Hi. My name is Violet* and I am an alcoholic. My sobriety date is 26.07.2009. I was twenty-nine when I got sober, for which I am indebted to Alcoholics Anonymous. I did 90 meetings in 90 days and worked through the twelve steps with a sponsor. I continue to attend three meetings a week, sponsor other women, and attempt to centre my life around the daily application of the steps.
