(#723) Sean A (Vancouver, BC)
5/24/2008 in Bloomington, MN  EVENT: 35th Gopher State Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Very entertaining: Sober a long time, Sean has a long involvement in theater.

He comes from a large Irish Catholic family. Starting at age 14, he loved everything about drinking.

"We Irish have a fear of evaporation."

By 20 he was a daily drinker. At 24 he was at a quart of liquor a day and lived in the "wonderful world of chemistry" riding around Hollywood in a limo.

He met his wife in an elevator and they "tangoed their way into AA and Al-anon".

His wife just stopped drinking when she got tired of it.

Sean took it further but was able in his first moment of clarity to turn to the way his dad got sober which was in Alcoholics Anonymous.
