Tried AA since Insurance told Me I had to.

(Syr, NY)

that was years ago. Parents and grandparents died within 5 wks. Turned to drinking.Starting drinking a LOT. still kept up with work kids, etc. but was thrown into rehab by a sister. Told if i didnt say i was an alcoholic my insurance wouldnt cover my stay. mandated AA meetings. Tried hard to adhere to rules although an atheist. missed work to attend meetings. five years later have lost my house and moved in with son. drinking is increasing to the point where i can use someone to talk to. always working and no reliable vehicle. any input would be most appreciated. dont need any creeps./
