About the Book

This is a story of a recovering alcoholic who wants to share her experiences with you. At times what is written in this book is deadly serious and, at the same time, funny. You’ll laugh out loud and you might shed a tear or two. If you are an alcoholic you will recognize yourself in these pages. You will get the support and education you need to stop drinking and maintain a sober lifestyle. If you know or suspect someone you love is an alcoholic this book will be valuable to you as well. The author gives you information that helped her get sober and stay sober for over 37 years. The author began drinking at the tender age of 9. She had one drink and realized she liked the taste of alcohol. Even at that young age, she managed to get her hands on booze. During her teen years, the drinking became worse. She lost a 4-year scholarship when she decided drinking was more important than not drinking when she played on the high school baseball team. The drinking only got worse after that until she hit her ‘rock bottom’ moment and resolved to begin ‘Sobriety’.
