When I was a young woman, and more physically suited to this active life, I was not interested. At 4:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings, I would still be sitting in the bar. I would drive home as the sun came up, after the bar closed. In Chicago, the bars didn't close until 5 a.m. on the weekends, and I made full use of that time! If I made some miscalculation of drink or food combinations and ended up vomiting, I would count that as a plus - I would lose weight!
It is amazing what God can do! It seems hardly possible that I am the same woman who sat in the bars until the sun rose, but oh, I do remember! God help me if I should forget.
I am an alcoholic, sober by the Grace of God - today.
