Glenn Jorgenson, who is featured in the book "It's Great To Be Alive," is a recovering alcoholic.

"It's hard for people to understand," Glenn tells me.  "It is a very difficult thing to go through.  The withdrawal from alcohol and prescription drugs is especially tough to go deal with...It took quite a while to come back to be physically, mentally, and emotionally restored.  But, with my supportive family, we got right with it.  I am really convinced that the Good Lord removed the need for it from me.

Aside from his family, Glenn says his other life saver was Alcoholics Anonymous!

Glenn Jorgenson is my featured guest on this week's "I Love Life" program airing daily at 12:50 p.m. on KXRB.
