They say around Alcoholics Anonymous that you can’t get sober for anyone but yourself and I understand the point. Again, it wasn’t until I was dropped to my knees in desperation that I was finally to beg God for help. That’s when the program started to work. However my two sons, Aidan and Brody, were very significant motivations for my sobriety. During my first year every time I’d earn a new chip Aidan would get my previous month’s chip. Once I finally was sober and actively working AA I was never going to put myself in a position to have to explain to my sons that I was starting over.
