These are my memories. I strive for demonstrated, not autobiographical truth. I concede various illegal hypnotic drugs may have marred some memories. Nonetheless, the parade of stories is true. Some names have been altered to maintain personal privacy.
I owe not only my sobriety, but my life, to Alcoholics Anonymous. Yet I claim no personal distinction in AA. I do not represent Alcoholics Anonymous, nor am I a spokesperson or leader in AA. AA neither endorses nor opposes my writing.
