I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.

At 29 I was divorced, a habitual drunkard. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Similar to the spokes of a wheel, there is no main factor that made me decide to stop, but many. The twelfth step, ‘Love of one’s self and fellow man’. Rebuilding your self-esteem, what one thinks of oneself, is so important. I have not lost the feeling, pray GOD I never do, I’m alive and sober today.
