(#1282) Nancy F (Acworth, GA)
7/27/2016 in Acworth, GA  EVENT: Sobrinity Quarterly Speaker  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 28 years, Nancy was born and raised in Moline, IL. Her second sponsor, Margaret, gave her the moniker "The Traveling Alcoholic".

Nancy has been married three times and has six children. She met two of her husbands in bars and alcohol and drugs were a large part of each relationship.

She left her first husband with the children, an amends she is still making today.

Nancy came into AA the first time in 1982 and stayed for 5 months.

In 1986 she began to correspond with an inmate, Albert, in prison and married him while he was still confined.

After 6 years away from the program she came back on 1/2/1988 with the help of Albert and has been sober ever since through many trials and tribulations.

Albert attended meetings behind bars. He did not stay clean and sober on the outside and died in 1994 on the streets a little over a year after getting out.
