(#2769) Heather W (Blue Ridge, GA)
5/28/2021 in Woodstock, GA  EVENT: Sober @ 6 Monthly Birthday Meeting  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 5 years, she had two sons, Dustin, and Austin, with her first husband.

She always wanted to be a good mother, but alcohol kept coming back into her life.

At age 23 on January 6, 1994, she started coming to AA. Her first meeting was at the HOW Place where this talk was recorded.

She tried the marijuana maintenance program for some months until she found out we do not do that either.

Her husband did not want anything to do with her after she started in recovery and later was arrested for armed robbery.

She had prayed for God to help him but that is not what she had in mind.

She did not know the prayers or the Steps, but she knew she needed what the people in AA had.

She has had years of sobriety mixed with years of darkness and tragedies no mother would want to face.

But looking back she realizes that going back out was unnecessary though at the time it did not feel that way.

Great message for us all.

Thank you, Heather.
