Three Musketeers

I had my last drink in the spring of 1987 at boarding school in Massachusetts. I was 16. A couple of months later, in August, I went to my first AA meeting in Mamaroneck, New York.

When I returned to boarding school in September, I met Pam, a fellow student also new in recovery. We started a new AA meeting in Northfield, Massachusetts. One day, a nearby girls’ boarding school sent a car full of girls to the meeting, and the next thing we knew, a young people’s AA group was flourishing in a remote town with a population of only 1,000 people.
