Brett Lovins

Taking some time to talk about time. Time in sobriety and recovery and my musings at my 10 year milestone (May 28, 2023). I also share some stories from early recovery around the concept of time, including a recounting of my first AA meeting, where a woman shared something that might have saved my life by keeping me there. 10 years sober... I couldn't go 5 days sober... I was passed out drunk every night for years. The progressive nature of the disease made those last years very difficult. Trying desperately to moderate while simultaneously accelerating. A terrible recipe.
