Joe Walsh's Story of Recovery
I got sober because of a fellowship of men and women who were sober alcoholics. That’s how I got sober. After a couple of years, I talked about [my sobriety] with other alcoholics and tried to help them. The only person who can get somebody else sober is somebody who’s been there and done that.
I realized that I do more good at showing people that there’s life after addiction. So I decided it’s okay to go public because everybody knew anyway, and if I save one life showing that there’s life after addiction I feel good about it. I believe that’s part of why I lived.
