Go, Me






My name is Shay and I'm an alcoholic. One drink is too many and a thousand are not enough. Through AA and reliance upon my Higher Power, I have stayed sober. One minute at a time. One hour at a time. One day at a time.






Today (Sept. 29) marks 24 years of continuous sobriety for me. I am grateful for the grace and the gift I've been given.
