I was born in 56 and I was reborn at 56! Hi I am Janis and I am an alcoholic. I have been sober now for 1 year after 40 years of drinking. This lead to a deep depression that I could not get out of, but by the grace of God I found AA and He has lifted that obsession to drink and black out. I should have died the day I? fell down the basement stairs onto the concrete floor and hit my head, but God chose to keep me alive and now I have a brand new life and a brand new way of thinking and God is now using me to help other alcoholics.
