I Have Hope Today -- Recovering from alcoholism
"The most difficult thing I have ever had to do is follow the guidance I prayed for." -- Albert Schweitzer Unfortunately, Jerry passed away on November 2nd due to complications one day after quintuple bypass open heart surgery.  But he remarked that he had a good life.  His AA teachings helped him to achieve that good life.  The name of the web site, IHaveHopeToday.com, was chosen because before Jerry went into surgery, he found comfort in reading that day's entry in an AA book, which was based on the concept of 'hope.' He said to his family, "This is good. It says 'I have hope.’" Along with the web site, his family, Judy, Davette, and Lynne, chose to donate AA books to the libraries of jails (in Price, Washington, Douglas, Lincoln, Sawyer, Ashland, Milwaukee, Fond du Lac, Dodge, & Winnebago Counties, plus the Flambeau Correctional Center), because Jerry would sometimes work with social workers and inmates to get the inmate on an AA program. He knew that many people chose to sober up while they were in jail drying out. He read his AA books each day and often reminded himself to take "one day at a time." Jerry would often say that an alcoholic cannot just quit drinking; that person also needs to change his or her mind set, and AA & the AA books can help a person do just that. "If even one person is helped by visiting this web site or reading the books we have donated, we will be pleased, and I know my dad would be, too," Lynne added. Approximately 7.4% of Americans are alcoholics, and about ½ of all Americans (such as family and friends of the alcoholic) are affected by the disease.
