(#1266) Deborah A (Durham, NC)
7/15/2011 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 36th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 27 years since 4/4/1983, Deborah grew up with an alcoholic dad and sister. She never intended to become "the wreck of a person I became."

Deborah got sober but her sister tried but could not.

Deborah tried for a while not to drink but then at 11 decided she was smarter than her dad and sister and could probably drink.

She lasted until she was 15.

"I don't think I could have survived much beyond that age."
