Excerpts from "What to Put in Your Head Now that the Alcohol is Out"

"Courage does not always roar.  Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow.""     Mary Anne Radamacher
We aren't people who would label ourselves as courageous, but we are.  Beating an enemy with the size, strength and tenacity of alcohol takes a large measure of bravery and dedication, and that's what courage is.  We have kept going, and we keep going, through daily challenges that would test the strength of our most favored heroes -- battles both external and internal.  We face our fears, once day at a time.
