Bill D. was 39 years old when he conceded that alcohol was making his life unmanageable. That was a hard admission but since then, life has been better; not always easy, but better.
He sought help through twelve-step groups and an addiction-specialist counselor. The counselor first brought up the subject of ADHD. Since then, he has been on a journey of sobriety and of understanding how his attention deficit has affected his life.
He has found that there are aspects of ADHD and addictions that overlap quite a bit, both in the ways they influenced him when he was ignorant of them, and in the process of acceptance. It's amazing what a difference it makes to know about ADHD and to face it
Bill is a husband and father of two. He is a lawyer, a writer, and a guitar player.
