Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

Chris R

I washed my truck yesterday at the coin wash. I pulled aside to detail my truck (cuz I am an alcoholic and no one can wash my truck as good as I can, still working on the defects). This man in his 40s on a bicycle came riding along. The area was secluded, blocked off from the main street. He pulled out a paper bag, bottle top exposed, and began to medicate himself. He did not care that he was being seen by those cleaning thier cars. His priority was that drink, to get it down as fast as he could.

I am no different from this man, I know that need. I found something beautiful. I pray to God that he will venture to the rooms of the Fellowship and begin his journey some day.


XA Speakers has the latest experience, strength and hope from
Chris R. If you have the time, please listen to this passionate man. He is pure truth to offer.

today i am so grAAteful for my life and the continuos balance I am feeling lately.

Nothing wrong with detailing (maintaining) your vehicle. It's healthy and responsible.

I took my car to the $11,00 get the works deal today and it is the best it has looked in years. Of course I still need to do some more cleaning myself. Chris R. is something else. I do not think I have ever found a more excited speaker, is enthusiasm is contageous.
