Grapevine : February 2011
WHEN I first came into AA, I was openly gay, and had been for many years. I was troubled, however, by my behavior in rela- tionships. My drink- ing had created many problems for me. At age 32, I had already been in two long-term relationships that ended badly due to alcohol and drugs (my use and theirs.) At about five months sober, I was having a bad day. I was feel- ing restless, irritable and discon- tent. I was especially unhappy over the state of my relationships and sexuality, and I was feeling differ- ent than, and less than, others. I also wanted to stay sober no mat- ter what. Dating and sex revolved around bars and drinking. I knew that if I were to drink, I would not be able to stop again.
