Keith is a recovering alcoholic in his mid-thirties, struggling to get things right as he makes his way through his new life being sober.

He attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings but they don't seem to help as he often turns them into a farce by revealing very embarrassing situations he gets into.

Whilst he attempts to be a good husband and father, his optimism for his family and attempts to do the right thing tend to lead to even more problems.
