One man, alone from Michigan living in the woods with nine others who were at first strangers and now are friends is battling sobriety.
He is 59 and has been sober for a total of nine months thus far. He said at first, he was shaking all the time, but that has since passed. Now, he is starting to feel what normal is supposed to feel like.
He came to Nashville after growing tired of his family, he told me while outside at a busy intersection. “They drank all the time and always argued,” he said. Alcohol can often lead to heightened arguments that are needless while sober.
“That's all drugs and alcohol do, they cut off your emotions in the end.” - Ringo Starr
