(#1504) Barney M (La Jolla, CA)
10/6/1995 in Daytona Beach, FL  EVENT: First Annual Fall Sponsorship Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Barney says he finds it curious we celebrate the start of AA on the anniversary of our first slipper Dr. Bob's last drink. For the first time since the Washingtonians, one drunk was talking to another drunk, "and he was listening."

A Chicago born TV news anchor who came to AA for all the wrong reasons, Barney found himself the somewhat unwilling single father of six.

"I don't have a drinking problem. When I drink I feel better."

Great communicator.
