Now that you are on the recovery road, what else are you doing toward improving your overall health?

I quit drinking in 1997.

I quit smoking in 1999.

I began to go for physicals.

I found that I was prone to cancer...4 times in sobriety, along with a liver transplant.

None of those would have been diagnosed, much less treated, if I had been drinking.

I am still alive, thanks to the program of AA that showed me how to live sober and a God that I never knew before that gave me time to see how great living sober truly is.
