Drinking and using had F****d my life and I was now doing 13 years for G.B.H. While in prison a guard told me that the parole board looked favorably on people who attended AA. So I went. It's amazing to me now that my best intentions were so skilfully subverted. What I mean is that I said to myself that I would do anything to get parole and i guess at the time handing my will and my life over to god seemed like a small price to pay. And to some I would have to admit being released after only three years would suggest something almost if not exactly divine.

When I need a little levity in my life, I go to an AA meeting!
Let me explain....
After a 23 year affair with the bottle, I decided to quit......so I did.
After I quit, I told my doctor about my decision to sober-up. He suggested I go to AA meetings....so I did.
At my very first meeting, I was told the customary "take the cotton out of your ears and stick it in your mouth".....so I did.
BIG mistake on their part. I wasn't the vulnerable, weak-minded, ill-educated victim they like to recruit.
In the news: A Giants fan was brutally beaten up at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, and is now recovering in the hospital.
Some people commented, "I just can't understand it. It goes way beyond the traditional rivalry."
Well I can understand it. The thugs who did the beating are the same kind of thugs as the ones who joined Hitler's Brown-Shirts and went around beating up Jews in another decade. They were just getting their kicks by hurting somebody else.
