Area 16 Archives

Sober since age 18, Lisa was the Saturday Night Speaker at the Assembly.

She introduces herself as an Alcoholic and an addict. She had been coming to the Assembly for 3 years.

Not very polished but sincere. Grew up in Savannah. Funny story about her last friend was a roach in the dorm bathroom she used to talk to.

She hit bottom at age 18 going to UGA biting and kicking a police officer in a blackout.

Got sober in Athens, GA. Then moved back to Savannah, back to Athens, got married, moved to Florida for a year then to Folkston, GA (due west of Savannah).

Got a male sponsor almost by accident. Strong finish after slow start.
