Happy New You! A Chapter from the book Do Tell!

In honor of the new year, I’d like to share with you a chapter I wrote for the book Do Tell! Stories by Atheists and Agnostics in AA.

The Chapter is titled A New Man, and here is an excerpt:

Coming to: What happened? Where am I? Who am I? Most alcoholics are familiar with this feeling: an abyss of loss and then a desperate search for the events that led to this point. Sometimes there’s nothing, sometimes there’s a flash – of momentarily seeing, understanding something, but that disappears in a flash, too. And then sometimes – if you’re as determined as I’ve always been – you will chase the flash that might, eventually, lead you to your awakening, a new coming to; a reality where you can finally function without having to compromise your true self.

Read the remainder of the story here.


This is a chapter from the book: Do Tell! Stories by Atheists and Agnostics in AA.
