Stuart talks about the effects of alcoholism on his life and the benefits of recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous. His dad left the family early and his family was poor, so he felt these effects during his early schooling. Stuart formed friendships with kids in similar positions and started drinking around 16 years old and using marijuana when he was about 18. Money was an ongoing problem though, even when he had a successful business as his alcoholism progressed. Stuart found help with his alcoholism through Alcoholics Anonymous and his life improved, but his money management was still a out of control. A friend recommended Debtors Anonymous and Stuart found at last he understood why money couldn’t stick to his fingers.
Unsurprisingly, over 20 years sobriety, Stuart’s life, work, and relationships improved.
