Next question;

9.  Has the fear of people left you?

It’s intensity has decreased.  During my drinking, I can remember having difficulty getting outside of the apartment.  I have always had difficulty connecting with others, but when I began to nurture my pathological relationship with alcohol, familiarity and closeness with others brought accountability I did not desire.  But, through the program, I have been able to connect with others in a way I never have.  I would say that it is even closer than the camaraderie I felt from being in the military, because there is no overwhelming sense of being judged.  I am understood on some very basic levels.

The fear of people has left me, most of the time.  Being annoyed with people is something I am still working on.  Progress prior to perfection, I guess.
