Ed Graney in the San Diego Union tells the story of redemption for an ex-jock who leaves his life of binge drinking — get this — and also leaves his life as a well-paid star in television sportscasting to go for a high that comes from helping others… But Aaron Taylor’s story is relevant because his philosophy is sound no matter what your life story. He says, “It was all necessary to get where I am, which is exactly where I need to be.”
He wouldn’t change a thing now, not one hangover or failed relationship or the fights only a fierce temper and alcohol produce. Not the pain. Not the tears. Not one moment of a destructive cycle that allowed him to make what has been a life-altering exchange: Booze for benevolence.
