Here is my story. In 2008, following my wife's death from cancer, I began to drink heavily. A year later I received a DUI. I spent the following two years in a court program called Sobriety Court. It was an awesome experience because of the attitude I had going in. I knew I had a problem and accepted everything the court asked of me as appropriate and reasonable. I did not complain, but complied. At the end of the two years, when I graduated from the program, I was a different person and I remain a different person. I am alcohol free and my life has a spiritual (not religious) base.

Ann, yours is the first answer and I'm already prepared to choose Best Answer. Grand children. How nice that must be. I have two sons who are really dragging their feet on the subject. I can tell you adore them. They will never forget these days
Yes I hope they have good memories of me. My 12 year old granddaughter and I are really close; it's only now that I've had the time to devote much more of it to them, so I'm pleased for her too (my hub on Paris was the result of a day just for us).
Awesome. I'll take a look at it.
liesl5858,That is a very powerful story. Might I suggest you think about writing a hub that describes some of the steps you took that others might find helpful? Thanks for sharing that with us here.
Liesl: Shows tremendous grit. I admire you. Assuming that you apply this to the spiritual life, then you should be sailing.
Yes! Do write a hub about your story.
So glad you decided to live, and found a better, less-complicated life.
Gracie, those are difficult experiences, but sometimes those are the ones that make us stronger and teach us much needed lessons. At least that has been my experience.
