(#1015) Bill H (Laguna Beach, CA)
8/2/1986 in Omaha, NE  EVENT: 9th Cornhuskers Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Humble and funny, living on a small boat in the bay outside Laguna Beach, CA, Bill claims he is an authority on stark raving terror and that is about it.

He got to the point after 27 years of drinking, where he was isolated at home with a sign on the door that said "Do Not Disturb - Illness in the House".

The Big Book story "The Man Who Mastered Fear" helped him to identify with AA.

Though his parents did not drink, Bill said, "My uncle was basically the town drunk and we lived in Los Angeles."

Bill's brother died when Bill was young and it was a key event in his life.
