This is the story of Sara and her journey into the dark disease of alcoholism. A seemingly normal young woman, who very nearly drinks herself to death, and the path she walks to reach the place where she finally wants to get well. The author takes us on a trip into the thinking and experiences that create the perfect storm where situations continue to contribute to the, nearly always, fatal illness and how her loved ones fight to save her life. From Randalls own personal experiences comes her conviction that hope is something we should never lose when dealing with this disease because not everyone has to die from it. Against seemingly impossible odds of loss, death, grief, and finally, tough love, she shows us the miracle of sobriety. There is evidence today that alcoholism is created by a combination of several factors such as the predisposition to drink to change the way we feel and the need to try to feel more normal because of excessive nervousness, stress, or feelings of low self-esteem and self-worth are the contributing emotional factors while the physiological addiction that comes from drinking large amounts of alcohol every day until that line is crossed happens over a period of time and can be just as lethal when the liver, kidneys, pancreas, or eventually, the brain fails. And then there is also the genetic factor. No matter the combination of factors involved, we must acknowledge that we are living in the age of an alcoholic-and-drug addiction epidemic, but as long as there is life, there is hope, and this is Saras story; a story of struggles and life experiences that seemingly might cause her to lose all hope and desire to get well, and a learning experience for anyone who wants to know more about dealing with this disease and how to recover.
