I’ll be setting up a Google Alert for “Paul Carr”…
I haven’t attended a single meeting—and yet I also haven’t had a drop of alcohol in almost 2½ years. By devising my own steps to sobriety, I’ve repaired relationships, gotten healthy, started a new career and set aside more character flaws than most people will ever have in a lifetime.
Two and a half years is an amazing accomplishment.
And sweet f*** all.
Almost everybody gets grandiose at one or two years:
Changes careers, goes on a fitness kick, meets their “soul mate,” concocts a grand unified theory of the universe.
Writes a book about how awesome they are now.
These books don’t usually get published.
And that’s a good thing.
