(#238) Charles L (Wintergarden, FL)
5/3-5/1996 in Marietta, GA  EVENT: 6th Marietta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Known as "The Arkansas Traveler" and sober since May 14, 1945, Charles was a naturally funny guy. He had his first drink while "huntin' somethin'" in Bush Bottom, AR where he came upon a moonshine still and the operator offered him "somethin".

At times he wasa barroom drinker, a real train-hoppin' Hobo and an inmate at the county farm. His description of his talk with a psychiatrist is one of the classic stories in AA.

AA was the light at the end of the alcoholic tunnel of despair and a voice that said come with me and we will do this together.
