(#1609) Dennis N (Easley, NC)
4/30/1999 in Marietta, GA  EVENT: 9th Marietta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 18 years since 2/1/1981 starting in Greensboro, NC, Dennis was told when he first came into the Program that he did not have any opinions until he read the Big Book, attended some meetings and had some sobriety under his belt.

"But I have learned since then that if you're sober and your black and your 6'4" and you weigh 259 pounds you can have an opinion if you want to. You might not get invited back but you can have an opinion."

He got sober with some old timers that said,

"If this thing is not working around your dinner table then it's not working around here either."

Dennis knows there are other ways to get sober; he tried them. That's why he is in AA.
