Follow the life of Bob Nylund as he struggles with his addiction to alcohol for nearly 40 years before finally finding sobriety 35 years ago and counting. Bob describes his escapades as a young man, through his service in the Navy Seabees and beyond in a series of amusing tales, always with the dark cloud of alcohol abuse hanging overhead. By the young age of 20 Bob was hooked on golf and alcohol, thanks to a job at a country club and the availability of free drinks. Bob's issues with alcohol grew as did, unbelievably, his career and family. Through the hardships of accidents, illnesses and the tragic loss of a young daughter, Bob maintained his grip on alcohol. There were many years of binges, blackouts, detox and treatment centers. It took his daughter's wedding day ultimatum to help him decide he'd had enough. Bob finally found God and let go, letting Him, the LAST treatment center, several care groups and very good, caring friends help him to find sobriety and hold onto it tightly. So what about the golf? Bob golfed 1000 holes in 2012 at the age of 85 and repeated it the following year. At 89 he's still hitting the links. It is Bob's hope sharing his story will help others struggling with addiction and recovery to know they are never alone and there is always hope!
