Life After Drunk: Writing My Way Sober
If you’ve been part of a recovery program, these are the words—One Day at a Time—that pull you out of early sobriety’s swamp of panic, shame, and despair, the muck that sucks at your ankles and guts, that buries your heart so that you can’t feel anything but the next drink, the next drunk, the next drowning. You ruminate on the past and imagine future failure. How will you stay sober and not need the next first drink and the one after that and after that? And how might narrative writing, telling your story, to yourself and others help? Kerry Neville will talk about how writing about recovery, for herself and for publication, helps her stay the path.
