Sober Story - Michael Panken
As for my story - you know I got sober as a result of rage due to results of 2016 election - in general I was, yes unhappy and my emotions were out of control, but election put me over the top and at first was only planning to stop drinking for a little while, or until I could understand my emotions and get them in check- it wasn’t until 4 months at least, that I realized:
- I am an Alcoholic
- Alcohol itself was standing in the way of me getting truly honest with myself.
- The agony of facing myself, saving my marriage, or rather improving my marriage, was worth all the pain I would have to face. Now it’s two years in.
