I think I was psychologically dependent on booze before I even had my first drink. I wanted alcohol in the way that people want acceptance. In the end it defined me. Not always in a good way. I wrestled with these things more and more – for 36 years in fact, until one day it dawned on me that I had had enough. The thought of sobriety appeared as a release. My memoir will help those who are ready to contemplate a brand new life with absolute joy in their heart.
