Cal, we all love a drink, but nobody likes a drunk. You’d drink if you were me, I can have one, you can have wine with a meal, it’s your round, one for the road, one more for the road. Ever said any of that? Cal did. Loads. Cal completed drinking and it wasn’t the glorious victory we all hoped for. It was no podium finish – it was a gutter ball. Join Cal Halbert on his discovery and acceptance of being an alcoholic. How it led to that, what happened and how he got better.
