Meet Dave.  A self-described "man on a mission," Dave's mission in life is to help others suffering from alcohol abuse/alcoholism.  Why?  Because he went through it himself.   He runs Sober Coach One, his online vessel for helping others .  No doubt some of you have already made Dave's e-quaintance, probably on Twitter (@sobercoachone).  If not, you better follow that guy because he's going places!  One last interesting tidbit: he offers unique advertising packages on his site for other sober bloggers, rehabs, etc. (he didn't pay me to say that either, for that matter).
