What it was like?
My drunk a lot goes back 42 years from the day I was born May 20, 1958 until present time . What it was like being a slave of king alcohol I was A liar a cheat and a thief and character assassinated whomever whatever however I could to get what I want to drunk and sober .
I looked in the mirror and I saw that I was the problem after 1 year of not drinking or using drugs and went to an AA meeting and stayed around for five years then relapsed for six years . I failed to grow spiritually and became a user again of people places things drugs and alcohol . I lost nearly all that I loved and held so dearly so I went back to Alcoholics Anonymous .
