11/2-4/2012 in Painesville, OH  EVENT: Sunlight of the Spirit 2012  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 24 years since 5/11/1988, she never felt connected the way she feels today. She has learned even how to have "men friends".

"The women in my life taught me how to be honest and the women in my life taught me how to grow up and the women in my life taught me how to be a woman."

"When I was drinking I was one of the guys."

When she first came in, she hung out with the guy because, "I can work the guys."

At age 5 she was obsessed with licking ashtrays.

"They're salty. I never ate dirt and some of you ate dirt."

Her first meeting of AA was at the age of 15 in 1973.

"And I was all washed up at the age of 15."
