to get sober. Our relationship began as Twelfth Step work. I gave her a Big Book and she started attending many AA meetings, got a sponsor and got busy with the program. She stuck to her guns and now has 27 years of sobriety.
