(#1940) Adam T (Los Angeles, CA)
8/19/2017 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 40th Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 19 years since 1998, Adam was a newcomer for 17 years. He-picked up a bucket full of white chips.

He started coming to AA when he was 16 years old.

He went through residential treatment 28 times - not 28 days.

His sponsor told him that did not make him an alcoholic. It just meant he spent half a million dollars for a Big Book,

His mom eventually moved and did not leave a forwarding address.

This talk is packed with memorable tidbits.

"I didn't come to AA because I had a bad weekend. I had a couple of bad decades. And for me, eventually, this becomes a matter of life and death."

"If God didn't give me more than I can handle, I wouldn't need God's help."

"If your new, 'help' is the dirtiest little four letter word in AA."

"Driven by 100 forms of fear boils down to five basic ideas: Abandonment, Rejection, Betrayal, Disrespect and Authority."
