    Took me back to my first months of sobriety. I went to AA three times a week for six months. I ate, slept, and breathed info about alcoholism. AA and I really didn't get along, but they were there for me when I needed them.

    Over time my obsession with my disease became less and less important as I moved beyond worrying about drinking. I knew that it was within me to just not do it and so I don't. I rarely think about it now, it's a non-issue for me. I don't drink alcohol but can put a hurt on some iced tea.

    For Matt, your day will come. Trust me,  stay sober and one day you will wake up and realize that you are free.
