Kind, Benevolent, Caring

My life then could not have been described as safe and secure, caring and kind, or filled with unconditional love and joy. I found all that when I got to AA.

I started attending AA meetings at age 44 while I was in a treatment center. Until that time, I was self-reliant to a fault. I was at the top of my career and had all the trappings of success. I recoiled at the thought or mention of surrender and stayed that way until I was 10 years sober. That’s when John became my sponsor.
