Alcohol and being teetotal


“Between 15 and 25 I became dependent on alcohol and drugs, so joined Alcoholics Anonymous in 1976 and have never touched alcohol since, over 30 years of sobriety. So my gay life has all been totally sober. Basically I remember it as it was, and not as other people told me. Unfortunately I was never able to socialise and have a drink in a gay venue, though I’ve owned many of them. I’ve always supplied alcohol, sometimes at crazy rates, because I believe people who can enjoy a drink, should enjoy a drink and have a lovely time. I’m still involved in Alcoholics Anonymous, which I attend twice a week.”
