I drank for twenty years. Sometimes it worked, but too many times, I drank past my tolerance level and woke up shivering on some bathroom floor. It's been 14 years since my last drink. I wrote the content of this book while participating in a recovery meeting. It's not remarkable that I got sober, but I couldn't have done it without help. I'm hoping that my experiences as a sober non-believer can be of help to anyone out there who is sick and tired of being sick and tired.
My Name is Lillian and I’m an Alcoholic (and an Atheist) is about sobriety from a secular perspective. In a series of short, fun, “warts and all” essays, Lillian describes how she uses the tools of AA without dependence on God or a Higher Power. Anyone looking for help, but uncomfortable with AA’s use of Judeo-Christian spirituality will find a refreshing take on sobriety.
