(#1457) Joe K (Lawrenceburg, TN)
9/17/1983 in 1983  EVENT: Georgia State Service Assembly (GSSA)  TYPE: AA, Male, Story


Sober 13 years since 5/15/1970, Joe served AA at the time as the Southeast Regional Trustee.

The son and grandson of the town auto dealer, after serving in the navy and NOT drinking alcoholically, he returned to start his own insurance business. He did so well, he started a finance company.

Married in 1949, by 1960 he decided to nit work so hard. He resigned from the insurance company and found the finance staff did not need him at the office.

Alcohol gradually began to take control of his life. The game of hide the bottle started with his wife Hazel with some rather funny episodes.

A non-alcoholic painter working at his home noticed his drinking and asked Joe if he needed help because he knew somebody.

The miracle happened when Joe agreed to accept help.
