(#94) Beth G. (Brecksville, OH)
10/26/2000 in Hagerstown, MD  EVENT: 16th Annual Area 29 Fall Conference  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Funny, informative and passionate: Beth told her sponsor she can't wait to get "there", who said, "You will never get 'there'. Its a journey". Beth is a housewife who hid her wine hanging out the window in a bottle on a rope and in the douche bag. Her dad was murdered in a speak-easy when she was a child. Beth comes from a long line of alcoholics but is one because she picked up the first drink. They call this a lonely sickness. After she came to the program her sponsor went with her on a very funny 12 step call. Our job his giving Hope to the new comer.

I once handed this talk to a new woman at my home group. She looked at the CD and said "Brecksville is my home town. Beth is my sponsor." Turns out she was 19+ years sober, considering relocating and looking for a home group. We both considered it another God-shot.
