For this I am Responsible!

I know I am breaking my anonymity in writing this memoir and did not make this decision lightly.  I have started and stopped this project for more than 10 years.  Here is why I undertook this challenge.

In 1997 I was in the throes of this disease and could not stop drinking.  On the way to our vacation home I purchased a book, and what the author described about herself and about alcoholism saved my life.  I have no delusions of saving anyone.

However, if I can shed more light on the disease of alcoholism, I believe for that I am responsible.  As an active alcoholic I rarely finished anything I started that was worthwhile.  When it got tough, I drank and then I quit.  I also rarely took ownership for my actions.  My intention, therefore, is to complete this task and own it.  My name attached to this book will let me know I have succeeded on both counts.
