(#2165) Lynn W (Laguna Beach, CA)
10/16/2003 in Gainesville, GA  EVENT: 50th Georgia State Convention  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Over 38 years sober, Lynn is speaking in the place of Searcy W who died at age 95 with over 57 years.

Born in Kentucky, raised in Chicago, Lynn first came to AA in Atlanta 41 years before and was told he had more drinking to do. And they were right.

He knew his case was different and he damn near died.

"The four 'C's' really characterized my drinking. I drank in the beginning for comfort and then I drank for courage and then I crossed that line from controlled to uncontrolled drinking and then I drank compulsively and the end result was total corruption."
