(#287) Ilene W (Los Angeles, CA)
April 1996 in Edisto Beach, SC  EVENT: 8th Edisto Roundup  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 21 years since 3/3/1975, Ilene is a lively and funny. She got sober at 25. At 40 she got a tattoo; at 45 dyed her hair blue; is scared to think what she will do when she turns 50. She has a tenuous relationship with reality. The Mexican Day of the Dead is her favorite holiday. For her the way to stop drinking is to stop drinking. The way to stay stopped is to work the steps. She spends a good part of her talk on life after entering AA.
