I can see why he would want to disband social gatherings. A few years
ago when I was a newbie I met some guy who told me he could initiate
me into the AA. I flew out to Florida where he lived and took a cab
to the address. A little old lady let me in and took me to a room.
It was a nice house and all but he made me wait for hours and hours.
There were no clocks so I don't know how long it was. I was begining
to fall asleep when he came in with a hood.
I found out the hard way that you don't "try" to join the AA. he duct
tapped a dirty burlap sack around my neck. I think it had been used
to hold fish. I was so sick from the smell and the fear I could
bearly listen to the strange egyptian gods he was calling. Then he
began whipping me and I went stiff untill he cut me with a posion
dagger it burned so bad I screamed and tried to tear the bag off my
head. I managed to get the small dagger away form him and plunge it
deep into his shoulder which caused him to faint back and I just ran
at the wall with all my force and hoped it was the door. It gave way.
I don't remeber how I got outside the house.
These days I just sit back with a beer and my Black Books from Dr.
Hyatt and I don't need anyone but myself.
Live and learn...but you have to live throough it!
