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.

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.
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.
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.
