Pop goes the Weasel

Postby BaddaBingBamBoom » Mon Mar 21, 2011 8:19 pm

Hi All;

My sober date is Jan. 7, 2000. Prior to that I lived in a cardboard box for the last 17 years. I was 49 when God decided I should get sober. I never had the desire to stop drinking. I had nothing to gain at the time: no family, no friends, no job skills, I never really worked so there was nothing I could see.

God took the desire to drink from me and blessed me with the desire to learn how to live in this world as a productive useful person and to be of maximum service to others.

I came into A.A. and got a sponsor. I began to listen at meetings, went through the steps and my life gets better one day at a time. I am currently an honors student at the age of 54 at a community college, I have a place to live, and have a driver's liscence for the first time in 30 years. I sponsor others and move forward one day at a time. As my sponsor says, I just keep showing up.

Thanks for listening;
