(#2550) Allen F (Long Beach, CA)
Oct 1987 in Stockton, CA  EVENT: Southern CA Fall Conference  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Powerful talk.

Sober 16 years since 1971 at age 20, Allen, now 36, says it is not important why I am an alcoholic.

What is important is that I know I AM an alcoholic.

He lived a life of jails, institutions and violence but he was not loaded all the time when he did those things.

He started attending AA in jail.

He got out and lasted three days before he was back in.

Then he asked God for help and the result was bizarre.

He does not identify himself and an alcoholic and a junkie and an addict.

He believes that saying he is an alcoholic covers a myriad of things.
