A sailor comes home

I was in the Internationalists [sea-going AAs] at one time, and I would like to be back there.

Last trip, I was having trouble with alcohol, so one day I found a copy of the June 1974 Grapevine slipped under my door. It came at the right time, for I was in the act of surrendering to my Higher Power. By "coincidence," when I opened this copy of the Grapevine at random, I just happened to open it to page 10, and there was a reprint of the article "The Act of Surrender," by Harry M. Tiebout, MD.
