Quitters’ Ball

warning: dry humor

Last week, I shared with my recovery group that I’d published a story about quitting alcohol on a website called Medium.

“Is that like Facebook?”

“Well it’s on the internet.”

“Were you apprehensive?”


“Are you glad you did it?”


To everyone who took time to read it and to those who shared messages of support, strength and solidarity, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
