Our son, was arrested first in 2008 for DWI and a second time in 2009 for possession and sale of Ecstacy. As we look back, both my husband and I realize we should have recognized all of the many warning signs… signs like the ones listed on the home page of this website. But we didn’t. We were blind and in denial.
Thankfully, our son found AA and is now celebrating monthly milestones of “clean and sober”. The tenets of AA are worthwhile lessons for any and all of us; they are watchwords for successful living. The most powerful lesson, perhaps, is the lesson of “giving back”; he has clearly learned that his sponsorship of others like him, is his key to his staying clean and sober.
