So, it’s kind of hard to sum up addiction. Why do some folks get addicted to things… and others don’t?
I have no idea. For many years, when I first got sober, I asked myself, “Why can’t I drink? Why ME?”
Um, because I’m an alcoholic.
Yes, I know it’s circular reasoning, which, if you are a writing teacher is kind of a big no-no. But in this case? I’ll take it. I take “circular reasoning” and I’ll raise you a “Genetics are a part but there’s so much more” and leave it at that.
In the wise words of the epic rock legend, Avril Lavigne, “Why’d you have to make things so complicated?”
Because life. Life tends to be tricky.
So… I decided to share my recovery story with you…

And wine worked.
Until it didn’t.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story where I get sober. WITH PICTURES!
