Steps 8 and 9

Sober 39 years since 5/18/1973, she was once a nun who left the order only to climb into the morass of alcoholism.

She grew up among 9 siblings on a farm in Saskatchewan. One sibling, Dora, was retarded. She was always looking for love. She even married her psychiatrist.

Her last three weeks of drinking was on a park bench selling her body. She was ready to kill herself - not out of depression but because she was done. It felt as if a hand reached in and removed the obsession to drink. A man then came to her door at the hospital and gave her a way out.

She could barely read, and two gentlemen read the book to her and got her through step 7.

Her new sponsor (Cec C) made her hold off on her amends until she was rid of any resentments associated with the amends.
