(#2291) Buck M (Pensacola, FL)
3/10/2002 in Bainbridge, GA  EVENT: Flint River Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 27 years since 5/18/1974, Buck calls himself a "Fulltime" Alcoholic.

His mother left his father because of his drinking.

Dad quit, and she came back to him. He was dry for twenty years until she died, and he went back to drinking.

Buck had his first blackout at age 16.

A local policeman suggested he join the armed services to avoid looming consequences.

He dropped out of high school his senior year in 1955 and served 32 years in the Navy.

He spends over 15 minutes in the talk in the recovery part of his story, walking through his journey through sponsoship and the Steps.
