Ann got sober 1/3/1995. Her alcoholic mother had seven children from five husbands. Ann married a soldier at 17 to leave her chaotic home. She quit high school to take care of her sisters because her mother had cancer she refused to treat. Ann began to drink but swore she would never drink like her mother.

Ann left that marriage and moved to Hawaii got a cosmetology degree and eventually open her own successful salon. She joined Al-anon years before AA, had many failed relationships with alcoholic men, lost the salon when all the staff left at once. She moved with her two children to a one bedroom apartment in a crack neighborhood.

On Christmas 1994 she did what she swore she would never do and finally came into AA. AA strong sponsorship taught her how to behave appropriately. One more failed marriage while sober but now she finally has a real relationship, a partnership, with her current husband.
