I am a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. Sober, by the Grace of God, since July 24, 1984.

A woman was asked by a co-worker, "What is it like to be a recovering alcoholic?" The co-worker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. and then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."
