(#860) Julia S (Lafayette, LA)
8/21/2011 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 34th Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Julia got sober in Georgia 26 years before this talk on 1/10/1985. She has been living in Lafayette since November 1999.

Soft spoken at first with a powerful story, it becomes evident, just by her great laugh, that she led a wild life before and after coming into the program.

Neither of her parents were alcoholic though her dad owned a liquor store in the metro Atlanta area. There is alcoholism in years previous and rampant suicide in the family - including her father three weeks before her 2nd birthday. Her mother had a giant brain tumor while Julie as a child was sleeping with her. Fear was an every consuming presence in Julia's life.
