Congrats Chuck on an amazing achievement. You are an inspiration. I too was an "AAer". I just never could make the commitment to stick to it. I had my 3 year chip about 5 years ago. Then binged. It just wasn't my thing. I know..."you mean getting drunk is?"...lol. I really don't have the answer for that one....YET..but I'm still looking. I just felt that sitting in meetings. hearing and telling the same story made me feel like even acknowledging the fact that I was an alcoholic just drove me crazy with the cravings. Anyways, congrats on YOUR story and life....I hope I can find the same in these corridors.
