(#2264) Ginger K (Canton, GA)
7/7/2018 in Woodstock, GA  EVENT: HOW Place Saturday Night  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 14 years since 12/29/2003, Ginger is from the Hillside Group, Woodstock GA.

She drank alcoholically from the start at age 40 and lasted only 7 years.

"I was born an alcoholic and my alcoholic thinking was a burden in my life from as long back as I can remember."

Born in Huntsville, AL in a "Leave it to Beaver" family until age nine when they moved to Gadsden, AL and her dad started drinking.

One word to describe her is - determined: straight A's and cheerleader.

But she was also a worrier with an abundance of fear.

She intentionally got pregnant at 16 to get the boy she wanted but he was gone shortly after their daughter was born.

She quit school, went to work hard and her dad essentially raised her daughter in the beginning.

Enjoy "The rest of the story" - touching and powerful.
