Last November, I was in my 8th trip to Detox. While this blog will mainly about the steps I took to finally turn my life around, it will not be another "how A.A. saved my life" memoir. While the 12 steps certainly played a foundational and crucial role in my becoming recovered from alcohol, there are many other reasons as well. Some of them are: meditation, honesty, becoming a runner, (almost) vegetarianism, sleep, the love of my kids, incredible parents, functional medicine, a loving woman, Buddhism, the desire for my 40's to be better than my 30's, a selfless and rewarding job, some great friends, learning to deal with loss and grief, loving myself most of the time, and finally allowing myself to see things for what they really are.
