(#1259) Dick A (Lithia Springs, GA)
7/17/2010 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 35th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Originally from Louisville, KY from a long, very distinguished military line, the first alcoholic, Dick got sober in Atlanta after calling the Hotline and speaking to Helen R. He had a loaded gun and was ready to blow his brains out.

Since then he has been to 7 Internationals, 32 Atlanta Roundups (on the first one he was in a suit helping with the parking), and just returned from Akron to celebrate AA's 75th Anniversary.

His wife Barbara was the Al-Anon speaker earlier in the day.

Dick was very successful in advertising until alcohol took him down.

Bill W. called us the "children of the night".
