Highlights from Paul
In episode 391, Paul asked listeners what they wanted to hear. Jeff L, with 5 years
alcohol-free (That’s what’s up!) said he wanted to hear from past guests. Great idea Jeff
as we are also curious as to where they are now.
Paul gives updates from 15 past guests.[20:30] Jen lives in Connecticut, has 2 kids (21 & 23), and just recently got a new job as a
counselor at a treatment center.
Jen had her 1st drink at 13 years old playing quarters, which resulted in her blacking out
and being sick for 3 days. She says that was a sign of what was to come and that
drinking was never fun for her. At 19 she started thinking she was an alcoholic and
became a daily drinker.
Jen was sober for 10 years (and then another 8 years). Those first 10 years were spent in
the rooms of AA and it took 7 years before she was able to get sober again.
After losing her husband suddenly to a heart attack in 2018 Jen started drinking. Again
Jen found herself going to treatment again (4 different treatment centers since her
husband died). Jen is now sober and back in the rooms of AA.
