(#1635) Dave C (Raliegh, NC)
3/21/2009 in Marietta, GA  EVENT: 19th Marietta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 51 years since 9/12/1957, Dave tried to focus on sponsorship in this talk.

A high school coach by profession, drinking began to take away his sense of responsibility.

He lost everything and went to the state insane asylum five times in six months escaping with two other inmates the last time.

His mother spent thousands of dollars trying to cure him. She had a nervous breakdown.

He spent time in prison for things he did in a blackout.

How he got into AA after that is a wonderful story of the love of those inside and outside the Program.

There is a detailed description of his story on WeJoy with his 1999 talk ten years earlier at the same event.
