On this last day of the year, I want to reflect on just how far I have come. It is hard for me to believe that when I started drinking heavily in high school that today would be my last day as an alcoholic.
What’s even more amazing is that not only did I stop drinking alcohol, but also stopped smoking cigarettes and pot!
This blog post will take you through my journey from the beginning to where I am now.

These solutions solve them!
The principles in the Big Book have helped me to take responsibility for my problems and to solve them. If you are struggling, please consider these principles as a way to heal your life.
