Jorma Kaukonen recovery date: December 1, 1996
"My sobriety date is Dec. 1, 1996. I was 55 years old when I got sober. It is not necessary to wait more than half your lifetime to experience true freedom … but it was for me. I have been asked more than once what sobriety means to me, and the answer is always, 'Everything!' On those rare occasions I take time to make a gratitude list, right at the top of the list is the fact that neither of my kids have seen me drink or use!"
