(#2127) Steve B (Van Nuys, CA)
Feb 1999 in Huntsville, AL  EVENT: 8th Huntsville Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 19 years since 5/25/1979, wild and funny, Steve takes frequent shots at the crazy stuff that happens in AA meetings.

In his drinking days, which he spends little time discussing, he mostly sat in his chair and drank himself to death crying and watching the $10,000 Pyramid.

"I don't identify as a drug addict. I never met a drug alcohol couldn't help."

He got sober in Columbia, SC with some crusty old timers.

In 1981 he moved to California and got a job in a restaurant even though he had a Master's degree. He considers it a great training ground for becoming a part of the human race.

He does a great piece on what I call the Contra Traditions - what they might be for the selfish and self-centered.

He finishes with his oft requested "deal God cuts with us in Step 3".
