Buzzing Emotional Mess

Andrew is another member of the “Double Winners” – people who achieved sobriety through both Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. He comes from a divorce family, and was shuffled between both parents who made their dislike for one another very apparent to the children. Andrew notes his father is a psychiatrist. He blames that for his inability to feel comfortable among peers, unless he was drinking. By his own account, he was a “buzzing, emotional mess.” At age 15, Andrew’s drinking had lead drug use, dropping out of school, getting kicked out the house and getting in trouble with the law.
