She went to church, got good grades, was popular and funny but…her Mom was a “full blown alcoholic” and her Dad had an anger management problem.  Ann would say her family lived lives of “quiet desperation”.  She was always the first to start drinking and the last to stop.  She had her first “honest” drunk at 14.  Her management of her drinking during her first pregnancy brought up feelings that funneled her into Adult Children of Alcoholics groups.  They helped her but the drinking caught up some years later and she found AA.  After a lengthy AA vacation and an emotional nosedive she found her way back to serenity.
