(#1083) Ruth A (Cleveland, OH)
11/2-4/2012 in Painesville, OH  EVENT: Sunlight of the Spirit 2012  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 38 years, Ruth is sponsored by Beth G. of Brecksville, OH.

She quotes Mark Frost,

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming .... WOW what a ride."

Raised Jewish Orthodox, Ruth is on her third husband.

She talks about her insanity, drinking or not.

She heard a radio program quoting the alcoholic self-qualification questions.

She was delighted to answer all the question and find out she was not insane - just alcoholic. She went home and called her doctor who suggested AA. She called and came to her first meeting.

She tells a wonderful story of her spiritual experience in sobriety, another about a miracle of healing and another about finding a meeting in Jerusalem

Funny with numerous insights.
