(#1400) Don M (Louisville, KY)
8/19/2016 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 39th Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 35 years since 4/9/1981 at age 37, Don is a powerful and funny speaker.

Don grew up on a tobacco farm on the southwestern Kentucky/Tennessee border to a middle class family though he told many he came from a poor family.

"Probably the most informative thing I can tell you about my early life is that it was not a thing like I thought it was...My capacity for sel-delusion is astounding."

A lawyer by training and profession, he built up and then lost a successful practice.

He landed on the streets of Nashville where he got sober later to return to Louisville and life as a sober, productive member of society and the legal profession.

He even spent some time on the ethics committee for the state bar association.

Amazing turn around.
