(#1820) Steve L (Brentwood, TN)
6/9/2017 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 42nd Atlanta Roundup Fellowship Event  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 27 years since 6/30/1989, Steve is a dynamic speaker, active in the Program on several level.

Here are some tidbits from the talk:

"I'm in the drunk tank thinkin' I'm different than the people in the drunk tank."

"A guy like me doesn't go to treatment...I was anxious, I was frightened, I was uncertain what to expect...I'm not getting in some circle and tellin' people, I'm Steve and I'm an alcoholic, whining about the most intimate details of my life and about three weeks later I was tellin' people more than they wanted to know about me."

His sponsor told him,

"You're not worried about the defect, you're worried what the defect looks like on you."
