(This member, after spending years in another 12 Step program found himself in a situation that he could not manage. He found a new perspective on the 12 steps through the Gam-Anon program.)
Through the program of Gam-Anon sponsorship and the grace of god I have found a new way of life. I have been a member of Gam-Anon in good standing since January 2007.
I was the youngest of 4 children. In school I did not feel like I fit in. The little acceptance I did get was in sports. I was co-captain of the wrestling team and lettered in football. I felt like I was not good enough just the way I was. Then I found alcohol. When I drank I became the person I wanted to be. I didn’t let every little thing bother me, I could relax, I laughed, I was funny, and people seemed to like me. But mostly that spinning feeling in my head stopped. I know this is not a meeting of alcoholics anonymous, just bare with me, it is relevant to my gam anon story.
