(#2053) Dick G (Parker, CO)
7/21 or 22/1979 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 4th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 10 years since 2/16/1969, Dick got sober in Santa Barbara, CA. He grew up with two affluent alcoholics and swore he would never be like them.

There was an advantage to them drinking: He rolled his mom and dad when they got drunk. He was one of the best dressed kids in school.

Speaking about intellectual denial he shares:

"When I came to Alcoholics Anonymous I was 30 years old and a mass of unrealized potential."
