What happens after you give up drinking?
This week I was invited to spend time with several women who, combined, have 35 years of sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Although I am not an alcoholic and seldom drink, I found their stories inspiring.
Many said they had a fear of drinking again; and if that happened, they would feel worse than being a loser.
Others said they didn’t feel they would live long if they drank again; that if they used a car, they would “drink, drive and kill.” One person told a story of someone they met in AA who had come to terms in sobriety
