"I can't make it," Wanda said after our morning AA meeting. "I fear tonight I will end up drunk."
"If I can go this long then anyone can stay sober," I told her as we walked to our cars hoping it would help.
It is times likes these in AA that you have to reach out for support and help. We've all been there and done that. I can't count on both hands how many times and opportunities I've had to get drunk. The program of AA is like a complete reprogramming of a persons personality and thoughts. One could argue it is a cult.
After I made sure Wanda was okay, I was bursting at the seams to find out about my new computer.
"We ordered it," Dad said over the phone. "Should be here in a few days."
I was elated. I could never afford such a nice computer without the help of my father. I can't wait to get it home, un-box it, and set everything up. I will be nice to finally have a reliable computer for a change.
